Mejor que una novela de Garcia Marquez ????? Mar 29, 2007
Como puede haber alguien tan imbecil de comparar este material basura con una novela de Garcia Marquez ????? No recuerdo cuando fue la ultima vez que lei algo peor que (Yo Soy el Diego). Es la historia de la vida de un GORDO DROGADICTO TRAMPOSO, contada en desorden y con excesos de prepotencia y despotismo. Es claro que este libro no fue escrito con "La Mano de Dios". Espero encontrarme algun dia a Bragagnini "El chepo" y romperle la cara, antes de que inmigracion vaya al restaurante donde trabaja y lo deporte de vuelta a su porqueria de pais.
Yo Soy El Diego: The Translated Version Jul 26, 2005
"The bittersweet memoir of soccer's most controversial and entertaining star, Maradona (born 1960), recounts his precipitous rise to fame and glory from humble origins in an Argentine shantytown. The book is remarkable not only for the inside look at some of the soccer world's most important events and figures of the last three decades but for the candid exploration of Maradona's polemical life off the field. His struggle with the immense pressure of fame studies once deemed him the most recognized public figure on the planet and his confrontation with the powers that be are all chronicled with a familiar and picaresque tone that illustrates his (often-flawed) profound humanity. Maradona's autobiography paints several often contradictory portraits: family man, creative genius, loyal friend, tragic hero, temperamental artist, man of the people, and rebellious child. The truth about Maradona lies in none of these incarnations but rather in the contradictory sum of his parts; he is ultimately an enigmatic yet sincere human being, a brazen child from the slums who suddenly found himself dining with popes and was unafraid to speak his mind. No matter is too delicate for Maradona's acerbic tongue: the discrimination endured by southern Italians in their homeland as perceived during his playing days in Naples, the corruption of the Catholic Church, his lifelong addiction to cocaine, and his strained relationship with the politicians and bureaucrats who have used him when convenient, among other issues. His is the defiant life story of one of the century's most brilliant and incisive athletes. Recommended for all public libraries and bookstores. Fernando Cwilich, New York."
I saw this in the library one day and took it out. All I knew about Maradona was the "Hand Of God" and solo goal in the same match. I decided to try this book."
It's a bit hard to digest this book as it's translation means it may not have the same feel asin it's original language. I had Maradona slang and words, which gave it a great personal feel and made it seem better. Maradona just tells it as he experienced it, which does make it better than I expected. I do see his point in some bits, especially when he mentioned how cocaine DOESN'T help your energy like steroids does, if my memory remembers my science right, because if that's true, he shouldn't have gooten banned.
It's not too long, not too short and has some humourous situations in it, which lightened the subject matter. I would like to see him bring out a new version with new chapters of whats happened since. This book is good as it does give you food for thought, which Maradona probably enjoyed.
pele is still king you fools Apr 15, 2005
pele will always continue tobe the true master&king of soccer not maradona
Pero quien puede discutir.... Sep 28, 2003
Digame alguien que lo vio jugar a Diego Maradona que el no fue el mejor jugador de la hitoria del Futbol internacional. El se demostro no solo con su selecion, como el fanfarron de Pele, pero con mas de cinco clubes alrededor del mundo. Que gracia me dio leer un libro escrito por el mejor jugador del mundo. Gracias Diego...Gracias por TODO.
