Synopsis

Tony Greig was a fearless cricketer, a born entertainer, a stalwart friend and a loving son and father. His death in December 2012 was met with an outpouring of grief from friends, family, fans and colleagues alike. Summer in Australia will never be the same. This enthralling memoir begins in Tony's birthplace, South Africa, as his mother Joyce embarks on an extraordinary war time love affair with a man not her husband, Sandy Greig. Tony's life encompassed more than half a century of cricket, from school boy cricket in his beloved South Africa, to his early days in Sussex, through to his captaincy of England. Whether he was loved or hated, on or off the field, all respected the big man's courageous spirit and skills as an all-rounder. Through his controversial friendship with Kerry Packer and his involvement in World Series Cricket, Tony helped change the game forever. Turning from foe to friend, Tony won over Australian audiences becoming one of the most beloved sports commentators of all time. A legend beyond the cricket pitch, Tony's enthralling story is told by the people who knew him best, his mother Joyce and his son Mark.
An intriguing and charming family memoir of one of Australia's favourite adopted sons.

    A great read. This family memoir wraps the story of one of the great all-rounders, and a man who helped change the game forever, inside stories of deep personal sadness, of war-time bravery, and of love.
