About The Book

  • Autobiography of Usain Bolt
  • Covers his journey from playing cricket and soccer as a kid to becoming the fastest man alive
  • Well-illustrated 

Years before he set world records for the 100-meter and 200-meter sprints, which made him the fastest man alive and famous, Usain Bolt was a fairly scrawny kid from Trelawny in Jamaica. In this autobiography, Bolt himself shares how, as he grew up and played cricket and soccer, he— and others—learned he could run fast. Very, very fast. 

Usain Bolt’s journey from a kid with humble beginnings to an Olympic gold medal winner is an inspiring and encouraging story. This beautifully illustrated autobiography shares that story from Bolt’s perspective. It is a celebration of someone who was inspired by other athletes around the world, someone who worked for years to become the best at his sport. Bolt shares stories of the sacrifices he made, the influence of Cristiano Ronaldo, the power of soccer and dancehall music, and his signature lightning bolt move.
