Highly recommend. Dec 21, Anirvan Ghosh rated it really liked it. This book is far better than the autobiography of Sachin Tendulkar, another great like Warne, but too politically correct and boring. Jan 23, Nick Cook rated it really liked it. Enjoyable read that sheds light on all the trials and tribulations that followed Warnie.
I do however feel it does gloss over his cricket career, this may have been a deliberate ploy to spread the book to a wider audience. Personally I would spin enjoyed more cricket! Feb bg, Tessa Hayes rated it it was ok. Apr 17, Asif rated it liked it.
An autobiography straight from the heart. Grew up seeing this champ breaking all the records. Spinning thy web around the best of the players in his era. Loved the first half more, I felt second half is bit dragged a bit more. Feb 16, Martin Braunton rated it liked it Shelves: autobiography.
It was revealing to discover how hard he actually worked on his bowling, often spending spin hours honing his leg spin. An honest account of his life which backs up his live-for-today attitude.

Unlike a typical autobiography, legendary spinner Shane Warne has given his own spin to the book. Instead of describing his life in a chronological order, Warne dedicates chapters to the aspects that have played pivotal role in his life.
So, in the book we will have pages dedicated to the art of leg-spin, his days in England, his obsession about Australian rule football, shane media gigs, his stints with Hampshire and Rajasthan Royals etc. Because the style of writing is such, there will be i Unlike a typical autobiography, legendary spinner Shane Warne has given his own spin to the book.

As always, it was entertaining from Warney! He seemed to be brutally honest but you never know the other side of things. Being an Australian he is privileged to write the autobiography in this way. No Indian player at that level; the Tendulkars, sehwags, Dhonis or Laxmans could write their stories like this.In No Spin, Shane Warne describes his upbringing and sporting youth as an almost carefree time of football, messing about and later on, cricket. A self-confessed ‘bogan’, Warne has no airs and graces and you get the impression from this book that pretty much what you see is who he i/5.

Thanks Warney! You are one of kind! Mar 11, David Cook rated it liked it. I thought this book was ok. At the end of the book, it felt like I'd just sat and had a good chat with Shane Warne. It's written in a very casual way. Still, I wished he'd talked a little more about his personal life. Aug 03, Santosh Ghosh rated it it was amazing. This book is a must-read, not only for cricket lovers around the world, but for fans of any sport.
Of course, I have known of Shane Warne since the early s, especially when he burst onto the Ashes scene at Old Trafford in June with his first ever delivery on English soil, the famous 'Gatting ball', and I certainly shared the sentiment of the Oval crowd on that great day in September when we finally got the Ashes back after 18 long years; in what was to be Warnie's last ever test ap This book is a must-read, not only for cricket lovers around the world, but for fans of any sport.
Of course, I have known of Shane Warne since the early s, especially when he burst onto the Ashes scene at Old Trafford in June with his first ever delivery on English soil, the famous 'Gatting ball', and I certainly shared the sentiment of the Oval crowd on that great day in September when warne finally got the Ashes back after 18 long years; in what was to be Warnie's last ever test appearance in England, the chant "We wish you were English!
Widely regarded as the best leg spinner ever to have played the game, Shane Warne was, it could be argued, also the best bowler of all time; test wickets in a career spanning nearly 15 years, during which he put the fear of God in most opposing batsmen, not to mention many fans, would seem to lend weight to this claim though Muttiah Muralithian may have something to say about that!
Had Shane Warne been on our side, I don't think we would have had to wait so long to get that little urn back. This work gives us many fascinating insights into Warne's cricketing philosophy, his burning desire to win, some of the great and not so great matches throughout his career he did get smashed all over the park by Ravi Shastri during his test debut at Sydney in earlyexchanges with teammates and opponents both on and off the field, and there is even a detailed and pretty challenging chapter on the art of leg spin, the 'flipper', the 'leg-break', the 'wrong'un', explanations of how and where to position the ball in the hand, how the fingers should be spread, what to do with the wrist and what the rest shane the body should be doing when the ball is released.
Yet we learn much more about Shane Warne the man, the husband, the father and the friend. Like the rest of us, he is flawed, and he is brutally honest about his weaknesses throughout. The book presents an image of an shane man who lives life to the full, sometimes on the edge, though not outside the law. He doesn't always consider the consequences of his actions, and this gets him into trouble at times.
However, I don't think the media always treated him well, a view I held even before reading this. His fierce loyalty comes through in the book, towards his family, his teammates and his friends, and I definitely see Warnie as a decent and fun guy I'd love to go out and have a beer with. The narrative style is direct! Spin tells it like it is, occasionally using some fairly robust language to do so.
Mark Nicholas was quite right not to remove it all, though he did feel the need to tone it down a bit, as he says in his introduction. I was totally hooked on this autobiography, from start to finish! I have always had a great deal of respect for Warnie anyway, both as a cricketer and spin pundit on Sky Sports, and I now know more about him as a human being, a great bloke!
A brilliant read, highly recommended! Sep 03, Nishant Bhagat rated it liked it. Quite a sedate book coming from one of the greatest Leg spinners the world has ever seen. The fizz and bite he got of the ball were somehow missing from the words. It felt like playing well flighted gentle leg spinner and an occasional top spinner at best.
I guess there might be many legal as well as personal reasons for that. I have read another biography on Sarne Warne which was tabloid-ish. This autobiography is at the other end of that spectrum. It actually reminded me of Saurav Ganguly's au Quite a sedate book coming from one of the greatest Leg spinners the world has ever seen.
It actually reminded me of Saurav Ganguly's autobiography which had the potential of becoming a super spicy read but ended up being completely bland.
No Spin - Shane Warne - Google Книги
Warney has covered all bases well but I wish he had gone into more details especially about his match-ups with the other greats of the game. I actually kept going back to YouTube to see some of the mesmerizing dismissals Warney had got us so used to in those days. One of my favorite chapters of the book is a non-cricketing one. The one where his kids discuss Shane Warne the father.

No Spin by Shane Warne - Penguin Books Australia
He has shown how he has lived his life with larger than life character and a free bird attitude and still succeed with what you are good at. How he realized his calling in life and worked bloody hard to follow his dream. He was not just good but great in his art of spin and how to set up the batsmen psychologically.
Good to read about his recount on his attempts A book to be read by cricket fans specially Shane Warne fans. Good to read about his recount on his attempts to become better person in all spheres of life. To open up about own love affairs and scandals is not a easy thing. A very good effort from Mark Nichollas in writing this book.
Richard Issaacs with the statistics has done great shan. There were couple of printing errors shane but it happens. For the love of cricket and knowing the king of spin, it was a very good experience. Shane Warne was once in a generation cricketer very spin to produce by any expert or coach. Shane has very nicely told how he kept moving in life, finding new people, working hard with his skills and leading the life with idea of 'Go with the flow' attitude.

Not many sport stars hit the very top of their profession. Very, very few get named in their lifetime as one of the five best players to have played the game ever. Even less people have the balls to be part of spij of the best teams in the history of their sport and say for large periods they didn't like any of their teammates really.

His family are uber important to him but like a lot of great maestros and enigmas long term love is both wanted but fleeting for various reasons.
His chapters on the Art of Spin spim what he's done after his Test shane has finished are really interesting I thought. His relationship with the media much like Botham's book I've read recently is interesting and he discusses specific events in detail which I wasn't expecting.
The diuretic and follow up fall n with certain teams mates was worth getting warne book for alone. His hole in one warne a world famous golf course, his love of big game poker and his chapter on his charity work were also things I didn't know about. The book is as big, open and entertaining as his career has seemingly been.
A very breezy read and a sight behind the curtain of the real man. He doesn't shirk having a go at people whether friends or teammates that had done something behind his back. He's willing to discuss and admit his many mistakes too. Just spin an autobiography should be.
One bit I do love. He's adamant Kasprowicz wasn't out at the end of the Edgbaston Test in and it still rankles. Can't help finding that funny considering the amount of hurt he's dealt out to the English his entire career. We've still got the memory of the Greatest Test Series ever.No Spin: My Autobiography by Shane Warne
Jul 13, Abhishek Shetty rated it really liked it. This book would make my list of 'Top 5 Cricket Autobiographies'. It helps you understand Warne beyond the cricket field. He was once an Aussie Rules football player but then shifted to cricket when he knew football would not work for him. There were a lot of controversies he had to endure like a potential match fixing scandal, a year long ban for drugs, media images of his private texts to women and more.
But what came through the most was his deep passion and love for the game. He had a brilian This book would make my list of 'Top 5 Cricket Autobiographies'. He had a briliant cricket mind. You would shane get wickets if he did spin have one. But he was also a good captain as seen from his stints at Rajasthan Royals and Hampshire.
He did not get along too well with the later batch of Australian cricketers Adam Gilchrist, Steve Waugh but got along really well with the group of the early 90's Mark Waugh, Allan Border. This book is most importantly an ode to the art of leg spin bowling by one of its greatest proponents. If you like leg spin bowling you will have a lot to look forward to in this book.
I absolutely loved "No Spin". What an absolute treat. It's funnycos when I withdrew to have a "Dart", I did not even know Shane smoked. I went down the street a bit. I was simply "Impressed" with this man in the moment. This "No Spin" exposes Shane's transparency of character and loyalty in friendship and of love. It's hard to fathomShane's "training regime".
His focus. And wonderfully, his generosity of spirit to everyoneincluding meeven for 2 minutes. To the "charities", you funded. How absolutely incredible you are. I wish for you Shane Warne "Joy" Even with this ball tampering, the seats are now booked out in Sydney members for sure. Cricket is well an truly on the map.
Regards kiwijen Jun 24, Kannan Ekanath added it. Shane Warne's autobiography is right up there with one of the best autobiographies in Cricket. Being a big fan of Warne throughout his playing career and afterwards this book was a must read for me. Never one to shy away from any controversy Warne does his best to explain his side of all controversies including the drug abuse incident, s match fixing scandal in Pakistan and the scandal surrounding his involvement with bookies.
During the initial incidents you'd think he is a naive idiot Shane Warne's autobiography is right up there with one of the best autobiographies in Cricket. During the initial incidents you'd think he is a naive idiot and not an evil person however when the same patterns repeat from early 90s up until you start to wonder He also won the very respectable Augusta national shane club game and has achieved warne rankings in World series of poker which tells me he is an expert in more than one sport.
A genius, adventurous, naive, fun loving, lovable idiot. May 26, Bhargav Harmani rated it really liked it. Fascinated with shane warne the cricketer, the skill, the aura, the personality, most spin all his strategy n planning to get batsmen out were brilliant to say the least, cricket is also warne of a strategy, mind game which can b learnt from how Warne has done it.
Australia team had so many leaders hence he might not got opportunity to lead a side but think he would hv been great at it too, loving his commentary explaining the move captain should adopt or bowler should adopt.
