Ruy Castro ´ 3 summary

N era would be remembered as one of the all Time Greats The Only Downside For Me Was The Lack greats The only downside for me was the lack detail on the social and cultural environment in which Garrincha lived I feel I learned an incredible amount about Garrincha but less than I expected about the Brazil of the 50 s and 60 sI first the read the book when the English translation came out in 2004 and I thoroughly enjoyed this reread I highly recommend it for any football fan and is a Kentucky Grandmothers great companion book for watching Russia 2018See all my sports book reviews at A very uick engaging read about a fantastic Brazilian soccerfutebol player that a lot of fans of today know little to nothing about Manuel Francisco de los Santos nicknamed Garrincha was a dribbling legend probably the best who ever lived and a true joy of the people that helped Brazil reach the lofty heights of World Cup success in 58 and 62 as well as league championships for his professional club Botafogo in Rio de Janeiro Even in 2018 when I visited Rio he was remembered inraffiti portraits on the white walls near Botafogo s HThe book was translated from Portuguese to English competently and #there weren t too many Štěky Broka Špindíry glitches that were THAT distractingThe book did areat job # weren t too many The Blackmailed Secretary glitches that were THAT distractingThe book did areat job chronicling Garrincha s rise from impoverished beginnings to the heights of football If the Magic Fits (100 Dresses, greatness with Garrincha seemingly and blissfully along for the ride coupled with prodigious amounts of alcohol cacha a primarily and womanizing The alcoholism eventually killed him as it so often needlessly does and the author did areat job documenting Garrincha s downfall as wellI d highly recommend this book to any devoted soccer fan andor anyone interested in Brazil especially its history from the 1950s through the early 1980s My only criticisms about the book were the ENDLESS comments on how well endowed Garrincha was the lack of discussion on how Brazil s then military overnment essentially pimped him out for political purposes in the run up to the 66 World Cup the lack of discussion at the end of the book about Elza Soares the Brazilian samba singer and Garrincha s second wife who tried and failed to help him as well as the aftermath of Garrincha s death in 83 A truly fantastic biography of a fantastic albeit deeply flawed footballer Any football fan would like this In summary he Won Two World Cups two world cups being a heavy alcoholic The parts before and after his career are also reat The sort of unprofessionalism in this book has pretty much disappeared at top level football It s really unlikely that any world class footballer from now to the end of time could ever have a interesting biography admitted read this in english.
