Publisher's Summary

Jürgen Klopp's coaching career began in the German second tier at the unfashionable club of FSV Mainz 05, whom he steered to the Budesliga for the first time in 41 years. In 2008, he joined Borussia Dortmund, where he achieved back-to-back league titles and took the club to the UEFA Champions League final. He left Germany for one of the England's most challenging jobs: to manage Liverpool, a once-mighty club that had not managed sustained success since the 1980s.
It was not a task for the fainthearted. Anfield, Liverpool's home, is a temple to flamboyant attacking soccer powered by passion. In Klopp, Liverpool finally found a manager who embodied the essence of the club. Klopp is dynamic, expressive, restless, driven - he feels every move and play, every tactical shift, every contact on the field. His eyes betray a wild ecstasy and agony as his team thrives or falls. His game plan demands relentless commitment-the famous gegenpress - and he is one of the great personal motivators in all sport.
Raphael Honigstein, author of Das Reboot and Budesliga correspondent for the Guardian, has interviewed Klopp and followed his career since his early years, and better than anyone knows how to "bring the noise" to his subject.

Critic Reviews

"Honigstein digs deep to reveal a competitive, charismatic, and thoughtful man who - though prone to apologizing for mercurial outbursts - has in many ways outperformed his own limitations through hard work and passionate determination. The jury's still out on his accomplishments at the legendary LFC, but fans of European soccer should love this page-turning take on one of the most fascinating figures in the sport." (Booklist)

soccer fan dream book

book is great. it's a little jarring that its a nonfiction book jumping timelines, but managed to be entertaining throughout. if you are a mainz, bvb, or Liverpool fan you already love klopp and should absolutely read this. if you are any soccer fan though you will love the way it delves into the development of the back 4 in Germany and the intricacies of the different levels and systems in Germany.
