Autobiography: Kevin Pietersen
by Kevin Pietersen
No current Talk conversations about this book.
Why did I read this? I don't know. I read a review in The Guardian and I thought I would try something different. I learned next to nothing about cricket as I hoped I would. It's one of those "tell all" books exposing all the politics inside the English Cricket League of Extraordinarily Whiney Gentlemen. What did I learn? A few things. A toxic boss is a lot like a toxic coach. And they both suck. Cliques happen in professional men's sports and not just in private boarding schools for girls. And they suck. Everyone has a nickname and for reporter Jonathan Agnew it's "Aggers" so please start calling me Aggers. And that's it. I kinda like KP's voice. He does shoot straight, but it's a bit too woe is me at times. On the other hand, he's not obnoxious and given KP's rep, that might surprise some. ( )

The fascinating life story of professional cricketer Kevin Pietersen, MBE, from his childhood in South Africa to his recent experiences as one of the leading lights in the world of international cricket. Kevin was dropped from the England squad in February of this year, seemingly calling time on an international career that began nearly ten years earlier. The decision puzzled many observers - although the England team had failed miserably in the Ashes tour of 2013-14, Kevin was the tourists' leading run scorer across the series, and he remains the country's highest run scorer of all time across all formats of the game. This autumn Kevin will reveal all in his autobiography, telling the stories behind the many other highs and lows of his incredible career. Giving readers the full story of his life, from his childhood in South Africa to his recent experiences as one of the leading lights in the world of international cricket, this will be an autobiography that entertains and fascinates readers in equal measure.
