In the years since his arrival at Highbury, Arsene Wenger has made Arsenal FC double double winners and transformed the reputation of English football in general.
Jasper Rees has been granted access to Wenger's friends and family, players and rival managers, to write the untold story behind this deeply private man.
He follows him from childhood in Alsace, through his stints as a journeyman player, to his days as a coach at Nancy, Monaco, Grampus Eight and finally Arsenal, where with his revolutionary ideas about man-management, psychology, diet and fitness, he has turned a team of old English crocks, young French misfits and a Dutch master or two into one of the most sublime footballing teams ever seen.
