Format: Hardcover
This book had some interesting content and details, but overall it was a disappointment since it really isn't packaged well. The type-face was huge and kind of juvenile and it looked as though the publishers were struggling to get to 250 pages in the book. The paper was also kind of cheap. In general it was just not a quality book. I've read both Fantastic Federer and the Roger Federer Story: Quest for Perfection and I would definitely recommend the Roger Federer Story for better content and quality!

This is a Bio of the World Number One Tennis Star from Switzerland. I have kept up with all his tournaments and love to watch him. The book is excellent and tells a lot about his early life.I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in Tennis. Thanks Amazon for having it!

Format: Paperback
I got this book for my birthday (the new one wasn't out yet) and i assumed from the reviews that it wasn't going to be very good. But I was happy to find out that the book was not cheaply made, the pages weren't too thin, and the type wasn't over-sized. I'll admit that I love everything and anything to do with Roger Federer but, with as much objectvity as i'm capable of, I thought it was a fairly good book. I learned a lot of things about Roger's childhood and early junior career that I didn't know. Looking at him now it's hard to believe he lost SO much back then! It was almost hard for me to just READ about him losing! I still havn't read the new one but in the mean time i'll give this book a thumbs up.

Format: Paperback
I'm totally agaisnt biographies about sport personalities that are still at their prime (or even having the potential to achieve so much more, as it's the case with Federer!)

So, I do not reccomend this book.
