Abstract:

There is only one David Beckham--and it's not always the one you read about in the newspapers and magazines or see in the movies. From humble East End London beginnings, the boy with prodigious soccer skills grew up to be one of the most gifted athletes of his generation as well as a sex symbol and fashion icon. Along the way he married Spice Girl Victoria "Posh" Adams, and together they inhabit a celebrity whirlwind of Diana-esque proportions. Here, Becks talks candidly about the perils of fame; the struggle to balance his roles as husband and father with his globetrotting existence as an international soccer star; his most memorable and heartbreaking career moments; the controversy surrounding his first year at Real Madrid after his transfer from Manchester United, the English team he led for more than a decade; and, finally, his love of America, where he plans to play professionally.--From publisher description.
