This book is the only autobiography on this list. Sitting alone, idle and lonely on your couch, get a copy of The Test of My Life because as one of the appraisals for the book on its back cover says, it is 'pure inspiration'.

It is the story of a 29-year old man at the peak of his career, who dared to tempt fate by asking it to take away anything from him for the World Cup. It is the story of man who found himself alone, isolated and depressed, in a chilling street in Indianapolis and cried himself to sleep every night, four months after he was on the top of the world.

Reading this staggering tale of Yuvraj Singh's lion-hearted comeback and you will realize that there is more to life than cricket, which is eerily the most important lesson we need to take away from these times. You will laugh, you will cry, you will nostalgize, and finish this book with an invigorated smile on your face, before coming back later for more.

There is no better book to read if you're a Yuvi fan.
