Publisher's Summary

The exclusive behind-the-scenes story of the Mauricio Pochettino revolution at Spurs, told in his own words.
Since joining the club in 2014, Mauricio Pochettino has transformed Tottenham from underachievers into genuine title contenders. In the process, he has marked himself out as one of the best young managers in the world, more than holding his own against the Premier League's established heavyweights. He has done so by promoting an attacking, pressing style of football and by nurturing homegrown talent, fully endearing himself to the Spurs' faithful along the way.
Guillem Balagué was granted unprecedented access to Pochettino and his backroom staff for the duration of the 2016-17 season, and he has therefore been able to draw on extensive interview material with Pochettino, his family, his closest assistants, players such as Dele Alli and Harry Kane and even a very rare conversation with Daniel Levy to tell the manager's story in his own words.
From Pochettino's early years as a player and coach to his transformation of Tottenham into one of the best teams in England, this audiobook uniquely reveals the inner workings of the man and of his footballing philosophy. It also lays bare what it takes to run a modern-day football team competing at the highest level over the course of a single campaign. The result is the most comprehensive and compelling portrait of a manager and of a club in the Premier League era.

Different to what I expected

Really enjoyed the format of this book, and there were some really good clear lessons that I have taken on board from Pochettinos leadership philosophy.

Excellent

Once you get past the fact that the narrator has a posh English accent that is nothing like Pochetinos. it's very enjoyable. The narrator actually gets into the soul of Pochetino very well & the occasional mispronunciation that gives away slightly that he probably isn't a football man are minor gripes. II started this in hardback & finished it with the audio book. both were equally satisfying.
