Fascinating story, brilliant writing - as usual by Rohit Brijnath

Didnt know shooting could be so exciting before I read this book. Read it long back when it was released, but still can't get over going gaga over it.

Highly recommended for anyone who read about sport. What a story and what a narration by the best sports writer in the world, in my opinion…

Obsession for perfection,one of the best biographies

Rafa :my story and this book are the best books i have read recently.
I found a similarity in both of them i.e., obsession for perfection and "living in the present moment." "Dont think of the last lost point,focus on the present point."
flipkart service is great.and the book too great. (View complete review)

A Must Read

As as Indian sports fan, we wanted an individual medal at the Olympics - the Mecca for Sports. Over the years at the games, wrestler Khashaba Dadasaheb Jadhav at 1952 Helsinki tennis legend Leander Paes at 1996 Atlanta, weight lifter Karnam Malleshwari at 2000 Sydney broke the bronze barricade.

Quest for perfection

This book is probably the best sports biography ever written.
Most of us think that rifle-shooting is a simple, straightforward sport: just aim your rifle at the target, stand as still as possible, hold your breath and pull the trigger. In fact, it’s so simple it shouldn’t even be called a sport, right?
aren’t we wrong! This book provides the reader a great insight into this sport and into the mind of a champion from the best perspective possible: that of the shooter himself.
It gives an outstanding insight into the sport that is hardly known. And it could be a book on sports psychology by

A Yogi with Gun

" A shot at History" Really its a shot of old believes that winning a gold medal at world's largest sports carnival is not possible by an Indian. Heartfelt thanks to the writer and Abhinav Bindra to bring such a phenomenon book on his journey that will bring lot of confidence and inspiration to new generation.

As an Indian, I salute Abhinav for the laurels he brought to the country where 'The gold medal was remote. Never seen by most, never touched. And as described it the book 'this very foreignness of it made the journey more mysterious and arduous. The lucid flow of language is so promin

Making History using Biofeedback / Neurofeedback in Sport

I could not put the book down, it was so gripping. The fact that 1.25 Billion people had not won Gold in 100 years at the Olympics became Abhinav obsession. His mention of working with Tim Harkness using Biofeedback / Neurofeedback was huge for me, as he was using the ProComp Infiniti from Thought Technology, the company I started with Dr. Hal Myers in 1974. The fact I co-authored "Mind Over Muscle" with Major Laderoute, former Athletic Director of Combat Training for the Canadian Armed Forces, and that our Biofeedback had been used by Captain Steve Tibbett to win the Queens Medal at Bisley wa

worth every penny and every minute..

An excellent read,gives you goosebumps on more occasion than one.The effort put in by Abhinav Bindra is awe inspiring to say the least.An excellent example of how to use your blessings to the fullest.The last chapter in which the unfortunate state of indian sports and shooting in particular is highlighted,gives us an unseen view of the actual plight of indian sports.All in all,a fantastic book.A MUST FOR ALL THOSE WHO LOVE SPORTS.

Good Buy

I think this would have been a very good biography than an autobiography. From 1st page itself you see the Rohit Brijnath's penmanship all over - which in a way spoils the fun. Throughout the book I kept sifting facts from Abhinav's life and Rohit's writing.(I think the genesis is that this is Rohit's first book.) All in all a good read into the kind of mad hard work it takes to be a world champion. Damn impressive show by Abhinav - 5 stars to you - way to go man. Please don't open a money minting training school like Yuvraj or Sehwag and spoil everything!

The book is taut and very well laid out in detailing and psychology. Brilliant play of words that inspire the reader into the plane at which champions operate. Salute to a truly wonderful experience - reading this classic.

Rohit Brijnath,the author has nicely written this biography ,interesting till the end,and also complete. Will recommend to all and particularly, if you are intereste
