“Here is Sir Don’s own book – genuine; unassuming; and yet carrying in every line, the authority of the greatest cricketer the world has ever seen.
Here is the whole personal story from his childhood in Australia to his last triumphant season in England.
Here, too, is the most interesting book reference in existence, on the past, present and future of the game.
It is full of characters every player and lover of cricket wants to meet – on and off the field.
There is a chapter on captaincy that many will find the finest in the entire book.
There are twenty-seven photographs and every one has been specially selected by Sir Donald himself.”
