Comments about Rafa:
Gives great insight into Rafa and all the hard work that has been required for him to get where he is to-day. I loved the book and I love watching him play tennis. He is a wonderful ambassador for the sport.
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
