Product Description

Review

"An engaging read, full of thoughtful insights on his colleagues and anecdotes from the great innings he played and witnessed." --The Observer

"An honest and earnest book... The interest here lies in the meticulous detail, some about what went on inside his own head, some about his opponents, team-mates and life in the baggy green." --The Wisden Cricketer

About the Author

Justin Langer played 105 Test matches for Australia between 1993 and 2007, scoring 7696 runs and 23 centuries. He was a key player in great Australian teams captained by Steve Waugh and Ricky Ponting, and with Matthew Hayden formed arguably the most successful opening partnership in Australian Test history. In 2001, he was named one of Wisden's Cricketers of the Year. Following his retirement from international cricket, Langer played four years for Somerset and captained the side in the 2008-09 seasons. He is also the author of From Outback to Outfield, The Power of Passion and Seeing the Sunrise, and is patron of several charities. He was awarded an Order of Australia medal in 2008 for his contribution to cricket and charity work. Langer is currently the batting coach of the Australian side and lives with his wife and four daughters in Perth.

Format: Paperback
This book is one of the best cricket autobiographies I have ever read. Having read the autobiographies of Steve Waugh and Adam Gilchrist it was nice to pick up an Australian cricketer's book that wasn't 700 pages in length and too long in my opinion. Its fascinating to read about the self doubt and fear he felt in his career, about his relationship with Matthew Hayden and Adam Gilchrist amongst others and his views of the English county game having played at Middlesex and Somerset. One of the tales from his time at Middlesex is particularly good. The unfortunate thing about this book is that it makes an Austrtalian batsman who has caused so much misery for English cricket fans likeable. I really can't recommend this book highly enough.

This is a brillant book, offering a true insight into what it means for Justin Langer to wear the baggy green on his head. He writes fluently and in great detail about the struggles he took to get there. He nearly had me, an Englishman wishing I was an Australian. It takes some writer to do that.
