One of Australian cricket's biggest names and most entertaining characters, Darren Lehmann talks candidly about his life - friends, enemies, team mates, tragedies, regrets and the incredible highs and lows of an astounding career in cricket - in this refreshingly honest and engaging autobiography. Lehmann draws the reader back to those first games of street cricket with local kids in Gawler, South Australia, to turning down an early offer to join the Australian Cricket Academy (much to the horror of some), and relives the thrill of being picked to play for Australia for the first time, only to have his hopes dashed and be named 12th man at the last minute. In one of Australian cricket's most fascinating stories, eight years would pass before Lehmann would be picked to play for his country again. And long years they were; this was the limbo period that fuelled the long-standing belief that Lehmann irked officialdom by choosing his own path instead of the one they laid out for him. Two World Cup triumphs, a notorious outburst that saw him banned amid a media frenzy, missing the opening matches of the 2003 World Cup, the tragic death of his close friend David Hookes, and countless centuries and now long-overdue recognition as one of the most powerful batsmen in this current Australian side make Darren Lehmann's story an absolutely fascinating one. He has it all: Experience. Talent. Fire. Knowledge. Trust. And plenty of dues.
