The best book I've read on cricket! And I don't hope to read anything better than this in the rest of my life. Made me fall head over heels with the game of cricket and let me make it clear, falling all over again and again.. has it's own charm!

Highly recommended for anyone who loves this game.. Mind you, in love with game.. not with a country or a club or individual who plays it!

Ah! Bradman could see himself in Sachin Tendulkar. Lucky he! Why isn't there another Cardus, then or now? :(

A book that needs careful reading, to properly savour the incisive technical analysis, the deep rooted understanding of the game, and the empathetic support of the common fan's passion. The prose stands firmly in the realm of fine art. ...more
