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.
