    Before you start reading the review, let me clarify that I have not read many auto-biographies, and those read were either classics or work of real geniuses. So reading this book, termed as 'autobiography' gives me a shocker as a literary person. It might give some excitement to Sports buff or a celebrity follower, but then by the end of the book nothing is revealed that might be of any worth to know to any of them.The language looks a disappointing translation from Hindi to English, and the for [...]

    A very short biography. I'd recommend it to those who want to know more about and doesn't have. It can be read in just 30 minutes.

    I think the best time to write an autobiography for a sports person is right after his/her retirement, not too early not too late and this is the normal trend as well. Saina wrote it when she was 22, one of the youngest one to publish an autobiography. That's why we'll miss the events took place after the book was published for exp achieving the number one ranking, then this recent knee surgery she had and when many experts were saying that her glory days are over she came back strongly by winni [...]

    My learnings :(1) As much as winning is sought after, losing is also an integral part of the game.(2) The players age or rank does not count beyond a point.(3) When you look back from a winning position, you tend to forget all the toil and slump.(4) You need to believe that you can win irrespective of your opponent. For that, visualization is very useful.(5) We Indians are making progress in every tournament. We are making it difficult for our opponents and that's the point media misses when the [...]

    An insight into the life of one of the greatest badminton players that our country has ever produced. A must read for anyone who wishes to pursue sports as a career. A memoir, written while still being active in the sport, can become a playbook for many who wants to follow the similar path, for the success formulae could be still relevant to the times. It is written in a simple language and feels very genuine. An easy read and one can breeze through the book without feeling aloof or patronized.I [...]

    A must-read memoir for all the aspiring badminton players, sportsperson and everyone else. Saina has managed to describe her journey succinctly. Reading about her dedication to the game and the country is quite inspiring. Also, there are some great photos that'll make all her fans happy, giving a pictorial sneak-peek into her life.

    Mixed feelings about this book. It seems like the publishers wanted to cash in around the hype created after Saina won her Olympics medal in 2012. Just look at what else she has achieved in the past 3 years She has become world no. 1 for Pete's sake! Surely it would have made sense to wait for a few more years and include these details in the autobiography? I have tremendous respect for her as an athlete, but this book was below par. The only chapter that stood out was about her coaches, where s [...]

    The Inspiring Saina(feeling inspired!)It felt really good and inspiring after reading two books (Playing to win and Saina Nehwal: An Inspirational Biography) written on the youth icon, Saina Nehwal. One can take a lot of inspiration from herd yes, of course the inspiration is not only in terms of the game but also in terms of hard work, dedication and staying focused. After reading these books, one realizes that the name and fame comes only after great efforts and tremendous hard work. From thes [...]

    The Iron Lady of India certainly speaks about discipline & focus in her autobiography. “I am working hard and performances are coming. Now that I am number 2, I will definitely reach number 1.” With this attitude she inspires the sportsman in the readers.

    Good.Not a recommended one.I mean the way she projected is not interesting and not a page turner.And i accepting that she is a successful player and inspirational women.

    Quite Inspiring and very very heart touchingI think stories like this can inspire millions of Indians to perform well in the sports world .Its a wonderful book to read.Thanks

    An average autobiography More like an extended article on the life of Saina Nehwal by Saina Nehwal herself.
