Synopsis

David Beckham is an English soccer player whose popularity extends beyond the field and into international celebrity. He has played for some of the best clubs in the world, including Manchester United, Real Madrid, and AC Milan, and is known worldwide for his free kick expertise and spectacular long-range shots. Beckham arrived to Major League Soccer in the United States already well-known to soccer fans, and by the time he left the Los Angeles Galaxy in 2012 with two league championships, he was one of the most recognized soccer players in the U.S. The Life and Career of David Beckham: Football Legend, Cultural Icon tells the story of Beckham's singular dedication to becoming a renowned soccer player and his impact on the sport in the United States and worldwide. Through personal interviews, photographs, and extensive research, Tracey Savell Reavis not only illuminates the story of Beckham's life on the soccer field, but also his status as a celebrity and a cultural phenomenon.
