This is the remarkable story of Rahul Dravid's extraordinary cricketing career that commenced in 1996.

It's like reading a news paper

It's not a biography by any angle, it's like reading newspaper next day of cricket match , who scored what and how... That's all.... Don't liked...

Gemstone

Although the book is a biography of the legends playing days, it details a lot of events. I expected a little more on reflection or comments from Rahul Dravid himself

Excellent compilation of Rahul's achievements!

The narration is fantastic.. Voice modulation (sometimes a bit unrealistic) gives variety into listening.. The chapters are organised nicely and it was definitely a gripping narrative!

Good Book

A nice book but the narration at times becomes weird when the narrator is trying to imitate different people giving their views on Dravid. The narrator also struggles to properly pronounce the names of some Indian cricketers and some Indian (hindi) words.

The Greatest Wall in Cricket

If a person already didnt know than he would by this book why Rahul is called the wall or Mr reliable. Ofcourse you get a different kind of high when you get to see games in which batsman such as Sachin and Brian get going. But giving yourself to what your team needs, really shows the quality of this not so much sung hero.

No mention of personal life of the legend

Everything is fine. But as a fan of this great gentleman, I would have loved to know more about his personal life along with his career.

Great book of greatest cricketer of the team

It’s very great book of the greatest cricket of the team, who served for nation with any personal agenda or goals
His goal was to steel or save for his team from the opponents
But it’s wasn’t entirely of his professional career we hope balance will come very soon

To many statistics and less emotions.

the narrator was good, but the story was all about Rahul's career and not much on his personal life which would tell us his secret on how to be a gentleman that he is.

Good book. Horrible narration.

I’m not sure what was was narrator’s thought process. It’s extremely frustrating and annoying. F
