It's amazing to get to know the thoughts of people who are not just the best but at the very top. But what struck me was to know that he is a quiet person and yet he managed to find that fierce aggression every time he bowled. He was never the fastest bowler in the world. He knew this when he started bowling. Yet he found a way to become the best fast bowler in the world. And how do you stay on top all the time? From being man of the match in the first test to taking a wicket on the last ball of his last international game, the journey is nothing short of a fairytale to read.
I believed this book would be written in the first person as the other Australian cricketers autobiography like pointing,gilchrist and Waugh. Unfortunately that wasn't the case, the whole book is written from a third person sense which left me a bit cheated. But after reading a few pages, I still enjoyed it and loved reading the career of McGrath. He faced lot of challenges which are written, his main cricketing achievements like his 100th test,series win vs India, winning the World Cup in 1999 are written as after thoughts but a lot of the portion of the book deals with the fact about th fight Jane had. That was a nice aspect and humnanized the cricketer in my eyes.
