Yeah u read it right – I’m talking about Saina, not Sania !!The meteoric rise of a Haryanvi ladki – tracing the journey from Hisar, Hyderabad to Hong Kong – is the subject of her inspirational Biography by T S Sudhir.

My recommendation..don't buy..not worth

I bought this book confusing with the book for similar cover page (Playing to Win) which is actually written by Saina...and thought to warn other buyers if you are not aware of this. Frankly speaking this book disappointed me in terms where there was no depth in the content for eg: the first chapter covers different matches played by Saina and if you are following her from few years these are already facts which are well known and available on internet. Lot of time the book talks more on Gopi...

Truely Inspirational..

When I first came to know about the book, I had pre-ordered it before its release, as I am very much inspired by her, for what she is today and from where she came.
The book unfolds every aspect for her life like her birth, her childhood, her earlier days with training, her parents and coach. A small town girl who grew up in a middle class. When she was an infant baby and her father took her to the badminton court for the first time, she started smiling the moment she saw the game, her father...

Unimpressive

Extremely unimpressive. Not worth of 188 bucks. I acknowledge the success of Saina but the is just a crap. If you know Saina Nehwal very well, then its useless. Unexpected from T.S. sudhir. Moreover its is not the time to write a biography on Saina, i would enjoy reading her biography after few years.

The Hard truth, about becoming a champion in a sport other than cricket

I picked this book, after Saina won the Bronze in London Olympics 2012.

After reading this book, i realized, how its almost difficult to reach great heights in a sport, other than Cricket today in india!

I also realized, how a strong dream, Never to give up attitude in adversities, support of parents and a full time mentor is such an important factor in shaping up and become a champion!

That's the story of Saina nehwal!

Making of Badminton in India and Badminton Champion

A nice book, tells you so much about badminton and comparison of badminton with other sports. The title says Saina Nehwal but the book is a mix n match, as it covers Gopi, Jwala Gutta...Speaks everything about badminton, developing an interest in it, struggle, everyday change in life, compromises, family, financial state and many...

A wonderful read giving an insight of Saina, her game, her parents, family background, her coach Gopi, her style...

A story told with a warm heart

It is an easy read, especially for a sports enthusiast. But then there is far more to Sudhir’s book on Saina Nehwal. First, he takes you surfing on the tide of 2010 that washed over Badminton fans in India bathing you in the wholesome joy of her success. When you have swept ashore contented, Sudhir walks you on the long journey from Hisar to Hyderabad - the dream, the dedication and unwavering determination of not just Saina, but her family and her mentors.

It isn’t always easy to tell the s...

Excellent read

Excellent read, inspiring, specially for aspiring young champions, but also for everyone. To understand the hard work, heartbreak, sacrifice, focus that goes into the making of a champion. The journalist author is able to give the big picture, put the story of Saina's spectacular success in the larger context of badminton in India over the last few years. Also the people who made it possible: Parents and coaches. Truly, this is not just about sport. It's also about middle-class values, genero...
