    One thought on “Sachin Tendulkar-A Definitive Biography”

    1. More like a chronological telling of Sachin's cricket history, starting from school. Lots of theories added to the mix, but I fail to see how they enhance the book in any manner. A dry read, for the most part. The best part of the book is that as you read it, you relive Sachin's boundaries, wickets and centuries in your mind!

    2. The book provides a good trip down memory lane especially if you are one of those early 80's kid who literally grew up alongside Sachin Tendulkar's career. But it offers only few things which you already didn't know about Sachin. That maybe because Sachin has always been in the public eye so much, that we already know a lot about him. The chapters on his early life are interesting in that aspect as they provide us insights into moulding of Sachin as a cricketer.The book was written in 2005 with [...]

    3. The chapters on his early life are a treat to read. There is so much in those that was not known to me and is pretty interesting and important to really upgrade the status of the GOD.However soon after the initial years of his cricketing life were over, everything was known already. Perhaps because Sachin is such a public figure that nothing of his life could remain unknown. It was certainly a treat to relive all the innings and those special contests.I will certainly read this again someday and [...]

    4. The book I read was mainly covering the period till 2005. Although the author has added the happenings after that in his epilogue and extended it to 2010, it is a much shorter description of the period. Obviously, the book misses the world cup triumph of 2011 and the never before celebrated retirement of any sporting legend of 2013. I would love if the book is updated now to cover these crucial events. But overall, a fantastic read.

    5. Biography written towards the later stages of Tendulkar's career. Some of the pivotal moments of his career including the 100th century, 200 ODI unbeaten runs, and World Cup win come later. Could say, it is the hors d'oeuvre before the main course- if Tendulkar is of the mind to pen down his thoughts in another 5 years.

    6. The book is a good read but I doubt if it is a definitive biography.It definitely touches on the important moments in Sachin's knocks but I feel disappointed in it not having the trivia or personalised details of his life.Nevertheless a book which a Sachin fan can enjoy.

    7. Note bad, but exactly not what I expected from this book. It doesn't touch upon unknown facts about Tendulkar much, it presents whatever is there in media already.

    8. As a tribute to the Master, read and enjoyed the defining moments of Indian Cricket (and also memories of growing up with Sachin :))
