When he was elected Pope, Jorge Mario Bergoglio was basically unknown. A year and a  half later, he has become one of the most popular world leaders. Journalist, Andres Beltramo, experienced this transition first hand. His new book, titled 'Quiero Lio' which roughly translates to, 'Take Action' delves into the Pope's pontificate and his style.

'I think it was the right time to answer a series of questions people ask themselves, like, 'How did this happen? What exactly did the Pope do to become one of the most sought after world leaders? What characteristics trigger this? And also, 'Is this all part of a secret plan?'�

The title of the book, makes reference to an improvised speech, the Pope gave during World Youth Day in Brazil. 

'Will there be action, here in Rio? Of course. But I want you to take action in your dioceses, I want you to go outside and take action.â? 

Since the Pope is trying to motivate Catholics to live out their faith, the author delves into what the world could expect in the following years.

'I'm hoping that after reading this book, people can have a better understanding. A deeper understanding of the Pope's style and what exactly makes him so appealing.â? 

The book is more than just an analysis-it also shares unique Papal anecdotes that the author has witnessed first hand.

'I think that as journalist, based here in Rome, we have a geographical advantage. We see what the Pope says and does every single day and we have the responsibility of reporting truthfully on what's happening. It's not the same to have journalists based elsewhere who make an attempt to tell the story, when they're not even here. Often times, those stories are rehashed.�

But beyond an analysis, or even anecdotes, the author also touches on issues like the Vatican Curia and also internal opposition to his reforms. Just some of many topics of this pontificate, that's still in its beginning stages.
