    Description

    This is the story of the recently retired cricketing legend, Rahul Dravid. It is an examination of the characteristics that made him the remarkable cricketer and person that he is.

    Summary Of The Book

    The book traces the illustrious career of one of cricket’s all time greats. It examines the various attributes of the man who started his cricketing career in 1996 and finished it as a legend.

    The book looks at the events and factors that contributed to shaping the career of Rahul Dravid, it relates his triumphs, and explores his trials and tribulations. It recounts his struggles to break free of the shackles and stereotyping that haunted him in his early years.

    From this book emerges the tale of a young man who overcame his weaknesses and used his own strengths to carve out a niche for himself in all forms of the game. He is a man who gradually emerged from the shadows of his legendary peers to claim his own place.

    The book highlights the mental, physical, and technical attributes that enabled Dravid to reach the heights he did in the game. His faith in the three Ds, which are dedication, determination, and discipline.

    Dravid, though living in the shadow of Tendulkar, has created records and shaped victories for India that ensure that he is up there among the greatest players of all time. He was never a man content to rest on his laurels. What was more important to him than personal glory was always the team’s cause.

    He is the first Indian to have scored five double centuries in test cricket. He was also the first Indian to score four centuries in four consecutive test innings, and the first test batsman to have scored a century against each of the test playing nations.

    This book is a tribute to a man who has retained his humility and graceful conduct while still scaling incredible heights in his profession, a man who is appreciated both by his own teammates as well as the opposition. He is not just respected as a player, but also as a person.

    The book contains reminiscences and tributes from his teammates, mentors, seniors, peers, and opponents. It also includes some exquisite photographs that have captured various moments in Dravid’s life.

    its a good book...

    its a good book on rahul dravid....its more about his innings and when he walked in to bat...his tough decisions.....it covers the dravid's entire career from 1996 till somewhere around 2005 approximately...his each innings is elaborated in a nice language....for a dravid's fan its a must read...rahul's career's down phase is also reflected by his struggle....only thing this book lacks is it doesnt cover his latter inning in his career since this book was written 6 to 7 years before his retir...

    THE WALL... is there any description needed. ;)

    This is one of the must read in biography category. :) It just mentions how hardwork,sheer persevaranceand patience can contribute to reach the goals. Taking minus points in his strides, always thinkin there is scope for improvement in what he does Rahul reached a pinnacle of success amongst the bunch of cricketers who thought individual is greater than game... Hats off to Rahul.. and hats off to Flipkart for giving me such a book...

    Awesome to Read

    I like this book. Very interesting highlighting both positives and negatives in Dravid's batting, ups and downs in the career, how he worked on negatives and improved and many more. The thing I liked very much in this book is collection of views on Rahul Dravid from various professionals in the Cricketing World(includes cricketers,commentators and media).

    A lengthy report can't be a biography

    The book seems to me the best example of how NOT to write a biography. Reproducing reports of each and every match someone had played and praising the player for this and that might not make the book a biography. At best it can be a lengthy report but I have read more reports with some life in them than this one.These words are too harsh, sorry, I could not help it.

    Brick by Brick

    The book has elucidated the progression of Dravid from a Banglorean boy to one of the most respected cricketer the world has ever seen.The author has tried not bore the audience by creeping to much into the statistics of all the matches, though some one would really look for those.The book is perfect blend of visual and verbal treaty. If you have "Dravid: The timeless steel" try reading this also. Wont bore you for sure.
