Product Description

About the Author

Born in 1994, Tom Daley started diving at the age of seven. Specializing in the 10 metre platform event, he became the youngest British World Champion in any sport to come first in the FINA World Championships. He represented Great Britain at the 2008 Summer Olympics, where he was Britain's youngest competitor. Tom won two gold medals for England at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in the 10 metre synchro diving and the 10 metre individual platform competition. In 2007, 2009 and 2010, he was named BBC Young Sports Personality of the Year. Tom lives with his family in Plymouth and is currently training for the 2012 London Olympics.

Informative and interesting read. Aug. 19 2013
By Bohdi - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Here we have a book that is well-written, interesting and engaging.

A lot of people have reservations because Tom Daley is only 19 years old, and this book was written and published when he was 18. However, I can quite gladly say that it is a very articulate, informative read, and told in a very mature and honest way.

The book starts out with the Olympian medalist giving some preface to diving, and the basics and technicalities of it. The concepts are a little hard to understand at first, but are necessary for the rest of the book. I have a new-found respect for diving now, and the intricacy of the sport, realising it is not just jumping off a board and twisting downwards to a pool.

'My Story' doesn't just deal with sport though. While diving is the predominant theme, it is a book that touches on topics like; Tom's passion for diving, his concepts on 'fame' and a grounded perspective of it, bullying from teenagers at school who ended up forcing Tom to withdraw and attend another school, and a heart-wrenchingly detailed recount of observing his father's battle with cancer and how a teenager handles that.

I honestly recommend this book as a quick, yet informative and interesting read. I definitely learnt a lot and enjoyed it.

my niece loves me! April 8 2013
By V. Santos - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This was one of the gifts on my nieces wish list for Christmas and after a two week shipping delay it finally arrived one week late. But upon opening the package my niece went crazy- so it actually worked out that it shipped late because she wasn't expecting it.
Having watched the summer Olympics and then visiting jolly ol' England my niece fell in love with Tom Daley and couldn't stop talking about him, well this is the next best thing i guess :-)

Daughter loves Tom Daly since the Olympics March 16 2013
By Kristin - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this book for our 13y/o daughter since she is madly infatuated with this Olympian since his diving. She has actually kept this book very close to her since it arrived. If she didn't know something about him before this book arrived, she certainly knows it now! Excellent pictures of his life, and experience in the Olympics.

AMAZING Feb. 11 2014
By Julia Lucas - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I love Tom Daley already but this book opened up parts of his life that makes me love him more. I don't deny that he is good looking but that's not the only reason I fell in love with him and this book helps show the different parts of his amazing and inspirational life
