A really good read,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: My Story (Hardcover)
Lovely book. A bit heavy at first on the more technical bits of diving, but it opens up into a revealing story of the effort that Tom has had to put in, and the brightness of his personality, how normal a boy he was, and the pride which his very close family have in him and all their children. The closeness of his bond with his dad is apparent all the way through, and the emotional drain which being a young athlete has is highlighted.
What is also apparent is how random it is to win in this sport, surely one of the most difficult because of its subjective marking.
The overall impression is just what a normal person Tom is, and what a good person he is too. Worth every penny.
