Was George Best the greatest soccer player ever? Certainly he was the first truly international superstar of the game. With Best’s death at age 59 on November 25, 2005, soccer fans will appreciate even more this complete story—and celebration—of his life. The riveting narration, with a showcase of 130 photos, covers little-known facts about his youth through his most mesmerizing on-field feats (including two League Championships and one European Cup), as well as the celebrity lifestyle that destroyed his career. Although it’s been decades since Best’s last game, the soccer world will long remember the wunderkind from Belfast.
