Product Overview

The book that rocked the sports world with its explosive revelations of a bitter feud between David Beckham and American star Landon Donovan-and how they overcame their differences to lead the L.A. Galaxy to the championship final

With unprecedented access to the Galaxy and one-on-one interviews with Beckham, veteran Sports Illustrated reporter Grant Wahl provides a vivid, behind-the-scenes account of the ego clashes and winless streaks, the rivalries and resentments, the big gambles and great expectations, and the volatile mix of celebrity and professional sports that was the Beckham experiment.

"Compelling...a detailed, carefully reported account."

Los Angeles Times

"The Beckham Experiment succeeds as an engaging peek into the weird worlds of Beckhamania and U.S. soccer. Grant Wahl, the country`s best writer on the sport, may even convince all those who played soccer as kids to remember why they loved the game."

Frank Deford, author of The Entitled: A Tale of Modern Baseball

"The `Becks' cultists will devour this, but so will those of us who simply like a damn good sports book."

L.Jon Wertheim, author of Strokes of Genius: Federer, Nadal, and the Greatest Match Ever Played

"Sharply reported...In the wake of Mr. Wahl`s highly readable book, both Messrs. Beckham and Donovan have reputations on the line."
