In the 1990s Brian Lara established himself as the best batsman in the world, with a 375 against England, a 501 for Warwickshire and a 400 not out in Antigua among his world records. At 37, he is still the dominant force in the West Indies side going into 2007, but it seems likely that the forthcoming World Cup and tours of India and England will form his international swansong. But this is not simply a story of runs and of world records. Three times the captain of West Indies, rows, strike action and threats to walk out have ensured a turbulent career and a continuing struggle with officialdom. His wayward love life has also added colour to the story of a man who is essentially a gentle, respectful character with a Corinthian approach to cricket. This is the complete account of one of the true greats of world cricket..
