You’ll Never Walk Alone

The world of professional soccer is a very competitive and overwhelming place, none of us can imagine what it would be like to play there. However in his autobiography, Steven Gerrard tells us the full on experience about playing in the premier league and the national team. As a child he was good at soccer but failed to enter club teams; eventually the Liverpool FC coach saw his talents and he was able to enter professional soccer. Gerrard went through several injuries, which endangered his career as a soccer player, but he was able to overcome them. He also talks about his wife and family members who helped get through the bad temptations when becoming a celebrity.

I personally enjoyed this book and felt I could relate to some parts in the book. At the time I was reading this, I had a broken arm and was out from playing soccer for a while, but Gerrard taught me that nothing stops people from playing when they really love the sport. His autobiography inspired me to become a better player and become more passionate for soccer.

I would recommend this to anyone who plays a sport especially soccer. The book is written from Gerrard’s point of view so you can understand everything that Gerrard had to go through. We do not often get to experience the world of professional soccer but this allows us to get a near first hand experience
