Our Don Bradman 1908-2008: The Greatest Cricket Story Ever Told by Ken Piesse
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Don Bradman was Australia's sporting colossus throughout the 1930s, an idol for a nation ravaged by The Great Depression and unemployment, and with lingering memories of The Great War. The greatest batsman of his or any other era, The Don's never-before-witnessed run-scoring feasts attracted phenomenal interest and raised spirits. 'I'll be Bradman and you can be the rest' was a common catch-cry in backstreet and playground matches in the city and the bush. To this day the majority of his numerous records remain unchallenged, and the phrase 'could be the next Don Bradman' is longingly used whenever an outstanding player emerges. But his feats will never be surpassed, as this centenary tribute to him in words and pictures reveals. 'Sir Donald had always been and still is on a pedestal - unique and almost god-like' - Mark Taylor. 'Meeting Sir Donald was the greatest day of my life' - Sachin Tendulkar. 'Sir Donald was still incredibly sharp minded when I met him. He held strong opinions and had an engaging manner that demanded attentiveness' - Steve Waugh.
