    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.

    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...

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...

    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 thou...

    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 Must have for true Rahul Dravid fans

    I didnt expect much from this book. I just wanted to keep it as a souvenir being an ardent Dravid Fan. After reading this book, got to know so much more about the man and what it took to become such a phenomenal cricketer. I started following cricket from the same England series in which Rahul made his debut and the book covers almost all of his career till he hung up his boots after Australia tour.

    The book has 30 articles/interviews from various respected players and professionals and it g...
