I think the book is okay. The book lacks detail. But one thing is for sure you got to learn a bit the Lee Chong Wei. His determination, his hardwork despite being mischievous at times. He learned it the hard way. He knows how to plan his future and he makes lots of money playing badminton. One thing that I also learned is his generosity. That is a champion material right there. The only thing is that, the book is not worth the price. Some grammatical mistakes here and there. But again, this is a ...more
a motivative book..I read both Mandarin and English version. Although I'm Chinese and this book is originally written in Mandarin, I think the English version is better because some sentences really moved me. Whereas the Mandarin version, i would just say it is mediocre.
It teaches us that there is no way to approach success other than hard work. When you conquer your laziness, hesitation and self doubts, you are already a winner, in spite of how many time you experience failure on court.

I find it rather disappointing as I have higher expectations as this is supposed to be LCW's autobiography. Photos do speak a thousand words but I find some photos are simply placed. English-wise, simple English are used and not filtered thoroughly. But from this book, we can see how LCW persevere through hard times and never fails to come back as stronger as ever. And that is a true hero.

Minus the one racially insensitive reference to the Indian race, and the obvious fact that this book was not written by Lee Chong Wei himself, it was an average read. A few childhood stories and some personal beliefs add colour to this simplistic yet at times rather inspiring book. Not a book that you should rush to get off the shelves, however if you get it as a gift, it isn't too bad.
Overall a great book. Although its better to be read in Mandarin, due to the translation to English. Chong Wei did everything the hard way. No shortcuts. Great book. Never regret reading it.
I finished reading this book around 1 to 3 days, its a good book i think, i get to know very well about lee chong wei autobiography from the past to present. I guess it was quite good
