Rahul Dravid: Timeless Steel HB by Cricinfo ESPN-English-ABC PUBLISHERS' DISTT.-NEW DELHI-Hardcover (English) (HC) Price: Rs. 359

Rahul Dravid: Timeless Steel is a book compiled by ESPN Cricinfo, that talks about the greatness of the man that Dravid was, as a cricketer as well as a human being.

Summary Of The Book

Rahul Dravid is known to be an exceptional player. His unnatural talent in playing Test matches, his power of concentration and his unbeatable strokes have set him several notches above the average Indian batsman. This book features 30 articles sent in to ESPN Cricinfo by Dravid’s teammates and peers, a few excerpts taken from many of Dravid’s interview.

The book shows Dravid as a person who came to be known for his approachability and for being the embodiment of the values and traditions of the 'gentleman's game'. He is a celebrated star among contemporary players.

The book includes stories and incidents shared by stalwarts and amateurs in cricket. There are nostalgic memories from the likes of Greg Chappell, description of splendour by Sanjay Bangar, analysis of Dravid’s techniques by Mukul Kesavan, volumes about the greatness of his captaincy by Sidharth Monga, his gentlemanly behaviour by Ed Smith, his claim to fame and the peaks of his performance by Rohit Brijnath, and the views of his wife Vijeeta who pictures Dravid as a perfectionist.

This compilation serves to show Dravid as an exemplary in his field. His style of answering critics, his nickname as The Wall, his techniques broken down into components and each explained wonderfully, his remarkable innings at Adelaide, Jamaica, Headingley, and Kolkata, his place in the Indian team as well as his style of setting the fielders according to his moves are all  part of this book.

It is a must-read for anyone who believes himself to be lucky to be born in the era of Rahul Dravid. It was published in July 2012.

Timeless Read

It's about the wall of Indian Cricket. The man who is truly a gentleman and more than that the cricketer who took every role as a challenge and nailed it.

Hats off to Rahul Dravid. Forever a #Legend.

Nice Book

The book is a good read. All cricket loving persons should read it. Rahul Dravid is correctly described as "Timeless Steel". He can't be replaced by anyone.

RAHUL DRAVID - TIMELESS STEEL

I received this book within 24hours of its release. Thank you flipkart

I'm also a hardcore Rahul Dravid fan like many of you out here. First of all there shouldn't be a second thought in ordering this book. This book is a bible if you worship The Rahul Dravid. Don't be surprised if you shed tears while reading this book. It gives an insight on Rahul Dravid, A true Gentleman, A fierce competitor, A hard worker, An eternal student, An inspiration and much more.

This book is a collection of 30 pieces. Each story on Rahul Dravid brings out the essence of his chara

Rahul Dravid - The Wall - will be surely missed

Rahul Dravid - the player - would be surely missed by Team India, especially in Tests. The vacuum created by his retirement needs to be filled as soon as possible, though it will be difficult to find an able replacement - a true all-rounder in the correct sense, a dependable batsman, leader, thinker, slip fielder, wicketkeeper, noncontroversial, elegant gentleman, a crisis man or rather A GO TO MAN - as the title rightly suggests. Timeless Steel is a nice attempt which reminisces the best of Dravid's cricket, which incidentally also happens to be India's best overseas Test Cricket of the last

therez something in it for everybody....

I had ordered the book after reading the review by Karunakar Dev, though I have been a hardcore fan of Rahul Dravids style of play eversince i was a kid. Believe me, you will shed tears while reading the book. The book not only talks of his cricketing excellence but his sheer humane qualities, team spirit, true gentleman and very aggressive player.

There is a lot in the book for everyone. we all can apply things we read into the book onto our lives for the better. I work for an Insurance Company and have nothing to do with cricket(professionally), yet the book taught me the significance of t

The Dravid Fan's Bible

This book is simply amazing. I got it yesterday and I spent all evening reading it and all night making a wikipedia page about it. Go to this link for details about the sections and the articles.

http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Rahul_Dravid:_Timeless_Steel&pe=1&

Price-worthiness: 10/10
Hardback, Dust Jacketed, 256 large pages including 18 pages of rare colour pictures chronicling Dravid's career. What more do you want?

Content: 8/10
Contrary to popular belief, 13 of the 25 articles are original to this book. 12 of them have previously appeared in media, especially on ESPNcricinfo

Scaling the Wall!

As the title suggests, Timeless Steel is all about scaling The Wall. It deals with how Rahul Dravid went on to become the great asset of Indian cricket. The compilation of articles do give you a clearcut idea about the Dravid era. What renains a specialty of the book is its approach. Unlike other biographical collections, Timeless Steel never tries to glorify Rahul Dravid unneccesarily. It only focuses on his contribution towards the game and love for it. Be it sharing ideas or just mere thoughts after helping India win a Test in Australia way back in 2003. Just like the man himself, Timeless

Must read to know about the Legend.

You may be or may not be the cricket fan, but you need to read this book to know about the greatest legend for all time. Dravid was not only just a cricketer, but he is a gentleman and a person to follow. I'm sure, whoever reads this book will feel it and shed tears for the difficulties faced by him and for sure will be inspired with it.

You can see his effort and dedication to play cricket. He always did his job with passion and pride. The special thing about Dravid is his patience and calmness, that is really difficulty to have.

He played for the Country by sacrificing his milestones. Yo

The Best Sports book in recent times

An excellent book portraying the career of a great man not only for indian cricket but also for India. The book contains information collected and displayed by many of his colleagues or people who have either worked with him or experienced this great man. A great book to read, and i suggest that one buys this book to know his great man in others' point of view.

An Absolutely Brilliant Read!

Reliving Rahul Dravid's career with the 'Timeless Steel'. Just received my copy today and reading each line is pure bliss. The book goes on to show the love and respect he universally commands from one & all. With interviews of former India coaches, his childhood friends, teammates, noted sports journalists from India & abroad and even his rivals - the book offers great insight into Dravid, the cricketer and the gentleman. And those of you who read Vijeeta Dravid's article on ESPN Cricinfo and loved it, well, this book features the unabridged version! ;)

Not for Rahul Dravid fans

I am giving 2 stars for this book, not because its bad or not engaging - but merely that anyone who is a Rahul Dravid fan would pretty much know every article in this already (as everything was earlier published in either cricinfo website/print magazine).
For someone who isn't familiar with the Wall's greatness, this book would be an eye-opener - the man who put team before self, team before other individuals, team before everything else.
