This revised and updated edition brings the shooter s life up to date and adds to the book his experience at the London Olympics in 2012.

Abhinav Bindra's journey to becoming the first Indian to win an individual Olympic gold, and the first Indian to win a world championship gold. It is a triumph born of a tragedy. Having driven himself to become a great shooter, he was poised to win gold at the Athens Olympics in 2004. But defeated by a freak occurrence, he changed as a shooter: from a boy who loved shooting, he became an athlete bent on redemption, becoming a scientist who would try anything, including mapping his own brain, to win in Beijing.

His victory was a triumph of hard work, of ingenuity, of stubborness and a quest for perfection. His story is about one man s search for excellence and his refusal to demand anything less than the best of himself. It is also the story of managing great success, about learning to lose and about trying to win again.

This book was added to South Asia bookstore on Thursday 12 September, 2013.
