Soccer Star Cristiano Ronaldo Goal Latin Stars of Soccer by John Albert Torres is just one of a growing number of fine books about sport stars that have been published by Speeding Star whose motto is Keep Boys Reading Coming in at a slim 64 total pages and aimed at a middle school crowd, this book is a quick view into Ronaldo s life and career Starting with a look at the young athlete s later triumph, the book then goes back to capture the star s early family life, hard times, struggles becoming a better athlete and finally his success in World League Soccer while winning every accolade possible Throughout the book much is written about his determination and will, about overcoming obstacles and finding the positive energy within to become the best His rise in the sporting world as depicted here is that of role model, and rightly so But there is also the emotional side that is explored, how he hates to lose so much that it may appear to his fans as if he were not enjoying the game, something he is still trying to overcome This is both a fast and interesting look into Ronaldo s young life and should well be an inspiration to young sports players across the world This was a Goodreads win My only complaint is that this book was too short, which means I have to read about him from other sources This is a first reads review I think this is a great book for the young soccer fan The author writes in a very straight forward manner that young audiences will find easy to understand The reason for my three stars would be the lack of depth and the obvious bias the book has Ronaldo was expelled from school, but the book does not mention that it was because he threw a chair at a teacher The book simply says he threw a chair which seems to soften what he did The book mentions his son, and the fact that people do not know who the mother is, but fails to mention he paid the mother off to give up all rights to him He is not the saint the book portrays him to be, so the book is than a little watered down I understand this is for younger audiences, but those audiences are old enough to understand the complexity of humans.
