Summary

Pele, known to his family as Edson Arantes do Nascimento, grew up playing soccer on the streets of Bauru, Brazil, using a sock filled with newspaper for the ball. Luckily, the practice paid off, and by the time he was 16, he was already the top scorer in the nation. Find out how Pele became the only player ever to win three World Cup trophies-and how he earned his reputation as the greatest soccer player of all time. Book jacket.
