He might have bid adieu to cricket but Sachin Tendulkar continues to make records with his autobiography Playing It My Way entering the Limca Book of Records for being the best-selling adult hardback across both fiction and non-fiction categories.

The book, published by Hachette India, was released on November 6, 2014 and has broken all records for an adult hardback across both fiction and non-fiction categories with 1,50,289 copies confirmed on order subscriptions.

The book’s orders, on day one, already saw it pulling ahead of both pre-order and lifetime sales of the world’s top adult hardbacks—Dan Brown’s Inferno, Walter Issacson’s Steve Jobs and JK Rowling’s Casual Vacancy.

Boria Majumdar was the co-author of Tendulkar’s autobiography. The book also holds the record in retail value terms having logged up Rs 13.51 crore with its cover price being Rs 899.
