Great Man, Great Story, Poor Narration

The story of Richie up until 2005 is a great one but this book needs to be re-narrated. To have a person who is not Australian was a terrible decision for one reason; the narrator could not pronounce Australian place names correctly.
It is also obvious that the narrator is not a true fan of cricket because there were a few cricketers names mis-pronounced.
It absolutely ruined the experience for me.

Richie Benaud: My Spin on Cricket

I found this a very disappointing audio book. I was expecting insights into Richies life and times with cricketers over some of the most exciting decades of test cricket and got a badly put together hodge podge of alot of statistics and apparently randomly chosen events.There was no apparent structure or logic unless. Also his voice is so distinctive it is a pity he did not narrate this himself. I soldiered on for an hour or so on Part 1 and gave up. Didn't even listen to Part Two. A real shame as Richie is an insightful and talented commentator and fine cricketer but this didn't translate into this book in my opinion
