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.

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.
