Lot of things came together to make it so that as Ganguly started his career I also started watching regular cricket and I would forever be grateful for his contribution towards transforming the Indian Cricket Team and giving some many wonderful performances, and I was even able to see his century live in Gwalior with my Mom and brother. Well so of course I had to get the book when I saw this so I got it and I read it. It was a nice read and unlike others I didn't feel that the book was written poorly but it was written nicely enough. Like the recent autobiographies from Indian cricketers this one is also on the leaner end with only about 260 pages. As you all my might have noticed already I now tend to shuffle between multiple books and also what with being busy with photography it took me a little longer to finish than it should have.

Coming to the book the tone of the book I agree is preachy with Dada directly talking to young cricketers and normal chums like me or you "Life Lessons" as he liked to call them. As I said that lot of things came together to make it so that I have seen most of the matches or least kept track of them and it was easy as just like it to bring back the memories of the matches or innings mentioned in the book.

So in the end don't let the positive reviews sway you nor let the negative reviews scare you away from this book, give it a chance and see for yourself if you like this life story or not, in any case read this or not just remember to Keep on Reading.
