Welcome to a new episode of Between the Lines.
It is nearly six years since we published Andrea Pirlo’s autobiography, I Think Therefore I Play. It has been our bestselling book by a distance and made a huge impact on football culture.
Here, Martin and Neil from BackPage tell the origins story of the book – how they got the rights, their growing excitement as translated chapters arrived in their inbox and how they knocked Mary Berry off the top of the charts!
Mark Palmer also takes us inside the process of translating the book from its original Italian into English.
