Author(s): Greg McGee
Brendon McCullum is known as an explosive wicketkeeper, then batsman, who went on to captain the New Zealand cricket team to glory. The holder of many records, "Baz" is known for speaking his mind. He talks about growing up loving sport more than anything, getting better and better at cricket (although he was a good enough rugby player to keep Dan Carter out of the South Island Schoolboy rugby team), and his uncertain transition to international cricketer. In this explosive autobiography he opens up on the many controversies he has been involved in, including the Chris Cairns affair and the leadership change from Ross Taylor. He exposes behind-the scenes machinations as well as the private moments of exultation, tumult, and despair. One of New Zealand's and the worlds most admired cricketers, he is credited with changing the face of the game internationally.
Greg McGee is considered one of New Zealand's finest writers. Launching onto the scene with his enormously successful play Foreskin's Lament, he has gone on to write award-winning television drama and documentary, crime novels, the largest selling biography in New Zealand history of Richie McCaw, and one of the top-selling novels of 2015 'The Antipodeans'.
