About The Book Rafa: My Story written by Rafael Nadal and John Carlin is an astonishing account through the eyes of the elite tennis player. This autobiography, serves up a smashing report of his life - on and off the court. It provides revealing insights about a supreme athlete known for his reticence and modesty. Born in Mallorca, a tiny island off the coast of Spain, is where he returns to rejuvenate his mind and body after gruelling tennis seasons the year around. What's revealed here, however, is a much more complex figure susceptible to all kinds of anxieties and an individual who without the love and support of his family, would not be the athlete he is today. All this has contributed to the phenom becoming the youngest competitor ever to complete a career Grand Slam - just at the age of 24. Yet we learn, the greatest adversary in Nadal's life, has not been Novak Djokovic or Roger Federer, or any of the other menacing opponents he has had to confront on the opposite side of the net. Moreover, it has been his beloved uncle, Toni - a sharp, pugnacious man who has been by his side as his coach since Nadal was four years old. The compelling tale volleys back and forth in first and third person narrative, constantly building momentum and adding insight into the depth of his battles. For instance, the 2008 Wimbledon final between Nadal and Federer is played out shot by shot over several riveting chapters. This autobiography provides readers with an over-the-shoulder invitation into the thought process of one the greatest tennis players in the world. A winning endeavor bound with intellect and elation, Rafa: My Story brings readers on to his triumphant, yet dramatic journey. It was published on 10 June, 2012 and is available in paperback.

Rafa: My Story is a terrific sporting memoir, full of memorable anecdotes and stamped with the authority of a ghostwriter who earned the complete trust of his subject. It is hard to imagine how Nadal could have done any more to get the best out of his own raw material. And it is to Carlin's enourmous credit that the book is a true reflection of the man, in every sense -- Ed Smith New Statesman Between them they have served up a winner -- Simon Redfern Independent Take a glimpse behind the curtain of both his private and professional life - it's as exciting as Rafa himself Woman's Own
