After retirement , generally people relax. But, he has put the India into the different league on world map.

Brilliant journey of an almost fanatic non cricket sports star who has and is driving Indian badminton to the top. The narration unfortunately doesn't do justice to the man or the journey.

Nonetheless I would recommend reading this to get a glimpse of sheer grit and determination also called Gopi Chand.

Must Read

An inspirational account of the living prodigy. In spite of several set backs how he come back everytime for his dream. Description of bird battle is very realistic will give you goosebumps. Yes, he is one of a kind.

Like most of the Indians, I came to know about Gopichand after his infamous win in the All England 2001. I clearly remember watching the finals live and I can say that’s the first badminton match I watched completely.

He has all the traits of a hero. Being a sports icon from our state, I read about him often in the vernacular news papers but donot know much about his pre all England career until I read this book.

This book is so racy and very insightful. I thank the author, who himself being a for

Story of a true fighter..it inspires people of all walks of life. Badminton is just a bacdrop..Gopichand would have excelled equally in any chosen field..thanks to his determination.
