Publisher's Summary

Everyone knows the story, or thinks they do. The leg-spinner who rewrote the record books. One of Wisden's five cricketers of the 20th century. A sporting idol across the globe. A magnet for the tabloids. But the millions of words written and spoken about Shane Warne since his explosive arrival on the Test cricket scene in 1992 have only scratched the surface. The real story has remained untold.  

In No Spin, Shane sets the record straight. From his extraordinary family history to his childhood as a budding Aussie Rules footballer in suburban Melbourne. From the legendary 'Gatting ball' to his history-making 700th Test wicket. From the controversy surrounding the diuretic pill in South Africa to his high-profile relationship with Hollywood star Elizabeth Hurley. Nothing is off limits, and Shane tackles it all with his trademark directness and humour.  

These days an incisive, charismatic TV commentator and analyst, the 'Sultan of Spin' also lets us in on the mysterious art of leg-spin bowling, revealing the secrets of some of his deadliest deliveries. As Shane says, 'Few batsmen, if any, truly know what I do.'  

A sporting great, a celebrity, a family man and a self-confessed regular Aussie bloke from the suburbs, in No Spin Shane offers a compelling insight into how a boy from Black Rock changed the face of cricket forever.

Great story

Most books about cricketers are more about facts and some basic controversies. Shane Warne tells a story that not many outside of Australia might be aware of. He also gives a good insight into his mind as a tactician and talks about problems he faced head on.
The commentary is good however some of the pronunciations of international cricketers is cringeworthy. While I understand that Indian names might be hard to pronounce but there were some glaring English cricketers names that were a little irritating. Mostly other than this the book is a nice listen and worth a listen.

Awesome read, from a South African fan

I’ve been living in the States for over 20 years now, but vividly remember the first years of Shane bursting on to the cricket scene. Most definitely the greatest and most exciting cricketer of all time in my book. As a teenager, I hated the fact that he nailed the SA team time and time again, but was also mesmerized by this young guy with his larger than life personality and awesome leg spin skills.

Back to the book and why it is awesome:
Thank you Shane for writing this brutally honest book. Information is priceless for any cricket fan, and the insights into all the things that happened during his life and career is absolutely fantastic. The narration was also spot on and very easy to listen to. Great choice. So I would strongly recommend this read or listen to any cricket fan in general, but most definitely any fan of Warnie Or Australian cricket. I think the insights and detail in the book will capture the imagination and you won’t be able to stop listening. Enjoy!

Honest

Inspiring, in-depth, honest and capturing. Love the way he has opened up and been honest about his failings and successes and how his never say die attitude captures your imagination. His apologies are sincere and his friendships true. A New Fan was born by the end of the Book.

The story behind the spin king

I’ve been a cricket fan before the Warne era and still am. I’ve watched his spellbinding performances in the middle through his career. To hear of those occasions in his words as well as what goes into making a fiercely competitive sportsman is fascinating. I couldn’t stop listening. Great read or listen.

WAAARRNNIEEE! 🙌

Loved binging this book. Warnie is a national treasure who changed the game of test cricket for the better. And saved the art of wrist spin from certain death. No holds barred he is refreshingly honest about the good and not so good regarding his life. The only thing that would make this book better is if Shane was the narrator

Exceptional and insightful account

I highly recommend this superb autobiography. The delivery and style is true to the subject and delivers a genuine and honest account and insights. I am a cricket fan which is reason enough to love this book, but I also found the perspectives on people management and leadership style really thought-provoking and enlightening. Thanks Shane (and Mark) for putting this together!

Good stories

Was quite an interesting listen. I enjoyed it overall. Some of the narrator'd pronunciations we're off and that was a bit frustrating. Overall it's worth a listen.

Shane Warne - more than cricket

Absolutely loved this book - an amazing Aussie on and off the pitch. He lifted the spirits of so many less fortune and always stayed true to himself. A visionary on how cricket could be played and what it took to be one of the elites in the sport he loved so much. He is sadly missed but will not be forgotten. Vale Shane Warne!

Warnie Warnie Warnie

Warne is legend! I was born in 88' and took him for granted watching him as a kid. I realised he is a once in a lifetime player while listening to this book

What a life, what a legend.

So glad Warnie and Mark put this book together before he died. I was hooked on the book, the stories of his life are told truthfully and you can't help but love the guy for the way he owned his mistakes and the way he played cricket. A fantastic bloke who excelled in having fun, a phenomenal cricket brain and a hero in my eyes.

I finished this book the Wednesday before he died and was utterley stunned on hearing the news.

I'm sure you'll all enjoy it.
