Book Description

The most thrilling and controversial cricketer of his generation, Brian Lara is a hero to millions worldwide. A naturally attacking style and limitless scoring arc, allied to phenomenal mental and physical stamina, proved a recipe for some of the biggest and most compelling innings in cricket history.This new biography charts the influences that shaped Lara as a child batting prodigy, through an astonishing and turbulent career and onto his post-cricket life as businessman, benefactor and national icon.Through in-depth interviews with former international players, coaches, teachers, neighbours, friends and family members, new light is shed on this brilliant but complex man; a true Caribbean hero who still has many chapters to write.About the author: James Fuller is an award-winning English journalist who has lived in Brian Lara’s homeland of Trinidad and Tobago for five years. Fuller writes on sport and business for the Associated Press and other news agencies, as well as writing features for a number of regional Caribbean magazines.Please note that this is an eBook version of this title and can NOT be printed.
