Strauss' contributions are as thoughtful as you'd expect. But in terms of cricket insights, the highlight comes in the introduction, a wide-ranging, 16-page Q&A with England coach Andy Flower (SPIN WORLD CRICKET MONTHLY)

Format: Hardcover
A little more of a bumpy ride than 2005's Ashes Victory, but another cracking read. The comments of the players take you into the dressing room and on to the field. Did you know Strauss had decided to take Flintoff out of the attack on that last morning at Lord's at the end of the over in which he took his fifth wicket and that if Fred hadn't bowled the no-ball that gave him that extra delivery he needed to bowl out Peter Siddle he would have ended his Test career without featuring on the honours board at Lord's for bowling? I didn't until I read this book. Nor did I know that Andy Flower only took the coach's job after getting the approval of his deposed predecessor Peter Moores, nor that he thought Fred would only be able to play in one Test all summer, nor the moment when Kp knew his series was over nor the full story of Stuart Broad changing his bowling approach nor the detail of the clear-the-air meeting the players had after losing at Leeds nor that Trott thought he was going to be given out first ball of the day at the Oval when he went on to get his debut hundred. Full of insights and opinions, a few too many from Graeme Swann for my taste, but overall top stuff and the final day at The Oval is brought wonderfully back to life. Can still feel the tingle. Highly recommended.

4 of 6 people found the following review helpful By S. Gibbon on 3 Nov. 2009
Format: Hardcover
This book is the Ravi Bopara of Ashes books , promised so much but failed to deliver.
The so called exclusive and official story is nothing more than comments made by the players in press interviews after each game thrown into match reports.
With so many of the team producing their own books I suppose this was to be expected .
If you thought this book would be like the excellent 2005 edition ' Ashes Victory ' you will be dissapointed .
