"Shane Warne is a cricketing genius. At first there were nerves and chubbiness. Then came vicious spitting leg-breaks, followed by fame and flippers. For a long while there were women, then a bookmaker, then diet pills, then more women - and headlines ... He has taken a test hat-trick, won a Man-of-the-Match prize in a World Cup final and been the subject of endless press speculation. He was the first cricketer to reach six hundred test wickets. He has swatted more runs than any other test player without making a hundred and is probably the wiliest captain Australia never had ... He is also a kid who won't grow up and a man whose personal life teeters between tragedy and farce"--Jacket
