Dero : My Life
by Dwayne de Rosario and Brendan Dunlop and Lennox Lewis




Overview -

The autobiography of the best male soccer player to ever come out of Canada. Before Beckham, Kak , and Zlatan, DeRo was the godfather of Major League Soccer.

DeRo is the life story of one of the greatest athletes Canada has ever produced. Born and raised in Scarborough, Ontario, Dwayne De Rosario wasn't expected to make it out of high school, let alone to the top of soccer world. As part of a family of five, growing up in a one-bedroom apartment, he had to work for everything he had and sometimes that meant doing things he realized he didn't want to do. It was soccer that saved him from a life on the street.

For the first time, Dwayne shares many heartbreaking, life-altering stories from his mischievous childhood, an upbringing that made him the hungry, successful, superstar athlete he became. His strong Caribbean heritage shaped the person and the player the world knows as a four-time MLS Cup champion, seven-time MLS All-Star, Canadian national team captain, and record goal-scorer. He helped put Canadian soccer on the map, and it's clear that pursuit of greatness didn't come without struggle, both on and off the field. Now, DeRo hopes to inspire, and train, the next great Canadian soccer star.
