“A. P. E. Chapman said that Learie Constantine was “the fastest bowler on the world”.  He has been called “a harder hitter than Gilbert Jessop”.  His fielding earned him the nickname of “The Black Catapult”.
IN England, Australia, the West Indies and India, he has provided hundreds of thrills, saved “lost” games and turned the tide in Tests.  Always a centre of discussion, he writes as forcefully as he bowls and bats.
He speaks out openly on violent cricket controversies and takes the reader behind the scenes to see what happens in pavilion, club-room or hotel, where the real sensations occur.”
