5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Read!, Sept. 22 2011
By 
This review is from: Rafa (Hardcover)
John Carlin is a briliant writer, and this book provides a beautiful bridge for those who do not speak Spanish, but would like to take a journey into the life of Spanish speaking Nadal. I read this book in three days. It was a roller coaster of a read with moments of great intensity as Rafa takes one through parts of his matches, point by point followed by moments of humility as Rafa explains the conditioning for which he remains humble and grounded by the support system encircling him. This book provides a generous understanding of the motivation behind Nadal's movements both on and off the tennis circuit. An awesome read for tennis fans!

4.0 out of 5 stars A better understanding of Rafa, the person, May 31 2014

This review is from: Rafa (Kindle Edition)
Rafa's been my favourite tennis player since he burst on the scene not so long ago. His book is written in a clear and down-to-earth way, with some chapters written by Rafa and some by John Carlin, a sports journalist. Also, interspersed between these chapters Is an ongoing narrative of the classic 2008 Wimbledon final against Roger Federer. This mix of Rafa and John Carlin combine to present details of Rafa and his life in a way that kept my attention throughout the book. Rafa's honest way of talking through his book answers lots of questions about his priorities ( family is absolutely number one ), his quirks ( which help him to focus in his own unique way ) and his attitude about competition ( fierce ! ). I thoroughly enjoyed this book and hope he writes another in a few years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rafa, Nov. 6 2011
This review is from: Rafa (Hardcover)
It was candid, honest interview and I saw the man behind the legend. Rafa is a real, honest man. Although a celebrity, he is just as normal as his fans. We can relate to him.

This review is from: Rafa (Hardcover)
Rafa is a totally honest,humble and always inspiring person, athlete and book.
He chose an excellent writer to help him with the book, so it's an excellently
written story.Absolutely compelling stuff for tennis buffs but likely gripping
for non buffs alike. Very highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read!, Aug. 29 2011
By 
This review is from: Rafa (Hardcover)
Rafa is complicated and the book is interesting as it points out many of the fascinating aspects of his personality..not all good ones!
It is honest, I believe ..and we get a real sense of how difficult it must be to carry the banner of #1 in the world..and keep up fight to stay on top.

Good read just in time for the US Open..

Vamos Rafa!
