Mo Farah This timely biography of Olympic champion, Mo Farah, gives an overview of his career to date, and a detailed account of his upbringing and early interest in athletics. It tells how his family left Somalia because of the civil war, settling in London when he was just a small boy, and having to start school with no knowledge of English. It discusses the long years of training and preparation that laid the foundation for his spectacular victories at the Olympics, the inspiration he took from his religion and from successive teachers, coaches and mentors. It is a well-produced information book which uses a variety of texts and direct quotation, and a wealth of photographs from the different stages of its subject's career.
