Our first book written with Aakash Chopra, published by HarperCollins. Now available under brick-and-mortar and online too. With special extra-absorbent pages so that it is not entirely useless if it doesn't make you see the game in a different way. But, given how easy the stuff on the pages is to absorb, we suspect that function won't come in handy.
