12 Books - Day 12

In honor of the traditional Holiday song, the 12 Days of Christmas, we will celebrate books with 12 Books in 12 Days. Titles were recommended by school librarians throughout the country on the AASL Forum, best seller lists, best books of the year lists, and professional book reviews. As our 12 days rush by, we hope you find something worth reading as a holiday treat for yourself.

For the Twelfth Book of Christmas, a Good Friend Gave to Me: The Master: The Long Run, and Beautiful Game of Roger Federer by Christopher Clarey

There have been other biographies of Roger Federer, but never one with this kind of access to the man himself, his support team, and the most prominent figures in the game, including such rivals as Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, and Andy Roddick. In The Master, New York Times correspondent Christopher Clarey sits down with Federer and those closest to him to tell the story of the greatest player in men's tennis. Roger Federer has often made it look astonishingly easy through the decades: carving backhands, gliding to forehands, leaping for overheads and, in his most gravity-defying act, remaining high on a  pedestal in a world of sports rightfully flooded with cynicism. But his path from temperamental, bleach-blond teenager with dubious style sense to one of the greatest, most self-possessed and elegant of competitors has been a long-running act of will, not destiny. He not only had a great gift. He had grit. Christopher Clarey, one of the top international sports writers working today, has covered Federer since the beginning of his professional career. Here, Clarey focuses on the pivotal people, places, and moments in Federer's long and rich career: reporting from South Africa, South America, the Middle East, four Grand Slam tournaments, and Federer's native Switzerland. It has been a journey like no other player's, rife with victories and a few crushing defeats, one that has redefined enduring excellence and made Federer a sentimental favorite worldwide. - from Barnes and Noble
