Usain Bolt: My Autobiography I enjoyed reading this autobiography by Jamaican athlete and Olympic champion Usain Bolt. His success has been achieved through good coaching and his own hard efforts. He talks about his injuries and underlying medical condition Scoliosis which has plagued him over the years, but which has never held him back from being the fastest man in the world. A good read and a very interesting man. The book includes an appendix on his personal bests and world records. Published by Harper Sport in 2013 290 pages with colour photographs.
I didn't like the beginning but the book is really good and ... I didn't like the beginning but the book is really good and shows Usain's attitude as a champion ! I didn't think he is such a smart and down to earth type of guy. He is very mature and his success is not just luck or talent, but A LOT of hard work !
