Vite segrete dei grandi sportivi

€ 19,90

This book recounts with irony and disenchantment the lives, vices and wrongdoings of the most popular athletes in the world.

Sometimes glory, fame and excessive competitiveness can play tricks, and very often the great champions have led lives that have been far less uplifting than their triumphs on the field. In addition to biographical profiles of the most famous sportsmen – from Michael Jordan to Lance Armstrong, from Joe Di Maggio to Andre Agassi – a part of the book is devoted to lesser-known personalities who have distinguished themselves in curious episodes (like Jack LaMotta, Suzanne Lenglen and Greg Louganis). The book is also enriched with an appendix dedicated to legendary challenges, the relationship between sports and politics, and the most notorious cases of doping.
