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.
