Novak Djokovic Serve to Win Book Review

Who expects a book full of information about Novak Djokovic tennis history and life will be disappointed. This book will not give you the exhausting history of Novak Djokovic. Novak Djokovic Serve to Win is more about the way he eats and thinks.

I would say this book is more about the diet and kitchen than about the tennis. It is about how Novak Djokovic found out he has food problems with gluten and lactose and how he solved it.

Instead of giving you a recollection of his youth, tennis career, success and fails, you will get an inside look into his eating and training habits. So do not expect to find a trick on how to improve your forehand or backhand. In contrary, you will find a lot about how to listen to your body, a lot about the different kinds of foods, the problems with gluten and pharmacy.

If you would like to know how to change your habits, how to improve your meditation skills, how to tweak your practice a little bit, then this book will be for you. Novak Djokovic gives you a recipe how to approach and how to change the way you eat and practice. And believe me, it is a pretty valuable insight from a man who was number one and was able to return to that position after injuries.

On top of the book, you will get plenty of cooking recipes for gluten-free and lactose-free meals. And not just plain recipes, but you get a weekly menu for anyone who wants to start with gluten-free and lactose-free diet.

I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for some motivation to change his eating habits and needs to push a little bit. Novak Djokovic patiently but persuasively explains why this change helps him and why it can also help to you.
