About The Book & Story

Playing it my way is the Autobiography book by Sachin Tendulkar.  Sachin’s this book gives an opportunity to readers and his fans to know more about his professional as well as personal life. Book takes you to the ups and downs of Sachin's professional life. After reading this book, one will realize that Legends are not born; it takes enormous sacrifices, massive hard work & contribution of many people to bring the LEGEND on the field. However, being a biography, this book lacks to maintain the pure essence of core biographic writing. Most of the information provided in this book is very common & already known by most of the cricket lovers. While reading this book it feels like we are reading elaborated Wikipedia information. Pages with scorecards and game statistics kill the joy of reading and convert this section into just a written commentary. Most of the chapters revolve around the cricket only and very diminutive personal life incidents are shared. Some issues like Scams and Scandals in cricket are very well infamous concerns which are not mentioned anywhere. While being in the international cricket and in National team it is expected that the writer should share such experiences to know how it affects any player's life.

    • Book is 24 years glorious journey of world’s one of greatest cricket legend, which is balanced between the family values & the peak of popularity, which not seen in many people.


Points of disappointment:

    • Becomes very lengthy sometimes because of its long scoreboard and statistical sections.

    • Book seems narrative more than an autobiography, which is quite disappointing. This could have been better if written by Sachin himself.

    • No place has given to the most of the controversial issues that happen with the Indian team, like match-fixing and Greg Chappell conflict issue.

Overall it’s a great book, which shows that famous personalities like Sachin Tendulkar have nothing different from other common people rather than a dedicated approach to achieve life’s goal and determined hard work to accomplish the dreams. It is the story of success achieved through self-discipline, determination, passion, and hard work. This book has covered all the imperative moments of Sachin Tendulkar’s life. Of course, this book is an inspiration for thousand young cricketers and common people who are dreaming of successful life. This is the one-time-must-read book, and worth enough to showcase in your personal library. After all, it’s all about cricket, and when someone says cricket, undoubtedly Sachin Tendulkar is the only name which comes forward proudly in every Indian’s mind.
