    Although I enjoyed reading this book because I am a big fan of Wenger as a coach, and Arsenal as a club, I do recognize that there are some short-comings to this book as a balanced picture of Wenger's life and career. It is extremely positive, even to the point of glossing over what could be explored as his weaknesses and/or flip sides to his outwardly presented persona. This book is less well-rounded view and more exploration of that public persona. Fans of the club get stories about their hero [...]

    Fine biography and a decent insight into the mind of the great Wenger, but direct quotes and interaction are limited, and I found myself just more eagerly anticipating the autobiography that Arsene will one day hopefully write.

    There are of course, two things you're looking for in a biography. One - the story of the protagonist, and two, some goddamn literary merit to the writer. Rivoire is a prolific sports writer (having written too many of these biographies on everyone in the field) apparently, and that only makes me completely suspicious of him. I'd prefer my biography to be written by someone who has a personal story concerning why they chose their subject, etc.In the absence of all that, I'd at least expect a lit [...]

    This is a very good read. It's main weakness is that it's not an autobiography, and that's a compliment of course. There are points in the book that left me wanting a bit more detail. Perhaps someone like Amy Lawrence could do more justice. I guess Wenger's critics may not enjoy this book as much because the book talks more about the ups than the downs, and has a very positive vibe to it. Being a fan of Wenger this really didn't bother me too much but a little more probing of his 'failures' woul [...]

    I found there were too much information on football match statistics which I already knew from newspaper or sports magazine. I believe there are some moments and events from which readers could get more interesting insights rather than general information, but were left disappointed, though it could be a reflection from Arsene distant personality. Perhaps when he retires, we can read another biography, one that exposes him more, not merely his achievements with clubs.

    A complete portrayal of the man managing Arsenal Football Club. You will get a complete look into the life of Arsene Wenger, his childhood and adult life, entry into football management and his various stints in world football. Probably the most in-depth account of the man you can ever find. Must read.

    Re-reading it, it occurred to me that the book really lacks a critical voice. Everyone in it is really positive about Wenger, which is understandable, but there's no counter voice, which tends to make him a bit too much of a saint.Still, it offers a good insight in his footballing philosophy.

    Lots of stats and history of Arsenal and Arsene's career. A really good read for Gooners and footy fans in general. It was a quick read for me because I couldn't put it down.

    Very well written. Easy to read. Shows the professor like never before.Then again like my other reviews on Arsenal books I am a bit biased.
