A soul-stirring first novel … first of its kind in India written in English … he knows his cricket, human nature and he can write. — Rajan Bala, The Asian Age, April 18, 2007

It is a novel difficult to put down. — Meenakshi Mukheree, Literary critic and renowned academic

I really enjoyed ‘The Men Within’ …it is a wonderful book so full of life and the survival game … and very well written – nice clean prose which is such a rarity these days. — Anita Nair, Novelist

Paruru’s story has a wide-eyed simplicity that could be uplifting in these trying times. — The Hindustan Times, New Delhi, April 1, 2007

Harimohan Paruvu combines lessons on how to sharpen one’s cricketing skills with personal management techniques … written in a succinct style. — The Telegraph, April 20, 2007

An intriguing novel … — Man’s World, July 2007

A total surprise. ‘The Men Within’ is definitely worth a read-not just for cricketers, but for anyone who loves a good guts-and-glory story that leaves you on a high. Honestly speaking, this novel should have a good lifetime so that it inspires many more readers in realizing that the HERO is within them. — www.cricketfundas.com

…brings back childhood memories of how we plotted and planned our cricket strategy. Every cricketer and sports enthusiast should read it for the author’s deep understanding of the game and all its nuances.
Vidyuth Jaisimha, Former Ranji Trophy player and Director of the M.L. Jaisimha Cricket 365 Academy, Hyderabad

…a must-read for all young cricketers. I wish him all success in this and further endeavours.
S.L.Venkatpathi Raju, Former Test Cricketer and current National selector

‘The Men Within’ captures the excitement, thrill and uncertainty of the game of cricket for his readers. It's a unique way of expressing and celebrating the excitement of the game - without going to the stadium.
M.R. Baig, Former Duleep Trophy player, Senior NIC and BCCI coach

The author has amply demonstrated through the pages of this fast paced novel that cricket – or any sport – for that matter, is played not only with hands and feet but also with the mind and heart. The skill with which the author has combined cricketing lessons and personnel management techniques is highly commendable. A very useful and effective handbook for every aspiring cricketer and coach. A must-have book for every school library.
Bro. K.M. Joseph, Principal, Montfort High School, Nagpur
