Sports biographies - especially football ones, it seems - do not have a great history of artfulness or appropriateness. They're usually written too early, with little insight or context. This one is different.

Stillness and Speed is the English language version of Holland and Arsenal's Dennis Bergkamp's story, told by David Winner through deft prose and a series of illuminating interviews with Bergkamp himself and his colleagues.

Dennis Bergkamp: 'You climb one mountain and see a higher one'

It have many of the elements of the biography, but is really trying to do something else; to get a handle on how genius is born and how great art comes to be. Hard work is part of it; resolute attention to, for example, the way different balls bounced. Training, fun, a desire to always do something meaningful and not 'just' try to do a job or simply win a game. All of it coming together in the revelation that as regards the second goal related above, he decided what to do when the ball was 10 yards away.

Instinctive genius, served by muscle memory.

It's a beautiful book, and like all good books its genius is in lifting the specific a footballer and finding things to say that are relevant and interesting way beyond the one arena. It's hard to imagine people who don't like football reading this, but really this is one for those who want to dig deeply into how a genius is set apart. In that context it might make a good companion volume to Malcolm Gladwell's Outliers.

We could just about manage.

Maybe you could say: 'Then money is my drive. Is it something within yourself?

Sometimes you hear of people having drive because their parents divorced. My parents weren't divorced. Perhaps it was significant that we didn't have much money when I was a child.

It doesn't explain my drive but maybe it formed me in some way. Perhaps it made me feel that, if you have a chance, you go for it and keep going for it. But it can come from different things. Let's say this kid wants to be a millionaire when he's That's drive.

Is it bad?

But if he thinks: 'I'm making one million each year now and if I play for five years I've got five million and that's it, I can retire,' that's different. Or: 'I'll stay in the reserves and just keep training as long as I can put gas in my Lamborghini.

It's not a passion from the soul.

And that's what you're looking for: the real passion that comes from inside. Patrick Vieira says that with you it is both artistic and spiritual.

And once you've got there you want to move on and go further. You keep raising the bar and therefore it's never good enough. You want perfection.

It's never good enough but it's within your reach. You climb one mountain and see the higher one. And I want to do it, I want to do that. But I like what you say that it's a passion — something within the soul, isn't it?

It's deeper.
