Ibrahimovic, the powerful Swedish goal-scorer, is inarguably the world's best player not currently playing in the World Cup, since the Swedes didn't make it through qualifying in Europe. While this memoir came out in Europe last fall, it only just became available in the U.S. It's worth a read even though the protagonist won't be playing this month, since "Ibra" provides an unvarnished commentary on many of the modern stars and coaches who are under the spotlight in Brazil. Charismatic and outspoken in the media, Ibrahimovic holds nothing back as he takes us through his evolution from bike-stealing immigrant kid childhood in southern Sweden, to the flashy, Ferrari-driving scorer he is now.
