    Description

    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.

    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 Co...

    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.

    A Good Experience!!

    Timeless Steel is definitely a treat to read. It is published by Walt Disney along with ESPN Cricinfo. The getup, orientation and presentation is just perfect as expected.
    You will find a deep insight about different aspects of the legend. You will get words of Mr. john Wright to Guru Greg along with some other cricketer and critics. These are presented well and the sequence is very pleasant.
    It somhow lacks the most valuable remarks of Rahul's team members like Sachin Tendulkar, VVS Laxman...

    Looking beyond Steel

    Why buy this book?

    A hardcopy of the Bradman Oration, an anthology of all the numbers, a wife's view of her husband and a cricketer, looking into some of the things that we missed about him on field, and I could go on. But I bought this out of sheer respect for the Man. It cannot be easy, walking away from the game when you are in the best season on of your career and it is more difficult playing each day knowing that half of the world want you gone because they want the be blessed by god. ...
