‘I have been fortunate to see many of Sindhu’s stellar performances, from Rio to Glasgow to Gold Coast and Jakarta. Seldom has an Indian sportsperson achieved so much, including four World Championship medals besides those at Olympics, Asian Games and Commonwealth Games, in so short a time. With age on her side, the sky is the limit for this talented and yet grounded badminton star,’ says author V. Krishnaswamy, whose past work, 'Sachin Tendulkar, A Hundred Hundreds Now', was a runaway success and translated in multiple languages. ‘It has been a pleasure to not only see Sindhu play, but also interact with her over the past few years. This book is my small tribute to a shining star.’

The young sports icon is the only Indian named in Forbes’ list of the world’s top-10 highest-paid female athletes. Ananya Borgohain, Commissioning Editor at HarperCollins, said, ‘More than just a biography, this inspiring book delves into what makes a world champion, how she handles her famous rivals like Saina Nehwal and Carolina Marin, and how Prakash Padukone and Pullela Gopichand’s hardships resulted in changing the Indian badminton landscape forever. After all, at just 24, Sindhu is a Padma Bhushan awardee!’
