    Guillem Balague




    The story of the 2022 World Cup Champion and one of the greatest footballers of all time, Argentina’s Lionel Messi.


    ‘I have seen the player who will inherit my place in Argentine football and his name is Messi’ Diego Maradona


    On 10 August 2021, Lionel Messi’s beautiful Barcelona fairy tale came to an end as he completed a dramatic move to Paris Saint-Germain. Despite flourishing in the blue and white of the national side, delivering Argentina their first silverware in twenty-eight years – beating Brazil on their home soil to win the Copa América – Messi endured a difficult first season in Paris.


    Guillem Balagué has had unprecedented access to Messi’s inner circle including the player himself: his coaches, team-mates and family. From tracing the origins of Messi’s precocious talent in Rosario, Argentina, to chronicling his peerless seventeen-season career at Barcelona, and his tumultuous Parisian adventure, Guillem presents an authoritative and compelling account of an enigmatic footballing genius.


    ‘I can tell my grandkids one day that I coached Lionel Messi’ —Pep Guardiola

    or 3 X Rs.496.67 with

    Yuvraj Singh


    For the first time ever, Yuvraj Singh tells the real story behind the 2011 World Cup when his on-the-field triumphs hid his increasingly puzzling health problems and worrying illnesses. In his debut book, The Test of My Life, he reveals how plagued with insomnia, coughing fits that left him vomiting blood, and an inability to eat-he made a deal with God. On the night before the 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup final, Yuvraj prayed for the World Cup in return for anything God wanted.


    In this book, he lays bare his fears, doubts, and the lows he experienced during chemotherapy-when he lost his energy, his appetite, and his hair-and his battle to find the will to survive. Poignant, personal, and moving, The Test of My Life is about cancer and cricket; but more importantly, it is about the human will to fight in the face of adversity and triumph despite all odds.

    Mind Master: Winning Lessons From A Champion’s Life

    Rs. 2,390.00
    or 3 X Rs.796.67 with

    Viswanathan Anand


    “There’s something to be said about working towards achieving a goal without obsessing over how far you’re from it or how hopelessly you’re missing the mark each time. Once you shut out the clamour of the result and simply persevere, success is bound to be yours.’ – Viswanathan Anand


    Few people know better than Viswanathan Anand how to tackle the gravest obstacles and overcome the toughest odds.


    From the time he learnt to move pieces on a chess board as a six-year-old, Vishy- as Anand is fondly known – has racked up innumerable accolades. The first chess Grandmaster from Asia, he emerged onto the world stage when chess was largely a Soviet preserve, climbed the ranks to become world No. 1, bagged five world championship titles and won tournaments across all formats of the game. An ambassador of the sport like no other, his is one of the most revered names in chess today.


    In Mind Master, Vishy looks back at a lifetime of games played, opponents tackled and circumstances overcome and draws from its depths significant tools that will help every reader to navigate life’s challenges.


    • What role do tactics and strategy play in the preparation for achieving a goal?
    • How can emotions be harnessed to be of advantage in tricky situations?
    • What are the precautions to be taken before you decide to leave your comfort zone and embrace risk?
    • What do you need to do to stay relevant in the face of rapidly changing realities?
    • Is unlearning really the only way to learn?


    These are just some of the nuggets Anand touches upon with characteristic wit, easy wisdom and disarming candour in Mind Master – a delightful and invaluable exploration into the self that will thrill, inspire and motivate readers as few books have done before.

    Andy West


    Lionel Messi and the Art of Living is a bold and insightful examination of a world-famous sporting hero’s career from an entirely new perspective, providing a context extending far beyond the soccer field.

It encourages us to consider, to analyze, and—above all—to think about Messi’s career from a different viewpoint, understanding how his journey can be related to our own lives on a meaningful and impactful level. Containing exclusive, illuminating interviews with deep thinkers and high achievers from a number of different fields, this book delivers a fresh and inspiring approach to a global icon, ensuring that you will never look at Lionel Messi—or life—in the same way again.

    Rs. 2,990.00
    or 3 X Rs.996.67 with

    The definitive tribute that celebrates the life and legacy of Muhammad Ali, an American original.


    From his unlikely transformation from Louisville Golden Gloves winner to Olympic gold medalist to three-time heavyweight champion, civil rights hero and at one point, the most famous person on earth, Muhammad Ali and his journey were always chronicled and celebrated by Sports Illustrated’s writers and photographers. Now, all of those moments and memories are collected in Muhammad Ali: The Tribute, a deluxe fully-illustrated gift book that celebrates the life and legacy of this iconic athlete and champion.


    He shook up the world and became the boxer who went from the sports page to the front page. As a young fighter, he revolutionized boxing as the fleet-of-foot dancer who took the crown from Sonny Liston; his rivalry with Joe Frazier was legendary; he grew up into one of the toughest heavyweights of all time, winning The Rumble in the Jungle and the Thrilla in Manilla. He was then able to parlay that fame into a role as an elder statesman and inspiration to decades of athletes who would come behind him. All of those moments are captured here in distinct chapters that take you from Rise to Rumble, Exile to Return, Greatest, and Statesman.


    Written with the keen insight that only Sports Illustrated can bring, with a special gatefold that features stats and images from every one of this legendary bouts, and hundreds more black and white and full-color photographs that have become as iconic as the man himself, Muhammad Ali: The Tribute will stand as the companion piece to a legendary man and athlete.
