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