Pele to Write Memoirs

Brazilian soccer legend Pele has signed a contract to write his autobiography


Brazilian soccer legend Pele has signed a contract with publisher Simon & Schuster to write his autobiography, which is planned to release in 2006 in time for the World Cup. The Publishers' Marketplace Web site described the deal as a "major deal," a term typically used for contracts worth at least $500,000.

Moreover, Simon & Schuster's New York spokesman Adam Rothberg said that the publisher's London office had signed world rights for the new book, to be called "Pele: the Autobiography." This will obviously be Pele's second biography after his previous one in 1977 and countless books that had been written about him.
