'Gary Sobers is without peer in the history of cricket, the greatest all-rounder ever to have graced the game. A devastating batsman, he was also a bowler of world class in two styles and of Test class in yet a third, one of the most interesting captains in modern cricket, and a magnificent fielder both close to the wicket and in the deep.
Trevor Bailey's own career as an international cricketer was ending just as Sobers was making his name. He writes of Gary's life, both on and off the filed, with the understanding of a fellow all-rounder and as a personal friend of over twenty years. his portrait is authoritative, always interesting, and rightly generous. It reveals, as he says, a remarkable man - someone without meanness or malice.'
