This is not a scorebook, nor is it an accumulation of facts or the extension of a globally recognised brand. This is the first in-depth and comprehensive biography of Sachin Tendulkar, and it puts Sachin, the cricketer and the human being, in perspective.

Most of the facts and stories about Sachin in the book would already be known to his fans, but reading the book refreshes the memory and lets one relive those moments of joy and torment. Somebody who has not watched cricket during the 90s and early 2000s or is not a fan of Sachin, is unlikely to find the book interesting.

So read the book if you fall into either of the above categories.

Sympathetic portrait of Sachin Tendulkar - boy, the man, the legend. A lot of ground had been covered by the first biographer, Gulu Ezekiel, but Purandare's stamps his own book with authority, sensitivity and credibility. A must read for cricket fans.
