I was surprised and please with the fact that this book isn't about Usain's career but about his personal life. It talks about his childhood and how he was raised humbly. Great book.

You don't know whether to like him or not .....he is certainly comes across as arrogant and shallow, and his autobiography does nothing to dispel that impression. That being said, it is interesting to read about his humble beginnings and his early family life in Jamaica. Also, about the process of becoming a world class elite level athlete almost entirely through talent alone. Only a sprinter could manage to get by on raw talent for as long as Bolt does! (This is definitely not the story of a distance runner!). The book is an interesting insight into the life of an elite level athlete, and the accompanying physical and mental challenges.
