Publisher's Summary

It took just four years for Mahendra Singh Dhoni to transform from a boy from an obscure small town into an icon of Indian sports. The events that made up that tale turned into one of the greatest feel-good stories of recent times, and I felt it needed to be told.

Dhoni is arguably the most radical and influential Indian cricketer since the emergence of Kapil Dev in the late '70s. The positive impact he has had on Indian cricket - and on aspiring youth - is the modern-day version of a fairy tale come true. Since he received no formal training during his formative years, Dhoni's rough-and-ready ways were never ironed out of his system. There lies his appeal, and that is what pulls in the crowds. Here is a leader - India's captain in one-day internationals (ODIs) and Twenty20 since 2007 and in a Test in 2008 - who makes bold decisions and carries them forward. The fact that the results have in the main turned out to be positive is no mere stroke of luck. Like Kapil Dev a quarter of a century earlier, Dhoni is instinctive, going by his gut feeling. No wonder he was the prize catch when it came to the Indian Premier League (IPL) auction. And leading the Chennai Super Kings to the final of the inaugural event added another arrow to his quiver. Dhoni today is on top of the world. This is his inspiring story.
