4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Mike Watkinson TOP 500 REVIEWER on 10 Nov. 2013
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Having been written some 30 years ago, the author had the great advantage of having been able to talk & write to many of the people that knew or played with / against "DRJ", as he calls him throughout. As he remarks at one point, most of the 'villains' of cricket down the years have been rehabilitated at some point. All except one - Douglas Jardine; arrogant, aloof, ruthless, creator of the dreadful Bodyline attack... Actually, only ruthless is a term that can reasonably be applied to DRJ, and then only in the context of his desire to win cricket matches. As the book shows, he was a much different character to the one that has commonly been portrayed down the years (& Fast Leg Theory, as DRJ always referred to it, was certainly not his creation - it had been around for years). If you know your cricket history, then this won't be news to you, but this is nevertheless an excellent, entertaining biography; sometimes charming, never florid, highly readable, always absorbing, and thoroughly recommended. DRJ may be the greatest England cricket captain to date, and was a strikingly good batsman too. He certainly deserves to be seen in a much better light than he has been, and this book goes a good way to setting the record straight.
