Cricket opened Windows for Tino
MIND THE WINDOWS, the autobiography of former West Indies cricketer Tino Best, has been officially launched in Barbados.
Speaking at the launch at Line and Length Barbershop in Sheraton on Wednesday night, Best said his family and a teammate, the late Rondell “Crash” Pollard, inspired him to write the book.
“The book is a testament to my grandmother, mother and aunt. The book is really about a boy from Richmond Gap who came through adversity, whose father was absent and he didn’t take that in a negative way, but rather spun it in a positive way.
“My father has struggled with substance abuse for many years and has been addicted to crack cocaine and pot for a long time. It hurt me as a child growing up, but it never derailed me from wanting to be like my uncle Carlisle Best,” he said. (RA)
