Format: Hardcover
It's a great book, though a bit premature. It's a bit strange making a biography of a tennis player who doesn't believe he's even reached his peak yet! Nevertheless it provides lots of information that isn't available anywhere on the web and answers almost any question anyone will have to ask about the great Roger. And very interesting information too. Buy it!

Format: Hardcover
This is a great book and an absorbing read. Bowers clearly knows his subject, and provides us with many unknown and interesting facts that shed light on the personality of this unique tennis champion. The descriptions of the games are particularty good and left this reader with the impression that he was listening to live commentaries! The first reviewer is wrong to say there are factual errors, having obviously based his opinion on an earlier, inaccurate synopsis on this page, which has since been corrected. In short: A highly recommended book for tennis lovers.

This is another enjoyable biog for tennis fans of this wonderful tennis player many call the Greatest of all Time. Federer is a very private person so don't expect intimate revelations. This is about the man you see in public and his astonishing ability on a tennis court.

Overall a Disappointment 30 May 2007
By M. Lacks - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book had some interesting content and details, but overall it was a disappointment since it really isn't packaged well. The type-face was huge and kind of juvenile and it looked as though the publishers were struggling to get to 250 pages in the book. The paper was also kind of cheap. In general it was just not a quality book. I've read both Fantastic Federer and the Roger Federer Story: Quest for Perfection and I would definitely recommend the Roger Federer Story for better content and quality!

Fantastic Federer 21 Dec 2007
By Mitzi L. Heim - Published on Amazon.com

This is a Bio of the World Number One Tennis Star from Switzerland. I have kept up with all his tournaments and love to watch him. The book is excellent and tells a lot about his early life.I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in Tennis. Thanks Amazon for having it!

Not as bad as the reviews say 13 Dec 2007
By M. Potasiak - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I got this book for my birthday (the new one wasn't out yet) and i assumed from the reviews that it wasn't going to be very good. But I was happy to find out that the book was not cheaply made, the pages weren't too thin, and the type wasn't over-sized. I'll admit that I love everything and anything to do with Roger Federer but, with as much objectvity as i'm capable of, I thought it was a fairly good book. I learned a lot of things about Roger's childhood and early junior career that I didn't know. Looking at him now it's hard to believe he lost SO much back then! It was almost hard for me to just READ about him losing! I still havn't read the new one but in the mean time i'll give this book a thumbs up.

No 3 Sep 2007
By Carmarthen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I'm totally agaisnt biographies about sport personalities that are still at their prime (or even having the potential to achieve so much more, as it's the case with Federer!)

So, I do not reccomend this book.
