In the case of this book, it's quite evident that not much research is been done before writing about Dhoni as I didn't enjoy anything that's been written once he starts his International Career. Only his starting journey is been discussed as if there has been no Dhoni since 2008. Even his efforts in making various Cups and Series possible for India isn't discussed the way it should have been. In all, I must say that this book didn't stand the way the first two books in the series did.
The story of a young man who has reaffirmed our faith in Indian cricket. On the football field of a beautiful small town in the Chhota Nagpur region, young schoolboy Mahendra Singh Dhoni was a goalkeeper. From here on, the story of Dhoni has been nothing short of magical. Not only did he become captain of a successful Indian cricket team, he moulded that captaincy to his own image, with his strength, conviction and daring strategies. Everything about MS Dhoni, from his early years to his trajectory towards stardom, from his fearless and indomitable batting skills to his courageous captaincy is here in this biography of one of Indias most recognizable cricketing icons. Not for nothing is he known as Captain Cool, for Dhoni brought home crickets most coveted trophies to India, from the World Cup to the inaugural T20 Championship. In the words of Ian Chappell, after Indias World Cup victory, Mahendra Singh Dhonis polished performance as skipper, where he pushed, prodded and cajoled his side into peaking at the right time, has shown hes not only the best leader in the game, but also one of the finest of the last 30 years.
