John Buchanan is perhaps the most successful cricket coach in history a remarkable achievement given that when he was appointed in October 1999 to replace Geoff Marsh, many people doubted him due his lack of Test level experience. He proved the critics wrong. Along with current captain Ricky Ponting, John has led the Aussie team to unprecedented success, including a worldrecord 16 consecutive Test match victories, Ashes triumphs; the 2003 ICC Cricket World Cup in South Africa; a victorious 2004 tour of India; and the team's firstever ICC Champions Trophy, and the recent 2007 ICC World Cup in the West Indies. Prior to coaching Australia, John coached Middlesex in the UK as well as five successful years at the helm of the Queensland Bulls, taking them to two Sheffield Shield titles and two Mercantile Mutual Cup wins. In his first book, he brings his innovative style, his leadership principles and his visionary drive to the wider community.
