Roderick Easdale con The Don: Beyond Boundaries: The Life & Times of Sir Donald Bradman (English Edition)

"Is Don Bradman still alive?" is the first thing Nelson Mandela was alleged to have said when he was released from Robben Island. Sir Donald Bradman is a sporting icon and the most successful batsman in history - his test batting average of 99.94 is almost 39 runs an innings better than the next best player.

In 'The Don: Beyond Boundaries' Roderick Easdale explains and analyses the Boy from Bowral's staggering accomplishments and places them in a cultural, historical and international context. He explores the life and character of a part-time sportsman who was, in many ways, a reluctant hero.

'The Don: Beyond Boundaries' is a brilliant introduction to the sporting legend and the era he played in. But its statistics and analysis of the Bradman's success will also make this a must-read for cricket fans the world over.

Roderick Easdale is a Berkshire-born Yorkshire supporter who now lives within walking distance of Lord's. An erratic and ferocious fast bowler in his youth, he decided it was time to retire from playing when his sole wicket one season was a stumping. He now plays golf instead. He is the author of The Novel Life of PG Wodehouse and England's One Test Wonders.
