Revue de presse

"The book’s a riot; frank, anecdotal, dripping with hilarious self-deprecation..." ~Jonathan Northcroft, Sunday Times (UK)

"hugely entertaining" ~Henry Winter, Daily Telegraph (UK)

"smart and surprising" ~Paul Doyle, Guardian (UK)

"For those with an interest in football (soccer), for those with an interest in a well told tale, 'Carlo Ancelotti' by 'Carlo Ancelotti' with Alessandro Alciato (Rizzoli New York, $25.00, 264 pages, 35 photographs) fits the bill. The former star player, the famed coach of top teams in Italy and England, the outspoken Ancelotti touches all bases in this illuminating autobiography. There is something to learn on each page about 'the beautiful game' and the man some call 'the ordinary genius'." ~Frommer Luxury Travel

"For the first time in English, Ancelotti's autobiography, Carlo Ancelotti: The Beautiful Games of an Ordinary Genius, released yesterday. The book offers candid insight on the difference between the Italian and English games. Ancelotti's playing days at Parma, Roma and Milan are well covered, as are his recent managerial triumphs. Friend, and former teammate, Palo Maldini offers the forword."~Selectism

Présentation de l'éditeur

The entertaining, revealing, and controversial bestselling autobiography of one of the most respected figures in the world of soccer. Carlo Ancelotti is one of only six people to have won the Champions League—European soccer’s most coveted trophy—as both player and coach. After a successful career playing for several of the most important teams in Italy—and for the Italian national team—Ancelotti went on to become one of the most acclaimed and outspoken coaches in European football, managing Italian giants Parma, Juventus, and Milan before moving to Chelsea, one of the Premier League’s most successful clubs, in 2009. The book moves from anecdotes of his life growing up in Reggio Emilia to stories of his time playing among the best footballers in the world. With a characteristic mixture of sharp insight and humor, Ancelotti explores the differences between the Italian and the English games, shares his thoughts on soccer’s future with the MLS in America, and reflects on the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. With a preface by the legendary former captain of the Italian national team, Paolo Maldini, this book is at once a tactician’s bible from one of the world’s most celebrated footballing minds, the fascinating story of an ordinary man reaching great heights, and in part a revealing tell-all from an outspoken insider in the cut-throat world of European soccer. The perfect book for anyone with a passion for the beautiful game.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Some amusing anecdotes, but limited details 1 mars 2011

This book is certainly a little more candid than I expected it to be. Carlo voices his opinion about a few players, coaches and club directors and staff, which mostly fit in with what the media portrays of them, but this book does give some additional insights. He shares several anecdotes which give some idea of the kind of camaraderie which exists between teammates, most of which are hilarious! He also briefly goes over his contract negotiations with various clubs he has coached (and almost coached), and even provides a copy of his coaching contract with Juventus. Carlo also talks about each of his Champions League finals as a coach.

However, my main disappointment was that he would very quickly go through each of these topics without getting into too much detail. There is no detailed tactical analysis of any football game, not much information about calciopoli and not enough about players which most football fans don't know already. I understand that Carlo still has several years of coaching ahead of him and cannot risk offending anybody, but I did hope for more given that this is an autobiography.

However, Carlo has a good sense of humour which is evident throughout the book and the fact that he has interacted with some of the biggest names in football provides enough material for one to keep turning the pages. Overall, this is a very good read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fantastic Read! 22 décembre 2010

I'm not a supporter of Chelsea or Milan or even Serie A but Ancelotti has won many top trophies and I was curious to see what he has to say. This purchase turned out to be a fantastic purchase! The book takes you from his playing days to his start as an assistant on the Italian national team in the World Cup and on wards to the Serie A clubs and Chelsea. The best part of this book is the author never drags on with his stories, each chapter is fairly concise, he focuses a lot on stories and opinions involving the players, managers and directors rather than a certain game or incident. Some examples include off-field activities involving Chelsea and Milan players, his first training session with Kaka, his impressions of the various mangers and directors in Serie A. Overall I feel any fan of European clubs will find it a fairly interesting read!

Well written, with a lot of humor. I was in between youtube and the book the whole time reliving Carlo's triumphs.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent read, especially for A.C. Milan fans 27 mai 2013

This is a must read especially for A.C. Milan fans. It tells you insight about Milan and what it means to become a Milan fan.

Apart from that this is book is a page-turner. There are so many interesting stories and I have to mustered my strength not to laugh out like mad man.

This book is not about football tactics, management or backroom negotiations. It's a story about a man who has win so much as a player and as a manager.

My only disappointment is that the cover picture should not be him with Chelsea shirt because (1) there's not much chelsea-related story and (2) ultimately, he has identified himself so strongly with A.C. Milan, the cover should be him with Milan shirt.

In the end, buy the book and enjoy the ride.
3.0 étoiles sur 5 Funny but not for those looking for game strategy 8 décembre 2011

I was looking for Ancelotti's game planning and tactical details but found none in the book. He did reveal a side of his persona that I did not know: the guy is hilarious!; His love of food is hysterical; good anecdotes, easy read. Too bad he was replaced at Chelsea but I sincerely hope he goes back to training soon, maybe his beloved Rome that is not doing so great under Luis Enrique.
