A photographic tribute to football's most beautiful eraPelé, the most famous footballer of all time, coined the phrase “the beautiful game,” and in the 1970s the game was at its most beautiful, free flowing, and entertaining. Football—or soccer, as many call it—became truly international thanks to extraordinarily talented teams and charismatic players who became the first generation of football superstars, long before David Beckham stripped down to his underwear.As Liverpool manager Bill Shankley said: “Some people believe football is a matter of life and death. I’m very disappointed with that attitude. I can assure you it is much, much more important than that.” Indeed, no self-respecting football fan can possibly continue living without this book. Features: Photography by Neil Leifer, Jerry Cooke, Harry Benson, Sven Simon, and many others, as well as images from the archives of Ajax, Barcelona, Adidas, Coca Cola, FIFA, and a wide array of international newspapers and magazines.
