Interesting sad and frustrating

If you're someone who has ever been a high achiever and felt powerless against the establishment but have still been prepared to stick to your guns then you will relate to this story. KP playing for the ECB was laying fighting a tidal wave and was never going to end well. Added to that the blood thirsty and rumour mongering press (notably the Australian press), I am surprised he lasted so long. Forget the ECB and enjoy the rest of your cricket days elsewhere, you are a truly great player.

KP is a Star

i absolutely loved it. i thought it was honest and eye opening and as an aussie found this to be a great insight to the oppositions mentality at times.

Very interesting read.

Good book. Eye opening to an inside look of England cricket from KP. England should use him in a player liason position.

Very honest and frank writing.

What did you love best about KP: The Autobiography?

A clear look inside the dressing room and a sophisticated dirty politics against the specific one. I love the way KP exposed the media, which is a brave step for a celebrity in this era.

Who was your favorite character and why?

KP obviously.

Which scene was your favorite?

Letter wrote by Rahul Dravid to KP.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Relation about Sky and ECB and the hypocrisy over IPL and English tradition.

Last of The Summer Whine!

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

A predictable justification from a player who sets out to excuse his own behaviour whilst condemning all the others. Sad

What three words best describe Byron Mondahl’s performance?

Can't do it in three words - but his rendition of KP's sing-song and slightly effete saffer accent was very good to the extent that I found myself getting annoyed with him. Shame his material wasn't up to his performance.

Blimey what a whinge

Good accurate accent - that even as a South African grates after a while - but KP really has some serious confidence issues. Exhausting! initially I felt sympathy for his position. I am sure that as a naturally introverted man surrounded by a dressing room full of cheeses and egos all colliding at speed his life with England was a painful one. But after chapter after chapter of self-pitying whining I really started to lose the plot. I will focus on his amazing batting not his personality....

Great listen

Sounds almost like kp
Flower is uprooted (ptp) and really disliked by KP. As a young cricketer you can see where the story comes from and it has etched together snippets of what I have seen of the ego being bullied especially with the textgate scandal and what I have seen followin cricket since the ashes 2005

Excellent insight!

What made the experience of listening to KP: The Autobiography the most enjoyable?

Obviously a very frank and at times revealing and painful account of a fine international player.

What was one of the most memorable moments of KP: The Autobiography?

The humiliating way KP was subjected to apologising to each player individually and the delay/preparation for one particular player.

What does Byron Mondahl bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Excellent narration but it would have been far better read by KP.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Admiration for KP who can admit to the mistakes/misjudgements he may have made as a professional but utter disbelief at his treatment by many in English cricket. Shameful.

Irritating

A, self absorbed, poorly written and self justifying book that is irritatingly dull and boring
