Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Klopp: Bring the Noise by Raphael Honigstein, read by Adam James.

'I like the total intensification, when there are crashes and bangs everywhere, pure adrenaline and no one being able to breathe.'

Jürgen Klopp's super-sized personality and all-or-nothing style of football and management made him the perfect choice to pump up the volume at Anfield. The appointment sparked hysteria in the city, with fans and club officials delighted to get the coach they'd long admired from afar and eager to see the impact he would have on the club and the Premier League.

With exclusive access to Klopp's friends, family, colleagues and players, Raphael Honigstein goes behind-the-scenes at Liverpool, Mainz and Dortmund to tell the definitive story of Klopp's career, transformative footballing genius and how he is bringing the noise to Anfield.

Klopp's the manager to turn players into winners, to get that little bit more from them and transform teams like mid-table Borussia Dortmund into title winners and one of Europe's most acclaimed sides in just two seasons.

He's authentic, approachable and funny, charming media and fans alike. He's also merciless and exceptionally driven, his quick temper bubbling away barely under the surface.

Expectations have been high and even when results haven't gone their way, Liverpool's exciting football and Klopp's pitch-side passion have enthralled, culminating in a triumphant return to Champions League football.

Klopp follows his story from its Black Forest beginnings, as a player with 'fifth division skills and a first division brain', his accidental fall into management and the success at Mainz and Dortmund which paved the way to Anfield.

Great book poor narration

Interesting book on one of the most remarkable individuals from world football but the narration sounds over eager with tell tale signs that the person doesn’t follow football.

Rafa could’ve done a reading on his iPhone and it would be ten times better.

What a pity.

Deep understanding into a great man's way of life

Great book and it gives a deep understanding into a great man's way of life

As LFC fan now it is much clearer how and why Jurgen Klopp acts as he does and what values he stands for. I am deeply greatful for having him as LFC manager.

Good

The narrator’s pronunciation of German was poor, though the rest was fine. Otherwise a good introduction to Klopp.

excellent book

Great insight into the force of nature that is Klopp. Only one word of warning for him. He needs the Plan B. Chasing a game at any level needs the option of the big man up front and packing the box looking for knock downs. No defence likes an aerial bombardment. Added to the pressure and possession his teams create it completes the toolbox of how to break down defences. It's why his cup final record is not great. However, you can see clearly why players want to play for him and why LFC is the perfect club for him.

Narrator Ruins the Noise

The book itself is quite interesting and i think Honigstein has done a good job of spinning out 8 hours worth of story in which the main premise is that Klopp is a really charismatic guy. I certainly have a newfound appreciation for Klopp, but my feeling that sports journalism is in the most part quite dull is not really changed by this book. As ever, the human aspects of sport and how it is described is what makes sports journalism interesting. Descriptions of the games - they won this game, then lost the next one, they narrowly missed relegation thanks to this guys goals etc - how interminably dull. It is impressive that Klopp has had such success at his three clubs and I was hoping Honigstein would give a deeper insight into how he did it, but it seems it comes down to this; Klopp is charismatic and positive, he wants his teams to run a lot, his players do as they are told because they love him because he is funny and honest. I wouldn't have made it through the paperback version.

The narrator did a fab job of demonstrating that he was just that - a bloke reading a book about a topic he has no interest in. I have seen reviews saying that German speakers will be sorely put off by his poor German pronunciation, but let's be clear - he butchered almost every non-english name. I barely registered who he was taking about when he first mentioned Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Marco Reus, Mario Goetze, Robert Lewandowski are almost rendered obsolete by the poor narration. He can't even get a Brazillian name right. Poor Coutinho - the narrator clear has no knowledge of football. At least the Serbs and Bosnians had their -ic scratched, but but Subotic would'nt have appreciated the narrator's efforts. But besides the names, he even the English words he got wrong. Beatification was pronounced beautification, and there were others too. It was a truly poor show and whoever sanctioned the narration of this audiobooks should frankly be embarrassed. In a piece of non-fiction, chief protagonists deserve to named correctly. This narrator couldn't be bothered to do a better job. Perhaps he wasn't paid very much.

What a legend of a man

It was well narrated, very illustrative. How could anyone not love or at a minimum respect what this man stands for. I'm a Man utd fan but can understand why he chose the club he did

Several differences from physical copy

The audiobook misses a few pages of a chapter (chapter 12 I think) and then has a completely different ending chapter to the physical copy. Just a warning

Magnificent journey

I signed up to Audible specifically for this audio book. I had heard amazing things about the book but unfortunately couldnt get my hands on it, impatience coupled with current lockdown brought me to here. An absolutely superb listen and journey through Klopp's life. I understand all the hype it received now and I highly recommend it aswell, I'm already looking forward to listening to it again.

Well Researched and Written - Poorly Pronounced

This is a well-researched and written biography of the German maestro revolutionising Liverpool FC and dragging the Reds back into relevancy on the English and European football stages.
Digging deep into Jürgen's Schwabian roots and even the background of his parents, getting the inside story from family members, schoolmates, coaches and colleagues, this is a must-listen for all Liverpool fans and football enthusiasts.

The one major problem for me is the narrator's inability to pronounce German words and names. As you might imagine, this is something fairly significant considering the subject matter! The performance is otherwise very good, so if you can forgive (or even don't notice) this fault, then go ahead and enjoy this excellent production.

Fastinating Listen

We all know what Klopp's doing at Liverpool but the journey there is an engrossing listen. Honigstein covers Klopp's early life, his professional life from his Mainz days (as a player and coach), his remarkable trophy-laden spell at Dortmund and his first full season in charge at Liverpool. He interviews players, coaches and staff along the way, detailing Klopp's Gegenpressing, his highs and lows, and his influences during his managerial career,

A great listen! 5/5
