Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of No Spin: My Autobiography by Shane Warne.

‘My story, without the spin.’

From the start of his glittering career in 1992 to his official retirement from all formats of the game in 2013, Shane Warne has long desired to tell his incredible story without compromise. No Spin is that very story. It offers a compelling intimate voice, true insight and a pitch-side seat to one of cricket’s finest eras, making this one of the ultimate must-have sports autobiographies.

Shane is not only one of the greatest living cricket legends: he is as close as the game has had since Botham to a maverick genius on the field and a true rebel spirit off it, who always gives audiences what they want. Despite being the talismanic thorn in England’s side for nearly two decades of regular Ashes defeats, he was also much loved in the UK, where he played cricket for Hampshire. He’s also a much-admired figure in India and South Africa. 

Alongside his mesmerising genius as a bowler, Shane has often been a controversial figure, and in this book he talks with brutal honesty about some of the most challenging times in his life as a player. Honest, thoughtful, fearless and loved by millions, Shane is always his own man, and this book is a testament to his brilliant career.

Superbly Honest and Entertaining

Shane Warne has always been my fav Aussie player and I had been following his escapades off the field.
The bio gives us an insight into not only his thinking as a player but the reasons behind the events which happened in his life. A must read for all cricket lovers.

Good story - gives you an insight into SW mindset

The part I loved the most was the never say die attitude Warne demonstrated at various stages of his career and life.

Engaging cricket stories as well. Full marks to the narrator to make the audiobook engaging!

Interesting

Nice anecdotes and cricket snippets. Sometimes sound over the top but that's ok - he was always a showman, wasn't he .

Whatta bowler!

A great read/listen for all fans of cricket and especially leg spin. I've been a big fan of Warne ever since I started cricket and it's great to read the book and see that he is a pretty great guy both on and off the field.

pleasure listening

After listening, I have massive respect to warne's understanding of the game. he truly was the best leader not to have captained an international side. please listening.

some of the Asian cricketers names are not pronounced properly by narrator.

Excellent, let down by not being author narrated

Thoroughly enjoyed the book. Shane has lived a really full life and discloses so much of it here. My only criticism would be that he didn't narrate it - the narrator was good but mispronounced most of the sub-continental players names which was jarring.

Good but narration could’ve been better

Shane Warne is a cricketing legend & this book is a great insight into both his sporting & personal life.
I thoroughly enjoyed the book & recommend it to any cricket fan.
I do have one criticism. If you are going to narrate a book which contains names of individuals from foreign countries or people you obviously have never heard of, it would be a really good idea to actually research the correct pronunciation of those names before you record the narration.
The mis-pronunciations could & should have been avoided with a little bit of fact checking & effort. In fact, at times it made the narrator sound stupid & ignorant. Shame really.
Other than that, I recommend the book.

interesting account of warnes life

can definitely tell this was written in warnes words, it's interesting to hear warnes view on so many different cricketing experiences and topics. The epilogue was abit strange and unnecessary, and the enormous ego he has sitting on his shoulders at times became over incessant, cringey to a point.

As expected a real ripper from S K Warne

As a cricket lover it wasn't hard for me to listen to account of Shane Warne especially as it was his own.

I may have suspected some airbrushing here and there but it was a well delivered dive into this charismatic cricketer's life both on and off the field.

I would certainly recommend to cricket lovers. I'm still not sure about David Saker's nickname, did anyone else get it?!
