By using a mixture of autobiography, surfing tips, interviews and philosophy, Mick, with his co-writer Tim Baker, have written an awesome account that is weaved together in such a way as to make the overall impact of the book greater than the sum of its parts.
Compared to fellow Aussie champion Mark Occhilupo, who has had his fair share of ups and downs, Mick's attitude to adversity is much more scientific and focused. Whereas Occy's troubles tended to last for longer periods, Mick's ability to analyse situations and be more pro-active in his efforts to understand what is going wrong and how to fix it, has meant that he has been able to move on at a faster pace - examples are the use of sports psychologists and taking up the CHEK training regime.
His love of the Ocean and family support (like Occy) is certainly a key part of his success. But beyond that, Fanning's determined attitude and team ethos have proved crucial in an epic journey from the pits of despair to ultimate sporting glory.
