Product description

Book Description

The autobiography of the highest scoring batsman of all time.

About the Author

Born in Mumbai, Sachin Tendulkar made his Test debut in Pakistan at the age of 16 in 1989. One of the most gifted and entertaining batsmen to have played international cricket, he scored more runs and made more centuries than any other player in history - in both Tests and ODIs. He made his first Test century at the age of 17, at the age of 36 he became the first player to make a one-day double century and in 2012 he scored his 100th international hundred. With India he won the World Cup in 2011 and reached the top of the world Test rankings in the same year. In 2013, he retired from cricket after playing his 200th and final Test in front of his home crowd in Mumbai. The book is Sachin's own words as told to his Co-writer Boria Majumdar who worked closely with Sachin.

Let me make it clear that I consider myself the greatest Sachin fan alive. However I shall try to be fair in my review.

The first 100 or so pages that described Sachin's childhood formed the best part of the book. You would laugh, smile, get astonished and surprised ("Sachin used to do this to?" ...you would think). You will find that Sachin was, in most ways, the same cricket loving kid you were and will be able to relate to many of his mischief,ideas and thoughts.

However the fun ends along with those chapters. The rest of the book is a like a commentary of his matches. Almost all the matches have been included. It will refresh your memories of Sachin's batting, and you will relive some of the matches you might have forgotten.
However for a Sachin fan who would have certainly followed most of his career and would have all of his matches strong in his memory, this is provides little comfort. You expect more from Sachin than just summary of his matches.

Like most of the books on Sachin, this one too misses out on some of his iconic ODI innings. The 200 against SA is just brushed upon in commentary. The 175 VS Australia is not even mentioned. Focus is more on tests and less on ODIs.

I bought an edition with some great personal photographs of Sachin.

The book also does provide some dressing room gossips that Indian general fan always looks forward to, but in just the subtle amount. Strong views on Chappel, the 194 declaration by Dravid, some of his ideals and some surprising cricketers Sachin respects... all of these provide little treats to the reader.

While some might skim through pages, this book provides some great insight as to how Sachin used to prepare against some bowlers. How he used to adjust during difficult times.

I must begin by stating I am a massive fan and have defended him umpteen times in front of family and friends throughout his career, and indeed, after.

However, this book is pretty indefensible. It reads as a very dry, matter-of-fact summary of Sachin's matches, with emphasis on his Test games. Eminently passable, does not add anything further to what the average Sachin fan already knows, except maybe the true extent of the many injuries suffered by Sachin towards the latter part of his career.

To read Sachin Tendulkar's autobiography, I had switched off all my online activities, Whatsapp and every source of entertainment and disturbance. I wanted to read the book in silence and feel the emotions of the man whom we often refer as GOD because of the good and great qualities he possesses. It took me 4 evenings to complete this book and every day during office hours, I used to think of what he would have written about the match he played in so-and-so series. And the same evening, I used to read it and enjoy the details shared by Sachin. After completing his book some 2 hours ago, I have cried like anything reading about how he described his life post-announcement of retirement, his last two test matches and his reaction to everybody's love and respect towards him. But I didn't start writing it immediately after my emotional outburst because I wanted to review it just like any other book and not as one of my favorites even before I started reading it. :-)

Playing It My Way- the title itself tells us that Sachin must have written all about how he felt the Cricket should be played. And he describes it in the same manner. The book is also co-authored by Boria Mazumdar, whom I met in an event named "Salaam Sachin" where he told me about the book in process and I couldn't believe him. The book is written in the simplest language for the Indian authors. Nothing have been done to impress the Englishmen out there sitting to thrash anything done by Living Indian Legends. Sachin have mostly talked about how his life on the field and ground was. And it is quite expected from the guy who have never been in controversies that he'll not disclose anything just like that to get extra points.

Great read... If u r an avid cricket fan then u can relate to the tournaments Sachin mentions... If u don't follow cricket closely u will still enjoy learning about the game. We often feel that Sachin is an effortless player but this book shows the immense hardwork he has put in and how consciously Sachin tries to be grounded

It was an honour to read the story of Sachin Tendulkar...i was pretty excited when i started reading the book...
The book is overall good...but it feels like going through all the matches that tendulkar has played in his lifetime..
Its not waste of money...coz even a big sachin fan can miss out few things about sachin...while the book has lot of it...but the book doesn't actually inspires one..it gives the insight of sachin's life...
Still being a sachin fan i would always say....i loved the book...

The pic of the book cover that was shown by Amazon at the time of purchase is not same that I have received.
However there is no difference in the book's content. Received this product a day before as expected. Nice printing. Paper quality is good as well. No problems at all. Satisfied with the packaging and delivery by Amazon.
