Faster Than Lightning: My Autobiography
the track were matched by his personal victory of overcoming scoliosis – a spinal condition that could have ended his career before it had got out of the starting blocks. There are many other poignant moments throughout the book, covered with equal pathos.
Faster Than Lightning also gives an insight into what makes Bolt as fast as he is, looking at his running style as a result of his stature and also the mental preparations he undertakes – he runs first for himself, then his country.
This book is a must-read for those with an interest in one of sport’s most engaging personalities.
