RICHIE MCCAW: 148 BY RICHIE MCCAW (UP­START PRESS, $ 69.99)

North & South - - Review -

Big guy. Big ca­reer. Left big boots to fill. Had a big suc­cess with his last book. Got the big one with New Zealan­der of the Year. Had a big movie out. So maybe this book didn’t need to be quite so big – three-plus ki­los – but who was go­ing to tell him?

All 148 of Mccaw’s tests are doc­u­mented: two pages for each, with lots of pho­tos and his com­ments. As for any in­sights to be gained from the lat­ter, the qual­ity sel­dom rises above that of the post-match in­ter­view. In­evitably, a lit­tle repet­i­tive, but still bound to please try-spot­ters.
