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.

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!

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.

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.

Love Warne, enjoyed most of it, narration below av

I am a fan of Shane Warne and loved this book. The early parts of his life and all of his career were the best parts of the book. The stories after retirement were slow and a little boring, except the IPL story. These were the last few chapters, so the book finished on a less than engaging note.
I particularly enjoyed Warne's frankness. I had long forgotten about his many misdemeanours and misadventures, but he was happy to talk about them from his perspective, and it made for an interesting story.
The one major letdown for me for Rhys Muldoon, the narrator. He has a good reading style, but it appeared obvious that he has not had much association with cricket in his life, for he mispronounced most names and places - South African, Sri Lankan, Indian, even some English ones. To a keen follower of Cricket, these are names and places one hears all the time and it felt very odd hearing a great of the game, i.e. Warne in Rhys' voice, bludgeon the names. Perhaps some more research before work like this would help.

Fabulous book is that the narrator sounds like he is eating into gum Great story and played with Shane between 89 and 92 at Saint Kilda shame he never mention me at pogs house after you got back from Sri Lanka well that was a good story

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.
