Richie Benaud is arguably the most enduring face in world cricket - his views are certainly among the most respected. 'Anything But . . . An Autobiography' is the life and distilled wisdom of a man who has been at the centre of the game for four decades: first as a pre-eminent captain, attacking batsman, leg-break bowler and brilliant fieldsman for Australia; and then for the past three decades, as cricket's shrewdest television analyst.

This is the story of the Benauds and the Savilles, pioneers in New South Wales. It is the story of Lou Benaud, who coached his two sons to play cricket for Australia. But it is also the story of Richie Benaud, who as captain of Australia never lost a Test series and in 1963 was the first man in the history of the game to do the "double" of 2,000 Test runs and 200 Test wickets.

This is not just the remarkable story of Richie Benaud, it is a book for those who are looking for an affirmation of the future of cricket, by a man who loves the game but is not blinded by it.
