Abstract:

With candor, heart, and intelligence, Rafael Nadal takes readers on his life's dramatic and triumphant journey, never losing sight along the way of the prize he values above all others: the unity and love of his family. In this memoir, written with award-winning journalist John Carlin, Nadal, one of the greatest players in the history of tennis, reveals the secrets of his game and shares the inspiring personal story behind his success. From the Mediterranean island of Mallorca, where he was coached by his uncle Toni from the age of four, to becoming the youngest professional tennis player ever to win all four Grand Slam titles, Nadal has managed the uncommon feat of being an acclaimed global celebrity while remaining an unfailingly gracious, relentlessly hardworking role model for people in all walks of life.--From publisher description.
