Book Review: The Test Of My Life

The Test of My LifeThe Test of My Life by Yuvraj Singh
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The book offers a glimpse into the journey of a top class sportsman and the ordeals faced with injuries/illness. The authors provide an insight into the ambitions, highs and lows in the life of Yuvraj Singh. The problem with the book is there is way too much description of particular cricket matches which gets redundant at times for someone watched that matches.

What holds this book together is though the way Yuvraj describes his killer instinct to fight cancer, the details around chemo treatment, the importance of having friends and family in one's life stressing that work is not everything and one should have people around who would stand by then through thick and thin. The authors further go on to explain the processes and pains associated with chemotherapy. The heart here is in the right place. Yuvraj did a good job stressing the fact that cancer can be overcome and the way he fought through all of those and came back to play for India again shows that it is doable.

The other thing that Yuvraj stresses is his ignorance of the cancerous symptoms while playing for the much coveted World Cup 2011 showing his resolve to achieve his aims and put his life on the line for it. This on one hand stresses what it meant to Yuvraj to get the cup for India at the same time these chapters also introduce the what symptoms for cancer and that it is important to prioritise one's health against all his ambitions.

An extra star for the intent behind the book!
