    Anyone read Slaters book.

    Apparently he had a go at Steve Waugh and Gilchrist.

    Anyone got any details.

    Has it been released yet at all?

    I wouldn't mind having a quick read, since I like Slats as a player.....depends on how much whinging he does in the book as to whether I pay full price for it!

    I don't know if it's been released.

    All I heard was that he had a pop at those two in it, so was intrigued if anyone knew any specifics.

    Just spotted it in a book shop yesterday, here in Canberra.
    You know it makes sense.

    There was an article in the Sunday papers, including an excerpt (sp) from his book where he talks about his dropping from the side during the 2001 Ashes series, and pretty much blames Steve Waugh for all of it. He definently has a go at Steve Waugh, but more says that Adam Gilchrist had a go at him - and Slater himself seems to sort of indicate that he probably deserved it.

    I read it and I had to agree with it.

    If somebody has an issue and doesn't have the balls to come to the person concerned (in this case Slater) then Slater has everyright IMO to get upset.

    If I see a copy I may end up buying it.

    Yeah I've read it. It's a fast paced, interesting book. Buy it if you get the chance.

    Argh crap. Well, it used to work. Sorry James for putting up a dodgy link. Was there a CW article on the same story that I could have referred it to?
