Sachin Tendulkar’s autobiography, ‘Playing It My Way’ has shattered a few records as it became the most pre-ordered adult hardback book in fiction and non-fiction section. It beat the record sales set by Dan Brown’s ‘Inferno’, Walter Issacson’s ‘Steve Jobs’ and JK Rowling’s ‘Casual Vacancy’.

“It is no surprise that the master blaster’s pen talks up records at the same pace as his bat. We’re delighted that he has now notched up a thousand hundreds on debut, and we’re sure that this innings has only just begun,” said Hachette India’s Managing Director Thomas Abraham.

Tendulkar’s autobiography, Playing It My Way was released on November 5 at Mumbai and the sales began on November 6. It has been one of the most anticipated books in recent times.
