More than a plain life story, this book offers a brilliant portrait of Warnie's craft, an analysis of his career through the lens of his key relationships and biggest misdemeanours, and a personalised portrait of the man as he evolved from the pizza-scoffing prodigy. Drawing on interviews conducted with Warne over the course of a decade, and two decades of watching him play, the author assesses this greatest of sportsmen as cricketer, character, comrade, newsmaker and national figure -- a natural in an increasingly regimented time, a simplifier in a growingly complicated world. The result is one of the finest cricket books ever written, a whole new way of looking at its subject, at sport, and at Australia.
