Adored by fans of Arsenal and France worldwide, he has twice been voted Player and Footballer of the Year. But this living legend started his career with a pair of borrowed boots and endured a hazardous journey from Guadeloupe to France, whose national side he would join. He stayed focused on the ball and rose through the French ranks to be spotted by Arsene Wenger. At Arsenal, the pair re-established the north Londoners as giants. A World Cup and European Championship winner, Henry has his formidable sights set on the Champions League. He is a modern-day superstar. In this revealing biography, Ollie Derbyshire speaks to Henry's family, friends, and team-mates and reveals for the first time the full story of a footballer destined to be ranked alongside giants such as Pele and Maradona.
