Publisher's Summary

The autobiography of the highest scoring batsman of all time.
The greatest run-scorer in the history of cricket, Sachin Tendulkar retired in 2013 after an astonishing 24 years at the top. The most celebrated Indian cricketer of all time, he received the Bharat Ratna Award - India's highest civilian honour - on the day of his retirement.
Now Sachin Tendulkar tells his own remarkable story - from his first Test cap at the age of 16 to his 100th international century and the emotional final farewell that brought his country to a standstill.
When a boisterous Mumbai youngster's excess energies were channelled into cricket, the result was record-breaking schoolboy batting exploits that launched the career of a cricketing phenomenon. Before long Sachin Tendulkar was the cornerstone of India's batting line-up, his every move watched by a cricket-mad nation's devoted followers.Never has a cricketer been burdened with so many expectations; never has a cricketer performed at such a high level for so long and with such style - scoring more runs and making more centuries than any other player, in both Tests and one-day games. And perhaps only one cricketer could have brought together a shocked nation by defiantly scoring a Test century shortly after terrorist attacks rocked Mumbai.
His many achievements with India include winning the World Cup and topping the world Test rankings. Yet he has also known his fair share of frustration and failure - from injuries and early World Cup exits to stinging criticism from the press, especially during his unhappy tenure as captain.Despite his celebrity status, Sachin Tendulkar has always remained a very private man, devoted to his family and his country. Now, for the first time, he provides a fascinating insight into his personal life and gives a frank and revealing account of a sporting life like no other.

The narrator couldn't speak regular Indian words

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

It was time well spent because I am a big fan of Sachin Tendulkar. But the overall audiobook is disappointing. The narrator couldn't speak regular Indian words which is a big turn off. Plus the book is very linear. The story of Sachin is well known, and I was expecting the book to be more than about just his cricket.

How could the performance have been better?

The performance could have been way better if the narrator had the sense of reading out all Indian words properly. And there are a lot of Indian words obviously.

Sensational read

Did Sartaj Garewal do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?

Sartaj was alright.He has a nice voice but his pronunciations of Indian names is really ordinary. This was a big let down unfortunately.

Brilliant

The only book I have cried listening to. (towards the end)
The only one I intentionally put off a few times because I didn't want it to end.
