    One thought on “Commitment: My Autobiography”

    1. Dipten zirveye bir hayat hikayesi. Hayatta hiçbir şey için geç kalmadığımızı, ilk önce insanın kendine inanması gerektiğini, ailenin ve dostların önemini anlatan harika otobiyografi.

    2. This book was written by Drogba without a doubt. It's written in the plainest conversational English. That being said the book is very enjoyable and easy to read. As a big fan of Drogba and Chelsea I was surprised by a few passages in the book and can say that my level of respect and admiration for the man has only increased after finishing this book.

    3. Didier Drogba is arguably one of Africa's most successful footballers (pardon me Messrs Eto'o and Weah). In this tell all book, Drogba shares his life story in a very readable narrative.Drogba was born in Abijan, Ivory Coast the son of a bank employee and a housewife. At age 5, Drogba moved to France to live with his uncle and aunt. This would be where his football roots would be forged.With an uncle who was a professional footballer, Drogba found inspiration and encouragement to pursue a career [...]

    4. I tried to remain neutral (having attended the Bridge for over forty years) as to the quality of the book but quite happy to give it five stars anyway given the quality of the writing and the manner in which key dramatic moments unfold. Most importantly there is a clear picture of Didier, his values and attitudes. He shares the incredible journey from the low key upbringing in Ivory Coast and various regions of France - sent to a cast of family members to improve his opportunities - to superstar [...]

    5. Must read if you are a Chelsea fanGreat insider view of some of Chelsea FC's biggest wins, and some painful losses. Glimpse of the man behind the footballer we know.

    6. I think the thing that I'll take out of this book the most is the roundness of Didier Drogba as a character. As a supporter, we only truly see the side to a player, and so it's easy to sit there and argue that they're one-dimensional, and that's where you get this stereotype of footballers who are either too aggressive or cocky or some other synonym for 'bad person'. But I think what's so great about 'Commitment' - certainly in comparison to other autobiographies I've read - is it's distinct foc [...]

    7. This is such an interesting read, it's interesting to hear Drogba's own thoughts on some very memorable moments during his earlier career. I loved that you could tell he had so much input into this book too, which can often be doubted in books of this style.Another thing I really liked is that, although mentioned and there's a whole chapter dedicated to his wife, children and extended family, this book has mainly been written about Drogba's footballing career, alongside his feelings of these and [...]

    8. Definitely worth four stars for any Chelsea fan, maybe only three otherwise. Drogba provides some great insights to his thinking around certain key moments at the club and the various managers - it's particularly interesting to read the section on the champions league penalty shootout against Bayern Munich (the psychology involved and how he felt as he approached his crucial kick). The book is written in very plain English and easy to read.There are whole sections on his childhood, his late-star [...]

    9. A must read to any Chelsea fan to get to know more about Club legend. Also nice insight on football dressing room and relationship between manager so as a fan you understand the game is more than what we see on the pitch. As a fellow African I was happy with Drogba sheding some light on challenges in Ivory Coast and generally in Africa as well as valuable teachings of generosity. I enjoyed the read and waiting to another Chelsea's legend John Terry to reveal more about our beloved club.

    10. Keyif alarak okuduğum bir otobiyografi oldu. Kariyerinde yer eden hemen hemen herkesten detaylıca bahsetmesi, olayları ayrıntılarıyla anlatması harika olmuş. Galatasaray'da geçirdiği zamanları anlatırken aynı detayın olmaması biraz üzdü.Sadece bazı ufak bölümlerde çevirilerin özensizliği rahatsız ediciydi.

    11. This book is about the life of a famous Ivorian soccer player Didier Drogba. In the book, Didier Drogba wrote about how he play for Chelsea and other teams. I like this book very much because he is my favorite striker and in the book he told us how to be leader of a team.
