He walked, talked and led like a tiger. He went down as quietly as he led his life throughout.
would give 3.5/5.

The book must be read by this generation of readers to understand why a middling batsman who consistently failed in West Indies and who won merely two series as captain (against New Zealand,of all countries) was celebrated as a superstar captain who bookmarked a significant era in Indian cricket. The most succinct tribute in this collection of essays is by Mike Brearley who beautifully sums up what Tiger means to Indian cricket.

A very well edited book by Suresh. All those people who were part of Tiger's life or shared moments have contributed to this book. Wonderfully sequenced.

Would have worked better had it been a biography similar to the author's book about bedi.
