When the nice guy who finished first followed my way..

Given the rate at which cricket related books are getting released these days, it is getting really hard to keep track of them. And I'm not just talking about all those books coming from England, I'm talking about those surfacing in India. After the release of Gulu Ezekiel's "The A to Z of Sachin Tendulkar" a few weeks back, the biographies of two popular South Indian cricketers got released this week. Sunil Gavaskar released "My way", the biography of the late ML Jaisimha on Nov 14th in Hyderabad. The book has been co-authored by A Joseph Antony (Special Correspondent of The Hindu) and Mrs. Jayanthi Jaisimha. Three days later, Greg Chappell got to release "The Nice Guy Who Finished First", the biography of Rahul Dravid. The book has been authored by Devendra Prabhudesai.

Unlike their British and Australian (remember all those excerpts from Freddie's and Waugh's books) counterparts, the Indian scribes don't seem to believe too much in making stories by dissecting each chapter in these books. Isn't there any juicy chapter, paragraph or a line on Ganguly in any of these books for the friendly Indian media to lap it up?
