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. About the author: As far back as 2003, Rudolph Lambert Fernandez challenged the status quo - Bradman's undisputed rank as the greatest batsman in cricket history - by arguing that Sachin was in fact far greater. Ten years on, his book invites readers to a detailed comparison - the first of its kind. Rudolph's writing on Sachin Tendulkar has appeared in The Hindu, Firstpost.com, The Asian Age, The Bengal Post, www.cricketcountry.com (an India-based cricket website) and www.sportskeeda.com (an India-based sports website). Rudolph's writing on cricket has appeared in The Statesman, www.dreamcricket.com (a US-based cricket website), www.alloutcricket.com (a UK-based cricket website), www.thecricketmagazine.com (a UK-based cricket website) and www.cricketnext.com (an India-based cricket website). Rudolph invites readers to look beyond the mere obvious in cricket, especially in recording and rewarding batting greatness. www.greaterthanbradman.com Follow Rudolph @RudolphFernandz on Twitter Email: [email protected] https: //www.facebook.com/RudolphOnCricket

Published in 2003, 'Bradman Revisited' sold out as the first analysis of his batting technique to be supported by science. Further research has necessitated this update. We conclude Bradman's boyhood game with golf ball and stump, which evolved naturally into his 'Continuous Rotary Batting Process', was the foundation to his success.

'What seeps through the pages is Benaud's passion for the game, his open-mindedness and his eye for a story. He has become a cricket institution' The Sunday Times 'His timing is magical, his phrasing simple and his choice of what and when, quite brilliant ... his heart beats upon our summer game and frequently acts as its conscience' Daily Telegraph 'It's his insight, loyalty, generosity and quick wit that has kept him at the very top' The Sun * * * * * * A Sunday Times top ten hardback bestseller, this is a hugely enjoyable celebration of the game of cricket, written by its most popular TV commentator. My Spin on Cricket tells the story of the great game through the ages, through personal anecdotes and a lively, well informed narrative by Richie Benaud, the popular cricket commentator and former Australian cricket captain.

He discusses all aspects of the game, including gambling, sledging, leadership and technological development in this entertaining and highly informative book.

Continuing on as a series from The Australian Book of True Crime, this book tells the amazing stories of Australian heroes throughout history. Each chapter focuses on a different hero – from the 19th century through to the modern day. Some heroes are ordinary people accomplishing extraordinary deeds in their daily jobs like Dr Fiona Wood who created plastic skin which has saved the lives of numerous burn victims, including those maimed in the Bali bombing. Other heroes display incredible bravery during times of war such as Tom Diver Derrick, a WWII hero who Major Peter Cosgrove has called Australia's greatest-ever soldier. From explorers, soldiers, doctors and nurses to charity workers, religious figures, and everyday mothers and fathers, Larry Writer offers a fascinating look into the life of some truly inspirational Australians

Australia is a nation of sporting enthusiasts, as famous throughout the world for its athletes as for its sporting obsessions. The Oxford Companion to Australian Sport is the first authoritative and encyclopaedic reference on sport in Australia. Produced by the Australian Society for Sports History, in association with the Australian Sports Commission, The Oxford Companion to Australian Sport provides the first cohesive overview of the temper and development of the innumerable codes that constitute the Australian sporting character. Associate Professor Wray Bamplew and his four co-editors - all noted sports historians and authors - provide readers with almost 1000 entries on everything from 'Bodyline' to pigeon-racing. All sports are covered, not just the major ones like cricket, Australian Rules, rugby, lawn tennis and horse-racing. The Companion offers succinct and informative entries on orienteering, parachuting, hang-gliding and korfball, as well as countless short entries on famous and influential sportsmen and women, and on significant institutions, competitions and venues. The Companion also offers major thematic essays on crucial aspects of the history, proliferation and increasing professionalisation of sport in Australia. There are entries on sports medicine and sports management, which are major growth areas. The cultural influence of sport, as represented in art and literature, is discussed in separate entries, as are more contentious subjects such as violence in sport, crowd disorder, and obsessiveness about sport. For the first time, readers have access to biographies of sporting champions from countless sporting codes. Philip Anderson, Raelene Boyle, Ron Barassi, theChappell brothers, Dawn Fraser, Joan Hammond, Keith Miller and John Newcombe all rub shoulders in this literary pantheon. Unrivalled in scope and scholarship, The Oxford Companion to Australian Sport presents a readable cultural history of Australian sport which captures its diversity, its scandals and legends, and its formidable hold on the Australian imagination. It is essential reading for sportsmen and women, sporting administrators, scholars, journalists, and the great mass of sports followers.
