Thierry Henry has always been a prolific goalscorer of natural, apparently effortless brilliance. Impossibly good in his day, he has passed into Arsenal legend and was also instrumental in France's World Cup and European Cup glories in 1998 and 2000. But as he approached the autumn of his career, Thierry's crown began to slip and suddenly a player who Arsene Wenger dubbed 'the greatest striker ever' was not universally loved and admired. Drawing from interviews and impeccable sources, as well as his own observations over the course of Henry's entire career, award-winning author Philippe Auclair has produced the most complete portrait of Henry ever written.
