Messi Barcelona event



Lionel Messi and the Art of Living will be available at a special event in Barcelona on Sunday 28 October, the day of this season’s first ‘El Clasico’ between Barça and Real Madrid.

Sunday 28 October, 1.00pm - 3.30pm,
Philosofia Café, Sofia Hotel, Avinguda Diagonal, Barcelona.

Author Andy West is hosting a book signing at the luxury five-star Sofia Hotel on Avinguda Diagonal (Metro stop Maria Cristina), located just five minutes walk from the Camp Nou.

West, BBC Sport’s Spanish football writer, will be signing copies of the exciting newly-published book in the hotel’s Philosofia café, next to the main reception desk on the ground floor, between 1pm and 3.30pm. The book will be on sale for €18, cash only.

Lionel Messi and the Art of Living, published on October 22, is a bold, insightful and unique examination of a world famous sporting hero from an entirely new perspective, providing a context extending far beyond the football field.

Although the details of Messi's story are already well known, this book studies afresh and anew his glorious triumphs and his desperate failures, his ongoing evolution and his endless struggle to succeed. It encourages us to analyse and think about his career from a different viewpoint, revealing how his journey can be related to our own lives on a meaningful and impactful level.

Containing extensive and illuminating exclusive interviews with deep thinkers and high achievers from a number of fields, including Messi’s close friend and long-time international teammate Pablo Zabaleta, the book delivers a vibrant and inspiring approach to a global icon, and ensures you will never look at Lionel Messi – or life – in the same way again.
