4.0 out of 5 stars A very helpful book!
Reviewed in India 🇮🇳 on 28 April 2022
Book: Shuttler's Flick
Author: Pullela Gopichand with Priya Kumar
Genre: Autobiography/Motivation
Pages: 359
Rating: 4/5

To all the fans and followers of badminton and sports, Pullela Gopichand needs no introduction. A great player, a great coach, and a great personality, Gopichand is a hero for many. Being a follower of badminton myself, this book was such a delight to read. It is not like any other autobiography where the story of the personality goes on and not like any motivational book where there is only information and situations which helps to be motivated. This book is a perfect blend of both the genres, autobiography, and motivation.

At the start of each chapter, there is a general point of view and discussion type writing whose strings are attached to the life of Gopichand but will help everyone, it doesn't matter if they belong to the sports field or not. After it, Gopichand's story in his own words is there which is the highlight of the book that I liked and connected with the most. Then in some chapters are writing and the points of view of personalities related to Gopichand, like his parents and his students.

There are many life learning lessons there in the book, especially for students. As a student myself, I connected and find the answers to so many things in the book which honestly I was not expecting. I highlighted so many portions of this book, and it was all worth it. Although in the starting, the writing with which the chapters started looked a little preachy to me, as the book progressed and came into the middle, it changed. It became more practical, personal, and precise, which contained till the end and that I thoroughly enjoyed.

Also, the cover of the book is gorgeous and Mridu Agarwal has done a commendable job.

I will recommend this book not only to the fans of badminton and sports or the ones who want to know about Pullela Gopichand but to the students as well because there are so many things which can be learned and applied to daily life.

4.0 out of 5 stars Game of pure grit and perseverance
Reviewed in India 🇮🇳 on 21 May 2022
Growing up i learned about a sport mostly through one person, be it sachin for cricket, usha for track and field, anand for chess and pullela gopichand for badminton. These were all the champions who proved their mettle time and again in respective fields eventually becoming the sport itself. It's hard to imagine them apart from the sport, so were the accolades they gained for the sport and for the country in international forums.

Shuttler's flick by Pullela gopichand with priya kumar is an account of gopi's badminton journey, being a child with keen interest in sport to the world champion we all know and the coach he is today, training and guiding the present and future badminton champions of India.

Gopi's is a journey of pure grit and perseverance. Through this account we get to know what goes into becoming a Champion, it's not always the best of the resources that makes one a champion but it's raw talent, consistency and right mindset. Gopi mastered the art of taking control of the game and opponent's mindset, eventually leading the opponent to play his game and lose to his tricks. Sports are not always won on hard work but also through right mindset.

Knowing self is one thing and taking actions accordingly is another thing. Many a times we tend to overestimate ourselves, tend to live in illusions and when reality knocks us down, it'll be a while to get back on feet which costs us heavily in the long run. Gopi always knew himself, so he planned his intense training and stuck to it day after day which he now teaches in his academy.

There are very few in every field who redefines the space and creates new benchmark for the generations to come and pullela gopichand is one such person whose legacy be talked forever in the sports fraternity.
