Publishers Description: Glenn McGrath is an Australian cricket great”a fast bowler both feared and admired by top-level cricketers around the world. Off the field, his life was touched by tragedy with the death of his first wife, Jane, from breast cancer, yet also marked by a determination to celebrate her life and make sure her legacy helps thousands of others through the Jane McGrath Foundation”now one of Australia's biggest and most effective breast cancer charities. In Test of Will, Glenn gives an insight into the things that have shaped him both in and out of cricket. He writes about his classic cricketing duels, bowling against master batsmen like Tendulkar and Lara. He writes about his great moments, and the influence of such legends of the game as Steve Waugh and Shane Warne, and what he learned from them. And away from cricket he writes candidly about finding love with Sara after the tragedy of losing Jane. He writes about starting the McGrath Foundation and the enormous impact it's had on many peoples' lives. He writes about the annual Pink Test in Sydney, how it came about, and what it means to him, and he writes about fatherhood, raising two children, and the excitement of expecting another.
