Chris Bowers had covered Federer's career up to Wimbledon 2007 in his first book: Fantastic Federer. I was hoping that this book would focus more on Federer's career and the events after Wimbledon 2007. I was disappointed as Bowers does not do this enough. The earlier chapters are repetitive for someone who has already read Fantastic Federer.
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 did not realise on purchase of this problem that Roger Federer had no involvement in this book he simply said that he would not stop anyone writing about his career. The book is very dull I really would have like to have read about Roger from Roger. I stopped reading a third of the way into the book.

I bought this book as I am a fan of Federer but I was disapointed as it is poorly written and edited More of an outsiders view with no real insight, most of the information could be found by spending some time at the library. Hopefully someone will be able to do this career justice in the future!

At times the book is enjoyable - but there are too many facts and figures which may be interesting to tennis players, but more of his life would have been a better read for a non statistical reader.
I enjoyed the parts where the author talks about his life - that kept me reading!
