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.

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.

A stunning look at World War II from the other side.... From the turret of a German tank, Colonel Hans von Luck commanded Rommel's 7th and then 21st Panzer Division. El Alamein, Kasserine Pass, Poland, Belgium, Normandy on D-Day, the disastrous Russian front - von Luck fought there with some of the best soldiers in the world. German soldiers. Awarded the German Cross in Gold and the Knight's Cross, von Luck writes as an officer and a gentleman.

Listening to the perspective from the German side of WW2, I can only feel compassion. History is usually view in one-sided a fashion, depending on which side you’re on. This is from Hans von Luck, a gentleman soldier who lets us know what it was like from the other side.
