About the book
That day I cried like a baby not because I feared what cancer would do but because Ididn't want the disease. I wanted my life to be normal, which it could not be.'For the first time Yuvraj Singh tells the real story behind the 2011 World Cup when on-the-fieldtriumph hid his increasingly puzzling health problems and worrying illnesses. In his debut bookThe test of my life, he reveals how-plagued with insomnia, coughing fits that left him vomitingblood, and an inability to eat-he made a deal with God. On the night before the 2011 ICC CricketWorld Cup final, Yuvraj prayed for the World Cup in return for anything God wanted.In this book, he lays bare his fears, doubts, and the lows he experienced during chemotherapy-when he lost his energy, his appetite, and his hair-and his battle to find the will to survive. Poignant,personal, and moving-The test of my life-is about cancer and cricket; but more importantly, it isabout the human will to fight adversity and triumph despite all odds.

I was to touched by the story and knowing that this happy go lucky chap had to go through so much pain. My heart wept for him and his pain. He loved to enjoy life and Cancer was a big nightmare in his life. I just wish no one ever has to go through this pain and agony. Keep it up Yuvraj.. Hats Off To you.
Though Yuvraj is a cricketer he has proved everyone is born with multiple talents. He has very nicely divided the book. He first wrote about the world cup 2011 and how they won then the day when he was diagnosed with cancer and life after that and then back to the cricket life after getting cured. Awesome book.
Thank You Infibeam for delivering the book well in time and in too good condition. The book is worth read. All cricket fans must read it and you come to know how hard our crickets work to win a single game...
Yuvraj Singh is a blessing to the Indian Cricket team. His love and craze for the game and the desire to win it. He infact did his best to to win the World Cup. But when this lad was told he has cancer and how heart broken he was, what pain he had to go through and what fears he had in mind is all written so well that for a moment i had tears in my eyes while reading the book. I am touched and feel proud we have Yuvraj in our Indian Cricket Team.
Yuvraj has got the guts to play cricket in the worst of situation and he has also given India victory many times in these situations too. He believes to fight out the hardest of situation and he did not forget this when he was detected with Cancer. He fought and came back with victory.
