FIT TO PRINT: The top athlete's sophomore book scores good reviews.
"A profile in courage, grit, confidence, hard work and fun, the vivid account of [Bolt's] life, as depicted in his autobiography, is really fascinating and inspirational. He has put the events of his life very straight-forward and unambiguously and, at the same time, maintaining a degree of honesty and, to a great extent, uncontroversially. The book is a must-read not only for budding sportspersons but also for every individual who aspires to excel in life." -- Souvik Khamrui (New Delhi, India)
"I would recommend this as a well-written autobiography. I feel I know a lot more about this unique man and his unusual life. Although I would say I don't feel I have all the facts, just the ones he wanted to share with the public. But, in a sense, he made up for this by not showing off and blowing his own trumpet like so many people in his situation could and would do." -- Chris Daniels (New York, United States)
"In my opinion, the book does not represent a motivational story about a man's hard slog to the summit of success. It is not the story of discipline and determination that takes a person through turbulent days. Rather, Faster Than Lightning is the story of an immensely gifted man who has realized his potential by making a few right decisions and listening to a few good people. And that, I think, is the ultimate take-away message." -- Vijay Dorai, The Star Online
"What a delightful read! I've always been a huge fan, much to the chagrin of my hubby, who is adamant [Bolt is] too good to be achieving what [he has] without some help from banned substances. I, of course, always rise to [his] defence all the time. I pray that what [he] has written in this book is completely honest. [He's] a remarkable young man, and I wish [him] everything of the best in Brazil in 2016. Pity I will not get to see [him] run in this lifetime, but I will be cheering from afar." -- Sharon Reuben (Johannesburg, South Africa)
