    Description

    Unbreakable: An Autobiography is the life story of Mary Kom, one of the greatest boxers of all time. She is the five-time winner of the World Boxing Championship, and in this tell-all autobiography Mary chronicles her love and passion for boxing and the numerous hurdles she had to overcome to reach where she is today!

    Summary

    In the book, Mary reflects on her journey to becoming one of the best women boxers in the world. Born to parents who were landless agricultural laborers in Manipur in North East India, she was immensely inspired by the Manipuri boxer Dingko Singh’s success story. She had started with her training under the Manipur state boxing coach at Imphal. With a childhood of hard labor and a strong background of athleticism, Mary was physically ready for the arduous training sessions and the difficult journey ahead of her. She trained relentlessly with only one dream to rescue her family from the dredges of poverty and a miserable life.

    Mary Kom also wries about her extremely difficult childhood and the various obstacles she had to face that made her the person she is. She also writes about the discrimination she faced in the male world of boxing and how is held her own and emerged victorious. Mary mentions about her bronze medal at the Olympics, her children and family. She further writes about her personal life, meeting her husband, Onler. The book is truly inspirational about a woman’s journey in a man’s world and eventually emerging out a winner.

    A most sincere account of an awe-inspiring life!

    I started reading the book last night at around 12 and i could not help but finish the book in one go, till 6 in the morning. The most striking quality of this book is the sincerity and ease with which Mary Kom describes her remarkable journey, almost as if she is writing a fairy tale.
    The book hooks you on in the initial pages because of the description of the lives and struggles of people in Manipur. It is a fascinating insight into the lives of the people there, so distinct in its cultur...

    Unbreakable - Dream Turned True

    “Unbreakable” is the autobiography of M.C . Mary Kom – the best Indian boxer – a fighter in true sense.
    How should I describe this book – story of ceaseless struggle or strength or honesty? While going through the pages I felt ashamed. I felt ashamed of myself , my excuses , getting disturbed over trivial matters.
    Mary proudly introduced her father – “ Apa was an uneducated landless labourer who found it hard to make ends meet”. I stopped to think who is an educated person? In spite of a...

    Pure motivation. Take a bow Mary Kom

    This is the first biography I've ever read, and am very motivated by this.
    I was very curious when boxing was introduced for the females in the London Olympics.
    And was very excited to see Mary contest in it.
    I always thought about the difficulties she might have been through to come to the ring.
    Despite having kids, she took the step and never gave up..
    I did see the last bout, where Mary lost, but has won millions of hearts, winning a bronze..
    Though we got 5 other medals.. this one by Mary...

    Awe inspiring novel

    An honest and insightful rendition of the life of Mary Kom. Though the book is very small in size but very accurately describes the tough situation faced by her, her mental and psychlogical conflicts and her struggle.
    If one wants to go deeper into the life of M.C. Mary Kom this book should be preferred over the bollywood movie made on her life.
    I wish more and more people read this book. It is not only about the struggle of a tribal north east woman but also about the problems of the north ...

    Unbreakable M.C. Mary Kom

    This is one of the best inspirational book in recent times. The book covers in minute details about the upbringing of a sports icon. She clearly depicts how she and her family fought bravely against all odds. This book also shows that if one has an aim then how he/she can fight and can go to the top. She lacked good proper education, nutrition and communication (English). Even against all odds she became an Olympic medallist. She never wasted her time as during pregnancy she started writing t...

    Abridged version of an extraordinary life

    Finished reading "Unbreakable" - M C Mary Kom's autobiography in one sitting, something I usually cant do. For the book is a hurriedly written summary of her extraordinary life. It doesn't fully portray her childhood years of struggle, her society or her inner conflicts. After the mighty "Open", this was a disappointment as a book in the genre of autobiography.The book is too short to justify her life and achievements. However, her life has been truly exceptional and inspiring. Hope they will...
