“He is easily the most successful of modern spin bowlers, a brilliant middle order batsman, and preeminent among gully fieldsmen.  He is also Australia’s match-winning captain, and an imaginative, attacking leader.
But Benaud is more than just a successful cricketer.  He is a fully trained and qualified journalist, who has sought to climb the ladder in his profession via the tough everyday reporting school in his hometown of Sydney, and not through the back door, trading on his name.   Benaud is not ghostly figure, either on the field or off it.  He is as large as life, as his first book, Richie Benaud’s Way of Cricket, reveals – a book in the true spirit of the game, devoid of modern sensationalism and axe-grinding.”
