    For close to 80 years the world has revered Donald Bradman as the greatest batsman ever while Sachin Tendulkar has been accepted merely as the greatest contemporary batsman. In this first-of-its-kind forensic study, find out why Sachin, not Bradman, is the greatest batsman of all time.

    This book is unlike any other book on cricket.

    It is not a biography of Sachin or Bradman. It is an unprecedented attempt to set the record straight.

    It is not a compilation of interviews or cricket anecdotes.

    It is a tribute to Sachin. It corrects the grave injustice done to him by those who maintain that the crown belongs to Bradman. After all, Bradman is the final frontier.

    You are invited to take a closer look. See Sachin in an entirely new light-one that encourages historians, fans and critics to weigh afresh his place in cricket history.

    The author says - Many of the statistics I present are new. I hope I am also offering a new way of looking at their achievements, a more persistently honest way of looking at them. This book is not about Sachin being the greatest batsman in 1998 or the greatest batsman in 2010. It is about him as the greatest batsman in cricket history. So you will need to take your eyes off the TV screen playing last year's ODI or replaying last year's test, to appreciate the arguments here.

    For any fan of Sachin-for that matter, any fan of cricket-this book is a must read.

    The Truth started Speaking

    This book is really an eye opener about the injustice done to Sachin. I was really shocked to find that Bradman's records are no match for Sachin's yet Sachin has always been, wrongly, placed one notch below Bradman. Thanks to Fernandez for compiling the facts and statistics so that we can take a fresh look at Sachin's record and grant him his true place in history as the greatest batsman ever.

    Setting the score right

    Rudolf Fernandez wields the pen (or, rather, his keyboard, I assume) with the same gutsy grip that, well, Tendulkar, held his bat. A thoroughly well-researched and eloquent defence of Sachin as the greatest batsman, this book will have you cheering Tendulkar on the louder if you're already a fan --- or sitting up and taking serious note if you're not. Compelling statistics and sheer hard logic are the tools Fernandez uses to demolish the idol that Bradman has always been, to present a contras...

    Measuring greatness of Sachin

    The book enlightens the reader about greatness and how it should be evaluated. It compares olden day cricket with modern day cricket. Various other factors are taken into consideration from many angles, not just statistics. Whether you are a fan of Sachin or not, you'll enjoy the book because of the fresh views offers on the theme of greatness. It's very different from the other books on Sachin.
