Faf du Plessis is one of cricket’s greatest ever fieldsmen as well as an accomplished all-format batsman. He is among SA’s most memorable and characterful former national captains. But his new autobiography is not merely a book about a career in cricket.

Faf: Through Fire is an authentic work of introspection that seeks to explore the gap between a recognisable persona and a genuine self – a book that expounds upon a successful sportsman’s core values. In this case, honesty, integrity and empathy – essential leadership qualities. In the process, Faf introduces us to the leaders that most influenced him… and the destructive relationships that most affected him. With little off limits, this is an autobiography that goes beyond the ordinary reports to get at the real heart of a renowned sportsman.
