It Takes All Sorts

"It Takes All Sorts" is a book written by Peter Roebuck. As a cricketer himself, he has written this book on every cricketing great who has ever walked the face of the earth such as Sir Donald Bradman, Hanse Cronje, Viv Richards, Sachin Tendulkar, Allan Border and many, many more.

Each chapter provides intricate details on the careers of these great cricketers with anecdotes and quotes. Roebuck's subtle humour and free writing style with simple language and a lovely vocabulary makes this book a great read and time very well spent. It is also a goldmine of information for cricket journalists. Even a person who isn't a fan of cricket will enjoy this book because of the entertainment it provides. Exclusively for sale in the Indian subcontinent, hard core Indian fans will enjoy Roebuck's high praise for Indian cricketing greats such as Sachin Tendulkar, Sunil Gavaskar, Kapil Dev and several others. The 'Retirement' chapter of the  book, dealing with the retired cricket masters provides extensive details about the cricketer and his last match. There is also a chapter dedicated entirely to the dead cricketers where Roebuck raises his glass to each and every one of them which is very heartwarming and sweet.

Most books of this nature are boring and preachy, but that man Peter Roebuck has somehow managed to make it a laugh riot, coupled with sentimental feelings towards the end.

So go ahead! Whether you love cricket or not, read this book. It doesn't disappoint.
