Book Review #181 - My Story by Tom Daley

My Story

Enter the enthralling world of Olympian Tom Daley.

Tom had hearts in mouths when he dived at the 2010 Commonwealth Games, where he won two gold medals. He is one of Britain's gleaming hopes for gold at the London 2012 Olympics. But there is also a heartbreaking and inspiring story of a young athlete coping with the death of his father whilst under the glare of the world's media spotlight.

In this, Tom's first official memoir, he offers unprecedented access to the pressures, challenges and fascinating experiences of a world-class Olympian. From his day-to-day schedule, to his hobbies and family life, to sharing his hopes and dreams in the build up to the London Olympics, this book offers a unique chance to get close to Tom. Featuring exclusive photography and published simultaneously as a hardback and enhanced e-book, this will be the ultimate book for the 2012 Olympics.
My Rating: 5/5
I read this book very quickly, in fact it only just arrived in the mail a few hours ago. It was very easy to read, and really fast paced. I never got bored which is rare with non-fiction.
The only thing I was unsure about with this book was the fact that it was the autobiography of a 18 year old. Yet, the writing was mature and I found that I could relate to it.
The quality of the book is really good as well, it has glossy pages and alot of pictures.
This book was really inspirational and the best autobiography I have read for a while.
