Book Description

1 April 2010 Everything You Ever Wantd/Know
"Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About But Were too Afraid to Ask" explains the often-baffling laws of modern sport in a light-hearted and easy-to-understand way to the new fan/spectator or the 'sport widow'. Cricket is a witty, off-the-wall guide to the rules of modern cricket, as if written by a very patient, but understanding friend. Writer Iain Macintosh explains how cricket works and why is it so popular, and reveals the history of the game. He guides the novice through the basic rules of the sport in a bouncy, easy-to-fathom style, but also explains the fast-changing pace of the modern game that has made it even more compelling. If you've ever wondered what a Barmy Army is and how you sign up, or even if you've just wanted someone to sit you down and explain that whole LBW thing, this book is all you ever needed to know about cricket, but were too afraid to ask.

5.0 out of 5 stars Now I can talk to my boyfriend about cricket 23 July 2013
By Lotli
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am new to cricket and I read this every summer, remembering more each time. I also like What Is A Googly?: The Mysteries Of Cricket Explained and between the two of these books, I now know loads about the game. They cover some different things, but also the same things explained in different ways, including diagrams or not, so together they are very helpful.

2.0 out of 5 stars Charming but extremely basic 11 Jun 2013
By JT
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Ordered this looking for a recap of the basics of cricket and hopefully some background to extend my knowledge of the subject. The book is nicely written and fun to read, but was considerably shorter and more basic than I had expected - in his eagerness to make the book accessible I feel that the author has perhaps overdone it and produced something lacking any real depth. In fact I would venture to say that even a complete cricket novice wouldn't genuinely have more than a very basic appreciation of the game after reading this - very little content on the history of the game and its evolution, and barely anything on such topics as tactics, bowling styles, etc. Perhaps I was expecting too much from this book, but in my view it could do with a bit less padding and rather more length and depth.

I would only recommend this book for kids and those who are looking for a very basic understanding of the game.
