Rags to Riches

In many ways, the autobiography of David Beckham reads like a fairy tale. It's a rag-to-riches story of a poor boy from London who grows up to become one of the world's most recognized celebrities. In his own words, David Beckham describes his life from the first time he put on a Manchester United jersey at the age of three, to the first time he set eyes on his princess, Posh Spice, to the day he was named captain of England's national soccer team. Along the way, David Beckham fills us in on some of the interesting behind the scenes stories that paved his rise to the top. You'll hear about the day he booted a ball in his grandpa's face and broke his glasses, the details of his first kiss with Victoria and even the reasons he decided to leave Manchester United for Real Madrid in 2003 - Beckham tells all.

Beckham: International Celebrity

While Beckham is a great profile of David Beckham's life, it's also an interesting snapshot of what it's like to be an international celebrity. David Beckham talks about the pressure of having your every move photographed and reported on, the shock of finding out his wife and sons were part of a kidnapping plot, and the international media frenzy that happens everytime he changes his hair style. Beckham is a great read, especially for those of you who are die-hard Becks fanatics. Besides giving a detailed account of Beckham's life, dreams and thoughts right from Beckham himself, the book also comes with dozens of childhood photos, pics of his family, and a complete index of every goal he's scored in professional soccer.

    Drowning in a darkness, of deep despair. Believing the lies I hear, and seeing the truths not there. See the rays of sunlight, they shine upon you scars. Reaching for that broken smile, among the hidden stars. Hearing the tear drops, falling from your eyes. Believe my hidden secrets, and tell my stolen lies. Bring me to the surface, give me air to breathe. Let me see the sorrow, upon my broken dreams.

    Where do I begin? How you closed me out, or let me in?  You held my hand when things got rough but you shut me out when you had enough. You used me, verbally abused me, but you never let go of my hand. You walked and talked like a man, but I could see the child you used to be. The pain that hid down in your heart was ultimately what kept us apart. I was always there to understand, the pain you felt, but you wouldn't let me in.  And when I needed you to pull me up, you did with just a tease. You showed me there was no hope for me to get through my grief.
