Bowers' analysis lacks depth on why Nadal has been such a nemesis to Federer. It does not go into what is it about Nadal's game and character that makes him have such an impressive record against Federer.
The book is sloppy, with the facts, in some places. It states that Federer beat Del Potro in the round robin stage of the 2009 ATP Masters in London. This is a mistake as the result was the other way round. It also mentions that Roddick did not come close to breaking Federer in the fifth set at Wimbledon 2009. This is a howler as Federer was down 15-40 when serving at 8-8 in the fifth set and saved the two break points with a wonderful serve and a superb drive volley under the most extreme pressure. This was one of the most important turning points in the match.
The book is worth reading if you are a die-hard Federer fan as it does cover some additional ground from his previous book. Hence the three star rating.
I enjoyed the parts where the author talks about his life - that kept me reading!
