Collectabillia, along with Random House, is offering fans an opportunity to own the first 20 autographed copies long before the book hits the stands. Bids open at Rs.5,000.

The limited edition books will also include a handwritten letter by the Arjuna Awardee and proceeds raised from the week-long auction will be donated to the YouWeCan Foundation.

Sharing an insight on the book, Yuvraj said, "I have always believed in fighting hard, and not giving up and through this book, I hope to encourage the thousands of others, who are facing similar challenges, to not give up. I also want them to know they are not alone in their fight."
