Lungo tutta la sua carriera Johan Cruyff è stato sinonimo di calcio totale, profeta di una nuova religione calcistica che unisce ordine e creatività, forza fisica e cervello, tradizione e rivoluzione. Capelli lunghi modello beat generation, idee libere e temperamento ribelle, quella del Pelé bianco è una storia straordinaria che parte dalla periferia di Amsterdam e arriva dritta all’olimpo del calcio: Cruyff entra giovanissimo nell’Ajax e con la maglia della squadra olandese vincerà tre Coppe dei Campioni consecutive prima di passare al Barcellona nel 1973 per una cifra record. Grazie a lui in quella stagione i blaugrana tornano a vincere la Liga dopo quattordici anni. Tre volte Pallone d’Oro, nel 1974 guida la nazionale olandese alla finale dei mondiali contro la Germania Ovest. Dopo essersi ritirato nel 1984, porta la rivoluzione sulle panchine di Ajax e Barcellona e con la sua filosofia influenzerà generazioni di allenatori a venire. Nel 1997 ha dato vita alla Cruyff Foundation che promuove progetti sportivi per i più giovani.In La mia rivoluzione Cruyff si racconta con l’umorismo e l’onestà che l’hanno sempre contraddistinto e consegna alla sua autobiografia la storia di un’incredibile eredità.

Johan Cruyff is widely regarded as one of the greatest players in football history. Throughout his playing career, he was synonymous with Total Football, a style of play in which every player could play in any position on the pitch. Today, his philosophy lives on in teams across Europe, from Barcelona to Bayern Munich and players from Lionel Messi to Cesc Fabregas. My Turn tells the story of Cruyff's life starting at Ajax, where he won eight national titles and three European Cups before moving to Barcelona where he won La Liga in his first season, in 1973, and was named European Footballer of the Year. He won the Ballon d'Or three times, and led the Dutch national team to the final of the 1974 World Cup, famously losing to West Germany, and receiving the Golden Ball as the player of the tournament. While on the field Cruyff was in total control, off the field his life was more turbulent with a kidnapping attempt and bankruptcy. After retiring in 1984, he became a hugely successful manager of Ajax and then Barcelona when he won the Champions league with a young Pep Guardiola in his team. In 1999 Cruyff was voted European Player of the Century, and came second behind Pelé in the World Player of the Century poll. In March 2016 Cruyff died after a short battle with lung cancer bringing world football to a standstill in an outpouring of emotions. A brilliant teacher and analyst of the game he love, My Turn is Johan Cruyff's legacy.

Carlo Ancelotti is one of the greatest managers of all time, with five Champions League titles to his name. Yet his approach could not be further from the aggressive theatricals favoured by many of his rivals. His understated style has earned him the fierce loyalty of players like David Beckham, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Cristiano Ronaldo. In Quiet Leadership, Ancelotti reveals the full, riveting story of his managerial career - his methods, mentors, mistakes and triumphs - and takes us inside the dressing room to trace the characters, challenges and decisions that have shaped him. The result is both a scintillating memoir and a rare insight into the business of leadership.

«Poechali», cioè, in russo, «andiamo». Fu questa l’ultima, semplicissima parola pronunciata da Jurij Gagarin il 12 aprile del 1961 alle 9 e 07, ora di Mosca. Poi ci fu tempo soltanto per i reattori del Vostok 1, l’astronave che avrebbe consentito al ventisettenne Gagarin di compiere un’impresa mai tentata prima: raggiungere lo spazio e – finalmente – riuscire a vedere la Terra dalla Luna. Tutto il mondo restò allora con il fiato sospeso, come dubitando che il figlio di un carpentiere si trovasse nelle condizioni di portare a compimento una simile missione. C’era in gioco, in quel momento, il senso stesso della Rivoluzione d’ottobre: un’aspirazione alla giustizia e all’uguaglianza che Gagarin racconta attraverso la sua stessa vita, dall’infanzia, trascorsa al tempo della resistenza contro l’invasore nazista e alla vittoria della «grande guerra patriottica», fino al duro addestramento riservato ai piloti dell’aeronautica, passando per la vita nel colcos e per gli studi preliminari all’ammissione nel Partito comunista. Una grande avventura dove in primo piano c’è l’uomo, le sue aspirazioni e i suoi sogni. Perché quello che è certo è che Jurij Gagarin – nome in codice Kedr (cedro) – riuscì a trovare la via del cosmo, riportando dalle orbite spaziali frasi di meraviglia e stupore destinate a restare famose per sempre: «Non c’è nessun Dio quassù».

“The best autobiography ever written by an actor. An astonishing work.” —Chicago Tribune Chaplin’s heartfelt and hilarious autobiography tells the story of his childhood, the challenge of identifying and perfecting his talent, his subsequent film career and worldwide celebrity. In this, one of the very first celebrity memoirs, Chaplin displays all the charms, peculiarities and deeply-held beliefs that made him such an endearing and lasting character. Re-issued as part of Melville House’s Neversink Library, My Autobiography offers dedicated Chaplin fans and casual admirers alike an astonishing glimpse into the the heart and the mind of Hollywood’s original genius maverick. Take this unforgettable journey with the man George Bernard Shaw called “the only genius to come out of the movie industry” as he moves from his impoverished South London childhood to the heights of Hollywood wealth and fame; from the McCarthy-era investigations to his founding of United Artists to his “reverse migration” back to Europe, My Autobiography is a reading experience not to be missed.

“Writing about yourself is a funny business…But in a project like this, the writer has made one promise, to show the reader his mind. In these pages, I’ve tried to do this.” —Bruce Springsteen, from the pages of Born to Run In 2009, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band performed at the Super Bowl’s halftime show. The experience was so exhilarating that Bruce decided to write about it. That’s how this extraordinary autobiography began. Over the past seven years, Bruce Springsteen has privately devoted himself to writing the story of his life, bringing to these pages the same honesty, humor, and originality found in his songs. He describes growing up Catholic in Freehold, New Jersey, amid the poetry, danger, and darkness that fueled his imagination, leading up to the moment he refers to as “The Big Bang”: seeing Elvis Presley’s debut on The Ed Sullivan Show. He vividly recounts his relentless drive to become a musician, his early days as a bar band king in Asbury Park, and the rise of the E Street Band. With disarming candor, he also tells for the first time the story of the personal struggles that inspired his best work, and shows us why the song “Born to Run” reveals more than we previously realized. Born to Run will be revelatory for anyone who has ever enjoyed Bruce Springsteen, but this book is much more than a legendary rock star’s memoir. This is a book for workers and dreamers, parents and children, lovers and loners, artists, freaks, or anyone who has ever wanted to be baptized in the holy river of rock and roll. Rarely has a performer told his own story with such force and sweep. Like many of his songs (“Thunder Road,” “Badlands,” “Darkness on the Edge of Town,” “The River,” “Born in the U.S.A.,” “The Rising,” and “The Ghost of Tom Joad,” to name just a few), Bruce Springsteen’s autobiography is written with the lyricism of a singular songwriter and the wisdom of a man who has thought deeply about his experiences.
