Usain Bolt- faster than lightening

By: The man himself
Location: 920 BOL
Genre: The story behind the speed.
The autobiography of the fastest man of all time and a superstar whose talent and charisma have made him one of the most famous people on the planet.
In this, his full autobiography, Usain tells his story in his own words: from humble beginnings in Jamaica, to international stardom at Beijing and on to the new heights of superstardom he has reached since lighting up London 2012.  He nearly was a cricket player- can you imagine how fast he would be able to toss a ball down the wicket.
Did you know his first prize incentive was for a packed lunch? His next was quite selflessly to earn enough money to buy his mother a washing machine and his dad a new car.
Full of the charm and charisma that has made him the most popular sporting figure of our time and a universal celebrity, this is a book that Usain’s millions of fans will love.
And in case you don't know why he is famous...
