It's a beginning
on 5 January 2012
I cannot deny that this was an enjoyable read, with me being a Novak Djokovic fan and everything. It was definitely well researched and put together all those articles and comments on what is considered to be "the perfect season" of Novak. However, I wouldn't call it a "behind-the-scenes biography" because it is simply misleading to call this eBook so. While it provided an insight on how four-year old Novak became the 24 year-old world number one, it can only be considered a compilation of what Novak himself and other people have said in interviews and news articles.
Also there are a number of typing mistakes in here. At one instance, Andy Murray is referred to as Andy Muller. Though I agree that the book is about Novak Djokovic, I would have assumed that caution would have been taken to avoid important mistakes like these. At several places, the worlds were written together without any spaces in between and there were several punctuation/grammatical mistakes.
There were several links included in the text, to the original articles and videos which I thought was very thoughtful. However, I think I would have preferred it to be at the end of the `story' rather than within it because I was quite reluctant to access the link on my Kindle or unable to, in the case of youtube videos.
I'm giving this book a "3" because despite the above criticism, I really enjoyed it. It provided a recap of the best tennis memories of 2011 although it can be improved. It is only the beginning.
