Ever since I started reading books, otherthan the ones from curriculum, I have been desperately waiting to read the autobiography of Sachin Tendulkar. Having been a follower of cricket and having had received inspiration from this most celebrated Indian cricketer many a times in my life, my wait for his book makes all sense to myself. It's good that Sachin has decided to put some portion of his life in pages. Apart from making money, I'm sure this book is going to help the readers from psychological and spiritual perspectives.
Sachin is not so fond of speaking out things in public. The deep and an obvious wish to give his very own book a complacent look might have encouraged him to go back in time, in memories, to bring out the all unsaid over all these years. That's going to be an interesting read. Not just book lovers, I think, cricket and Sachin lovers are going to purchase this book to know about their ever lovable little matter and his side of the story.
The pricing of the book surprised me to be frank. It should have been lower than that of the current price. The price of it might be a problem in the reachability of this book to the mass readers. Piracy might make the things easier but I sincerely hope that does not happen. That's all I can do about it for not. Although the pricing surprised me, the size of it did not. After all, it's about the longest carrier in the history of cricket and about one of the few players the sport loved back.
I'm all geared up for the read. I congratulate Sachin Tendulkar on the eve of his book release. No doubt, many of the readers are going to believe him and I will be of no different. However, keeping up the commonsense is important. I'm sure I'm going to enjoy this read. Wish you the same, if you wish to do so.
