    Description

    The Test Of My Life From Cricket To Cancer And Back is the heart-warming and inspirational tale of cricketer Yuvraj Singh’s battle with the dreaded disease and how he was able to overcome this traumatic phase in his life.

    Summary Of The Book

    The Test Of My Life From Cricket To Cancer And Back is a book that provides its readers with insights into the most traumatic period in the life of cricketer Yuvraj Singh, as he struggled to come to terms with the fact that he was afflicted with cancer. The victory of the 2011 ICC World Cup receded far into the background in the light of this new development in Yuvraj’s life.

    The cricketer, who had recently been in the spotlight for his phenomenal performance in the World Cup, had to now see the world crumbling before him as he dealt with chemotherapy and its numerous adverse effects. What started off as frequent bouts of illness and insomnia, along with a persistent cough that caused him to vomit blood, had eventually been diagnosed as cancer. The author talks about the chemotherapy treatment, and how he lost his hair and appetite.

    The Test Of My Life From Cricket To Cancer And Back is a heart-rending story that never fails to grip the attention of its readers. Filled with varied emotions, doubts, and fears, the book is a captivating story of how a human being can fight to survive, even in the toughest of circumstances. Yuvraj Singh also speaks about Youwecan, which is an NGO that helps patients with cancer.

    A cricketer's biography that is not about cricket..

    . Contrary to what u might believe this book is deeper than what u might have thought... he bares his life open in his story... starting from childhood he doesnt shy away from his troubled growing up years with parental fights, father's expectations, how he neglected early signs of cancer and the shock of diagnosis, and how he coped up with it.. esp the sufferings he faced which people never knew, his doubts of future parenthood etc.... will move u emotionally in many chapters... A good book ...

    YouWeCan

    This is not a biography, nor a cricket memoir. This is a simple story, about a young cricketer, his journey to international cricket. We jump to WC 2011, where Yuvi was Man of the tournament, yes that is indeed a very big thing(for the non cricket people)The problems with health already existed, but the WC and cricket mean so much in India that Yuvi did not pay much heed. We are introduced to a very new side of this amazing all rounder. He bowls you out with this book and it is more of an emo...

    Teaches us how to overcome adversities of LIFE

    In this book our very dear yuvi has narrated his total step by life from being a cricketer to a cancer survivor. He also depicted how his mother Sabnam is such a type of mother who gave birth to her son twice in her life. Just mesmerized and inspired a lot by this book. This book is worth it's value.
