Last of The Summer Whine!

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

A predictable justification from a player who sets out to excuse his own behaviour whilst condemning all the others. Sad

What three words best describe Byron Mondahl’s performance?

Can't do it in three words - but his rendition of KP's sing-song and slightly effete saffer accent was very good to the extent that I found myself getting annoyed with him. Shame his material wasn't up to his performance.

Kp

A great insight to his life and a view of what went on in the England dressing room in a eventful 10 years.

Great listen

Sounds almost like kp
Flower is uprooted (ptp) and really disliked by KP. As a young cricketer you can see where the story comes from and it has etched together snippets of what I have seen of the ego being bullied especially with the textgate scandal and what I have seen followin cricket since the ashes 2005

Excellent insight!

What made the experience of listening to KP: The Autobiography the most enjoyable?

Obviously a very frank and at times revealing and painful account of a fine international player.

What was one of the most memorable moments of KP: The Autobiography?

The humiliating way KP was subjected to apologising to each player individually and the delay/preparation for one particular player.

What does Byron Mondahl bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Excellent narration but it would have been far better read by KP.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Admiration for KP who can admit to the mistakes/misjudgements he may have made as a professional but utter disbelief at his treatment by many in English cricket. Shameful.

Intriguing

A fascinating account of his career in England, and a lot of justifications, but still a thoroughly enjoyable listen. Like him or loathe him, there are more sides to the story than the narrative we receive through the media, and their collective portrayal of him / his actions. This was his chance to get his side of the story across, with a lot of very well made points. Happy to recommend.

KP is sadly deluded!

Interesting take on some of the dressing room and behind the scenes stuff but KP comes across as bitter and deluded in most of this. a great shame.

Very honest and frank writing.

What did you love best about KP: The Autobiography?

A clear look inside the dressing room and a sophisticated dirty politics against the specific one. I love the way KP exposed the media, which is a brave step for a celebrity in this era.

Who was your favorite character and why?

KP obviously.

Which scene was your favorite?

Letter wrote by Rahul Dravid to KP.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Relation about Sky and ECB and the hypocrisy over IPL and English tradition.
