About the Author

Andrew Flintoff was born in 1977 in Preston, Lancashire, where he lived until he was 21. At the age of 16 he won a three-year county contract with Lancashire, then followed an England Under-19 trip to the West Indies. At the age of 20, he was picked for his Test debut against South Africa. His career really took off on a tour of India in 2001, when he opened the batting, and his maiden Test hundred came against New Zealand the following March. He was awarded with the Sports Personality of the Year and the Professional Cricketers' Association Player of the Year in 2005, after his staggering performance in the 2005 Ashes series against Australia. Andrew Flintoff lives with his wife Rachael and baby daughter.

Format: Hardcover
I recently purchased this book with a niggling doubt; I had read Andrew Flintoff's previous book "Being Freddie" and had been disappointed with it, finding it surface-deep and lacking any real detail.

I'm happy to say that "My World" is a marked improvement. It isn't overly wordy but what text there is tells us a lot about Andrew - how he thinks, how he feels; in fact, I would go as far as to say that there is as much of the Real Andrew Flintoff in a few chapters of "My World" than in the whole of "Being Freddie."

The photo illustrations are very beautiful and well-taken, showing everything from the Flintoffs' Garage (full of Andrew's old kit) to Wedding photos to On-Tour Snaps (Including Steve Harmison and Shaun Udal plying darts with holes in their socks)

I'd recommend it for any Flintoff fan, you don't have to be overly literary to enjoy this book (it has a lot, and I mean a LOT of photos) it is light, funny, interesting and enjoyable.

A fun read.

I am a HUGE England fan and obviously want them to do well at this years Ashes, and bought this book thinking it was an insightful read. But to be honest, much like his autobiography, there isn't much here, other than a few personal shots of Andy's personal life. What else is there to learn after his official book which I bought only ten months ago? I'm passionate about cricket, just as I am about football, and you could say it's not the actual subject's fault, but you do get the feeling we're all being milked for what its worth!! As said, I am disappointed with this book having bought into the PR, I thought it would be a whole lot more than it is, maybe I'll go buy Ashley Cole's or Rio Ferdinand's book next - maybe not! Two stars ONLY because I want an Ashes win!

Format: Hardcover
Flintoff has recently proved himself to be what he is. Following the world cup defeat to New Zealand, he goes on yet another binge and ends up embarrassing himself and the country he represents. To many this came as something as a shock, but proves he is little more than a pampered lout, who is hardly the most talented cricketer England has produced.

This came off the back of Ashes success, when he was at the Zenith of his fame, a cynical cash-in, fleecing the public with a book packed with untruths, trying to make himself out to be one-of-the-lads. To this end he tries to come over as an average bloke, and people seem to think he is their mate.

In fact he has done very little except play cricket, and even then he is not that good at it. If you buy this the profits will go to bottles of hard liqeur which Andrew will inject into his veins. I think it shows enough about his propfessionalism that during a world cup campaign he felt it was appropriate to get wasted and jeopardise their entire preperation.
