KP: The Autobiography - Book Review

Image
If you know cricket and follow it passionately then you would know that English payers were known for their copybook style of shots. There are several stars who hold a conventional style of playing and have been very popular in England and the world. However, there was one who was not a born Englishman but England adopted him as her Son and then almost disowned him as well. This one player came in there and took the charge of destroying opponents and completely changed the playing style of English batsman. His name is Kevin Pietersen who played for not so long period but definitely changed the perception about batting in England. He was the leader from his core. He never settled with anything lesser and always went on higher with the passage of time. He has written his autobiography and today and I am letting you know what he has written in this. Let's talk about KP: The Autobiography by Kevin Pietersen himself.

My Reading Updates - IamReading - January 2019

Image
This weekend, I have been looking at my reading desk and I was delighted to find the books I have already read and the ones I have to read in the near future. I will share my reading desk with all my readers here and I hope they can find something of their interest as well. Reading is something that relaxes me as well as gives me the freedom to explore more of my mood and choice. I have finished non-fiction that was way more interesting than an ordinary novel written by an extraordinary writer (otherwise). I have also finished a few fiction books that are way better, written by ordinary writers, than books written by champions of modern fiction. So, in short, reading is uncertain and it always entertains as well as gives us time and space to ponder. Here is what I read and what I will read.

Since its publication and launch in the mid-2018, the book has attracted many critical reviews and also many neutral readers who have concurred with Mr Bhatia's account and align with him in demanding something which is rarely delivered today - Justice!

Reading an author interview certainly matters!

What is the best thing that the authors have? What's the best possible way to know the things you want to know about the authors? How to find out what does an author read? How to be sure what is the work-life balance mantra of your favourite author? The easiest way, we believe that you believe too, is reading author interviews. Reading interviews of authors can instantly make you aware of their likes and dislikes, choices in various walks of life and also their strength and weakness. However, make sure that you read the interviews on some reputed platforms which are serious about content and presentation.
