The autobiography on South African star AB de Villiers named “AB: The Autobiography” will be releasing this September
One of the most explosive players of our time, AB de Villiers is finally on every house. Reader all across the globe awaits for the book where de Villiers’ valuable own words are present. “AB: The Autobiography” contains very important phases of the life of de Villiers, from his childhood to his school life and from there how he reached the present success palace, about the controversies as captain of the South African squad.
The book also throws light on his internal relations with the mentors of his team and mates, his career defining moments and of course his personal attachments with the squad.
"This is AB's story, in his own words. The story of the youngest of three talented, sports-mad brothers growing up in Warmbaths, of a boy who excelled at tennis, rugby and cricket, of a youngster who made his international debut at the age of twenty and was then selected in every single Test played by South Africa for the next eleven seasons, of a batsman who has started to redefine the art, being ranked among the world's very best in test, ODI and T20," the book says.
De Villiers very excited for his upcoming book and looks forward to narrate his own story to his fans. It will be released in English and Afrikaans locally and also in English on the same day in UK, Australia, New Zealand and India by Pan Macmillan.
"For me, playing for South Africa through the past 11 seasons has been a fantastic privilege, from my debut against the West Indies right through to all the drama of the 2015 Cricket World Cup semi-final against New Zealand a few months ago, and I am looking forward to telling my story," said de Villiers.
Pan Macmillan too very excited as they are releasing the work of one of the greatest players of all time in the biggest countries.
"This project is an immensely exciting one for Pan Macmillan. AB de Villiers has proven himself, on and off the cricket field, to be a South African leader and an inspiration to millions of people at home and internationally. We are proud to bring his inspirational story to readers around the world," said Terry Morris, MD Pan Macmillan (South Africa).
