A Personal Story of the Ashes and World Cup Campaigns 2002-03.
From the 2002 Ashes Series to the 2003 tour of the West Indies there has rarely been a more tumultuous, controversial or exciting period in Australian cricket - and at the very centre of all of it has been Adam Gilchrist.
From the debate over Steve Waugh's continued captaincy, to the unstoppable one-day team's march to World Cup victory, to the sledging controversy that found the Test team in the West Indies, Adam takes the reader inside the dramas as they appeared to the cricketers themselves.
Along the way, he also explains what makes him play the way he does - batting with such exuberance and skill, wicket keeping with steely concentration, yet still willing to return some much needed sportsmanship to the game with his internationally applauded decisions to walk before being given out.
'Walking To Victory' is not another diary. Written as a narrative, and intertwined with in-depth analysis and commentary, it's a vivid, fascinating and eye-opening insight into a remarkable seven months of cricket from one of the game's most gifted, exciting and best-loved players.
