This all-inclusive biography traces his incredible life starting from his early years playing for Manchester United at the age of 17 up to his career with Paris Saint-Germain in 2013—his entire salary for which he pledged to a Parisian childrens charity. Beckham’s successes on the field—he is the only player to score a goal in three different World Cups—are only matched by his public accomplishments. Aside from his marriage to Victoria Beckham, he is also known for his support for UNICEF, his work as a goodwill ambassador for the charity, and for founding soccer academies in both Los Angeles and London.
