Spun Out: The Shane Warne Story
'He is a walking paradox. He is supremely confident, yet profoundly insecure. He is brilliant, but also a buffoon. He is generous and thoughtful, but utterly self-obsessed. This book is the search for why.' Having shone the spotlight on Kerry Packer and Alan Bond, bestselling biographer, award-winning investigative journalist and avid cricket fan Paul Barry turns his sights on another famous Australian, Shane Warne. Warne is undoubtedly one of the best spin bowlers in the world, but SPUN OUT doesn't list his averages or recount every ball he has bowled. Nor is it solely about sex and scandal. It is a fascinating and unflinching portrait of 'a sportsman with an extraordinary God-given talent, of a magician who mesmerises his opponents, of a kid who won't grow up, of a man whose personal life teeters between tragedy and farce'. SPUN OUT is not an authorised biography. Nor has it been sanitised or spun. Shane Warne's version of his life story has already been published. Now it's time for the real thing: guts and glory, warts and all.
