“Australia’s Test captains – an aura about these men has brought them prestige extending far beyond deeds that won them fame on the cricket field.  Here for the first time is the in-depth story of all 34 Australian Test captains from pioneer skipper ‘handsome Dave’ Gregory in 1877 to Ian Chappell in the 1970s.  Celebrated cricket writer Ray Robinson brings readers a succession of fascinating sportsmen on and off the field.  In close-up studies of them as personalities, Robinson tells of churchgoers and gamblers, teetotallers, and vegetarians, not only those who scored the most runs and won the most tests but those who made the most money and had the most children.”
