I enjoyed the book and found it easy to read. The book is interesting to a point but I feel there could have been more revelation from a truly world class cricketer. The booked seemed to gloss over what could have been quite interesting sections.

All in all the book was a good read but compared to the books written by other ex-players, Gilchrist, Waugh and Atherton in particular, it lacked a depth that could have made it an essential for any cricket fan.

Fantastic book by Mr. Cricket 8 Oct 2013
By Harshil Shah - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a strong follow up to his first book (Mr. Cricket: Driven to Succeed) with a good balance between his first-class and international career. Unlike the first one which gave an excellent insight into his training regimen and his will to succeed, this book is more focused on his career trajectory and his - and also Australia's - tours and performances. He's not as unflappable as we may imagine and the book does well to cover his mental challenges. If you liked the first book, you'll love this one. In either case, get this book to understand what made Michael Hussey Mr. Cricket.

Hussey didn't bare it all 10 May 2014
By Kgopiso Cele - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I enjoyed the book , it was an easy read. However I feel that Michael Hussey was very conservative about the dressing room issues....! When a Cricketer writes a book , I expect him to bare it all. He was tipsy toeing around issues which were burning @ that time ....! eg The Mickey Arthur debacle...!

I feel he was afraid to offend people .....!

I will recommend it to people, because it gives you the chance to understand the life of a cricketer ....! It makes you understand how stressful life can be as a cricketer ...

Integrity Personified 17 Dec 2013

Not a bad read from a seemingly very humble and honest bloke. Simple but effective..much like his batting. Recommend it to lovers of cricket.

An incredible read 25 Nov 2013
By Ben Cobussen - Published on Amazon.com

I'm not a huge cricket fan but what I loved about this book is the insight I gained into Mike Hussey as a person. I can only imagine that it is an even more amazing read to those huge cricket fans out there
At last a likeable cricketer 14 Jun 2014
By batalong - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a very readable biography in which a really nice guy describes the long road to the top of his sport, the problems he found when he got there, and his ability to decide when, and under what conditions, he left. He tells us a lot about his family and this adds to, rather than distracts the reader from, the sense of truthful and balanced reporting that pervades his story. He also manages to tell us about his life without having a consistently bad word for anyone.I note with pleasure that he was always a credit to his country, particularly in the subcontinent. Long may Michael Hussey carry the title "Mr Cricket'; we will be lucky if a more deserving person claims it in our lifetimes.
