Benaud : an appreciation by Brian Matthews( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To generations Richie Benaud was an astute observer of cricket, a fixture of television coverage. Behind the public facade was a charming man whose modesty and firmness of opinion dictated that no one would write his official biography-and no friend of his should help an unofficial biographer. In Benaud, Brian Matthews offers a personal appreciation of Richie Benaud: the dashing exponent of leg spin, innovative captain and prolific writer about the game, but also the intensely private individual. From backyard games in the 1950s and an encounter at Old Trafford to Benaud's heyday in the commentary box-via the Benaud family home in Parramatta and ancestral home in France-Matthews traces the contours in the life of one of the greats

At 22, Robert Rose faced a rare choice. He could devote his talents to cricket or he could follow the path of his father, Bob Rose, one of the great Australian Rules footballers. Then on St Valentines Day 1974 Robert became a quadriplegic following a tragic car accident. He lived for another 25 years, totally dependent on others. His brother Peter, has written Robert's life story. The result is a family memoir of rare candour touching themes of family, disability, loyalty, masculinity, physical and emotional dependence - and above all mortality
