Book Review: Rahul Dravid – Timeless Steel
Especially after the words of his peers, a segment such as the last one may seem like hyperbole. However, the effect is not that bad. The strength of the piece is based on the strength of character of the man about whom it is being written. Vijeeta Dravid gives an account of the spouse which shows that behind the calm and the poise, lies an endearing father and husband.
In a tongue-in-cheek way, she brings to light that the wall would crumble if asked to change the nappies of his one-year-old in the dead of the night after keeping the bowlers at bay all day in the Trinidad heat.
Apart from celebrating his life till now, the book also showcases interviews by the man himself at different stages of his career. His conversations culminate in his speech at the Bradman Oration in Australia last year, which has been lauded by one and all as one of the most delightful insights into cricket in the present day.
To conclude, I would say the book is not definitive; it is not supposed to be. It is supposed to give an ovation to a person who is truly a great ambassador for the sport.

These and other articles make Timeless Steel as much a celebration of a colossal cricketer as it is of an exceptional human being. It features contributions from his team-mates and peers, some of the finest cricket writers around - Gideon Haigh, Sambit Bal and Rahul Bhattacharya among them - and interviews over the years with Dravid himself.
It attempts to paint a picture of a cricketer who embodied the best traditions and values of the game, and a man who impressed the many people who came in contact with him. Timeless Steel is a collection of 30 pieces, new and previously published, on India's most valuable Test match batsman.
