Who is Steve Waugh? Jack Egan, respected cricketing writer and documentary-maker explores one of s cricket legends in this unauthorised biography.

Steve Waughs career is undisputedly the stuff of legend. As a player and as a captain he has reached the pinnacle of Australian cricket. His side has been compared to Bradmans Invincibles, and the media coverage following his retirement from Test cricket was reignited by his controversial naming as Australian of the Year for 2004.

Many though, including Jack Egan, have long wondered about the private man behind the public face of s most successful Test captain. For all the media coverage, including his own tour diaries, Waugh guards his privacy fiercely.

This unauthorised biography by a respected cricketing writer and documentary-maker is not only a tribute to a player who has given the world some of the most magic moments in recent cricket, but also an honest exploration of the man himself.

Who is Steve Waugh? Jack Egan traces Waughs career from his shaky debut on the international scene to his mastery of field placing and attacking Test cricket, revisiting a few of his key innings along the way. This is a comprehensive and objective picture of one of s most successful sportsmen, his successes and failures, his effect for good, and bad, on the game on which the Australian team currently has such a stranglehold.
