Reviews

'Much seems to have been written about Sir Donald Bradman; in fact, it is mostly the same things repeated endlessly. Brett Hutchins' book is different. It is a timely, fresh and judicious appraisal of the idea of Bradman in Australian culture, written in a sceptical but respectful way. I heartily recommend it.' Gideon Haigh 'A challenging revision of the myth of Don Bradman.' Graeme Turner
