Richie: The Man Behind the Legendis not a book of statistics or match reviews. Instead, it gets to the heart of Richie Benaud, the man. Each chapter features personal recollections of various lengths from the people who knew Richie best. Among the contributors are members of Richie's family, childhood friends, cricket greats such as Neil Harvey and Alan Davidson, fellow commentators such as Ian Chappell and Mark Taylor, prominent identities from sport, politics, the media and business, from Australia, England, France, South Africa and the Caribbean. The book ends with a postscript by John Benaud. The book features colour and black-and-white photographs, including some from the private Benaud collection.
