    “uite apart from being ruled by the presiding deity of our times money English Football and Indian Cricket have much in common An irrational following that euates sports to a daily soap a ravenous media – immature might even be the right adjective – that sometimes seen disinclined to shift the irrelevant from the truly sensational obeisance to the individual superstar and as a conseuence of these three complete surrender to hype”Reading Out of the Box was like reading a book by Nostradamus Prophetic judgmental incisive humorous passionate knowledgeable perfectly analytical are some of the adjectives that can be used to describe Harsha Bhogle’s collection of columns on The Indian Express but the one that would do greatest justice is probably ‘honest’ He did not shrug a collar because he is in an uniue professional he did not unjustifiably defend any of his favorite greats and his opinions are deeply embedded in common sense A great compilation that speaks of the game with a common man’s love and passion blending it with a journalist’s surgical brilliance and an MBA graduate’s all connecting logical ability His articles on Sourav and Jayasuriya made me moist his article on Sardesai and Solkar stole my heart A very good read for any cricket enthusiast and much than that I can tell you that the time span of these articles were 2005 2008; and than 70% of his predictions stand correct today

    Read this book on 2020 and the things which Harsha has written 14 15 years ago seem relevant even today The evolution of T20 into a game changing format which he predicted in 2006 is so perfect He deservedly sings the laurels of the Indian greats Tendulkar Dravid Kumble GangulyIt would be great if Harsha would write the refreshed version in 2020

    Many of his opinions are well analysed But of course I too had some different opinions to some of it he has written This is even without the power of hindsight

    Combination of prose and cricket somehow is a potent mix in our country Few people have captured the cricket writing mindspace as Harsha Bhogle has Rohit Brijnath Siddarth Vaidyanathan so for prose This collection of his column in Indian Express makes you re live cricket from your growing up yearsIt is not an analyst account The articles come from the love for the game and it's players Some articles deserve multiple reads of course And you remember certain pieces that are not part of the bookMaybe the grouping of the sections could have been better But that is just if you are reading all articles and trying to decide seuence One for the keeps

    Tale of great Renaissance idea's that came challenging up normal conventional idiot norms Be it advertising journalism or sports success is not guaranteed and norms haunt in your back to get money returns Come this fresh anecdotes from great change makers who dared to come forward and keep faith in methods rather than run of mill works This book helps you get out of your box of idea's and perceptions and give things a run on their own The face of changing Indian society showcasing case studies from great cricketers to tennis and advertising giants that connect to audiences from past 2 decades to all is a great learning example
