The book is gripping for anyone with an inquiring, open mind. It has a great balance of insight into the miracle and simplicity of self healing and a unique insight into professional tennis. It is clearly written. It is not loaded with unnecessary medical jargon or unsubstantiated facts. He doesn't claim to be a nutritionist or doctor. He just learnt to listen with an open mind and heart.
"When you get to the end of all the light you know, and it's time to step into the darkness of the unknown, faith is knowing that one of two things shall happen: either you will be given something solid to stand on, or you will be taught how to fly.
Everything Novak writes about makes absolute sense to me. It addresses so many levels of life that isn't typically generic and fearful. I am just surprised that it has taken this long for some one of his calibre to take advantage of what has been there all along. It's a wonderful irony that as he achieved financial success where he could afford the most expensive allopathic medical doctors opinions he found the answers for free.
I am sure in a way Novak is appreciative of his hardships. Without them he would never have pushed to discovered his full potential.
I admire Novak for speaking out against the norm. It takes a special kind of person to be this aware, to walk the talk and not be a sheep who just follows.
I just wish he had written about the importance of fresh water. Most tap water contains, chlorides and other very harmful chemicals. One should always try filter tap water.
Water bottled in plastic contains harmful chemicals from the plastic. One should try to only drink from glass bottled water.
I am a 51 year old South African male ( tennis nut ) I am busy with an alternative treatment to cure cancer (Lymphoma) that is organic food based. It's called the Gerson therapy [...] I have done this therapy for 3 years now. After 2 years my bloods were totally normal. I have no traces of cancer. I am healthier and happier than I have ever been. For these reasons this book makes so much sense to me.
Like Novak I learned to listen to my body.
I find his story quite interesting. How he became #1 in the 2011 ATP rakings, won Grand Slam tournaments, etc., after he changed his diet because he found out about his mild sensitivity to tomatoes and wheat and dairy intolerance.
In this book, along with his story and plenty of information about his diet and where the gluten hides come topics as meditation, friendship, rest and training. Also, something that I want to give it a try: foam rollers for a massage.
A seven days sample of his diet and recipes developed by Chef Candice Kumai are explained in the book, but as he said “his diet is always evolving” so it can change any time.
It’s an easy reading and as a fan I’m pleased I bought it. I just took what works for me.
Ivan Lendl and Martina Navratilova were the ones who brought fittnees as part of the tennis professionalism in the late 80's early 90's, which revolutionize the tennis world, and Novak Djokovic is the one who's bringing nutrition as part of not only tennis profesionalisms but to the every day life. This book reflects the personal lack of awareness to our own bodies, and it is so true, what he is saying about the intolerance to certain foods. I have been suffering form skin allergic reactions and every doctor that I went, and every test they did, they could not find the reason of my allergies. for the past 4 weeks I have been eating a gluten free diets and all my allergies, bloating, acid reflux, and permanent fatigue are gone.
thanks Novak for showing that sometimes western medicine has not all the answers to our illnesses. keep on inspiring people around the world.

Unfortunately, I was expecting his book to be a little more forthcoming and extensive about his diet regimen rather than the negative effects of gluten, dairy,etc. There are a few recipes but I guess I was expecting a little more variety or interesting tips onto how to cope with this change in lifestyle. I know it isn't a cookbook but I was hoping for some flair considering his personality. If you got rid of the biography I would have sincerely regretted buying this, I hope he does release a cookbook in the future.
