True Colours is his autobiography, and like the man himself it's incomparable. With unflinching honesty, intelligence, compassion and humour, Adam takes you into the world of cricket that few outside of the Australian team have ever seen. From his early struggles to establish himself, through to the giant achievements of the Australian test and one-day sides, True Colours offers an extraordinary window on Adam, on cricket's major stars and on the game itself.
I really enjoyed this book for two main reasons. Firstly is because it brought back many fond memories of Gilly at his most attacking best. I could not help but regularly go to you tube and watch highlights as i listened. The second reason would have to be finding many behind the scene stories of events that took place but i never fully understood at the time. This was very enjoyable to be able to get a closer look at many of the cricketers that i had watched so much over the years. Gilly wasn't just a crowd favorite for his dare devil explosive batting but also for his humble warm hearted character that he is. You can enjoy both of these aspects listening to this book.
Oh and a really great job done by narrator although he did at times sound a little like Nic Schultz from blue healers
A really good book for cricket lovers of all countries, but not sure if it could hold interest to anyone who doesn't know of the iconic Aussie sports star

Loved this book! Could not stop listening to it. This book gives an insight of what went on behind the scenes on all those fantastic games that I grew up watching! This was the first time I was sad to reach the end of my drive and couldn't wait to get back in the car to start listening to this again!
Congrats on a fantastic career and good luck for the future!!
I really can't believe how badly this was read, really spoiled the book.
I can't believe there wasn't an editor who put this right.
