MUMBAI: The highest run-scorer in the history of international cricket, Sachin Tendulkar who retired in 2013 after playing for an astonishing 24 years will be launching his autobiography on 6 November 2014.  The book has been titled ?Playing It My Way ? My Autobiography?.

The most celebrated Indian cricketer of all time was conferred the Bharat Ratna ? India?s highest civilian award ? on the day of his retirement. Now Sachin Tendulkar tells his own remarkable story from playing in the by lanes of suburban Mumbai, to his first Test cap at the age of 16 to his 100th international century and the emotional final farewell that brought his country to a standstill.

Speaking about the book, Tendulkar commented that ?I knew that agreeing to write my story would need me to be completely honest, as that?s the way I have always played the game. It would require talking about a number of aspects I have not shared in public before.

So here I am, at the end of my final innings, having taken that last walk back to the pavilion, ready to recount as many incidents as I can remember since first picking up a cricket bat as a child in Mumbai 35 years ago.?

His many achievements with India include winning the World Cup and topping the world Test rankings. Yet he has also known his fair share of frustration and failure ? from injuries and early World Cup exits to stinging criticism from the press, especially during his tenure as captain.

Hodder and Stoughton editor Roddy Bloomfield said, ?Over the past 25 years Sachin Tendulkar?s colossal batting triumphs for India have singled him out as one of the greatest players in cricket history. He is universally admired and respected and most impressively remains a very modest man.?

?I can?t over-emphasise the pleasure it gives me to announce that Hodder and Stoughton will be publishing Sachin Tendulkar?s inspirational autobiography in November of this year,? he added.

The book will be simultaneously released all over the world and in India will be represented by Hachette India.
