I was looking forward to reading some 'behind the scenes' TMS stories, learning a bit more about the commentary team & what's involved in reporting from overseas. I guess it ticks some of those boxes - certainly on the technical side at least. After a few chapters I'd really had enough of microphones, cables, telexes & so on. But the writing about the commentary team is disappointingly shallow - we're assured how CMJ & Aggers are great guys loved by all, while (understandably) there's no love lost for Little Englander Don Mosey, but that's about it. The chapters are divided thematically for each tour destination, but as a couple of other people say here, the organisation of material in each chapter can be pretty chaotic at times. I've constantly had to scroll back to work out which Test or tour he's talking about. There's also a 'cricket notes' section tagged on to the end of chapters (often repeating what's already been written)in a rather 'will this do?' way.
Given the subject matter, there are bound to be redeeming features for any hardcore cricket nut. The author has a dry sense of humour, which makes up for some of the duller or more repetitive parts, or the occasional patronising attitudes to the locals (notably in India), but the feeling remains of a slightly rushed job and missed opportunity.
