Announcing Shane Warne’s memoir

No Spin will be released 1 October 2018.

We are excited to announce the publication of Shane Warne’s memoir, No Spin, for release in Australia and the United Kingdom on 1 October 2018.

No Spin is the last word on Shane Warne’s extraordinary cricketing career and his life off the pitch. Perhaps the greatest bowler the world has ever seen, he is also one of the top five cricketers of the 20th century, according to cricketing bible, Wisden. His mesmerising bowling prowess, coupled with his personal life (which has long been fodder for the tabloid press) has made him one of Australia’s most illustrious sportsmen.

No Spin is the true story behind the headlines, in Warne’s own voice, and challenges some of the enduring myths and untruths that surround him. Uncompromising and compelling, it is destined to rank alongside some of the greatest Australian sports autobiographies.

Penguin Random House Publisher, Alison Urquhart, says of the acquisition, “We are so thrilled to be working with Shane on his long awaited, warts-and-all autobiography. A feared player, fearless commentator, larrikin and Australian National Treasure, this is going to be one of the biggest autobiographies in a very long time.”

Andrew Goodfellow, Deputy Publisher at Ebury UK, says, “Despite all the pain he’s inflicted on us over the years, Shane Warne is still one of the most admired and celebrated cricketers to a British audience. You simply can’t imagine the game without his unique contributions. I think his insight, no-nonsense honesty and strength of voice will make this the most read cricketing autobiography in years. At Ebury we are all very excited and honoured to be publishing such a legend.”
