Product Description

Review

"The book is a delight from start to finish that I promised myself I would stretch the better to savour it over a fortnight's holiday. Naturally, I polished it off in a couple of days. It's a formula that's relentless, but strangely compelling you say to yourself, just one more page; and then gorge on another dozen." --99.94 Cricket Blog

"Thanks to his endless research, Marc Dawson, has produced a truly magnificent effort. An excellent book and worthy of joining a collector's library. Pleasantly packaged, it is a veritable mine of information which whets the appetite for further exploration." --Rajesh Kumar

Format: Hardcover
Marc Dawson's book is one that you can dip into at any time, its 287 pages crammed with a startling array of information. Some you will know, some will genuinely surprise you and a fair proportion will leave you wondering where on earth the author gets his information.

I mean the latter in a good way, as the book is commendable for a number of things, not least of which is the currency of the information. Events from the recent winter months are there in abundance and the chapters are themed so one can dip in and out at will, finding something of interest on every visit.

It is the sort of book that had me saying 'listen to this' a good few times to my family, something that they took with characteristic good humour. The acid test, I suppose, is when your 15-year old daughter is found looking through it when you go into the living room and starts to tell you a story that has tickled her fancy. I can think of few cricket books over the years that might have had that effect; she has never shown any interest (sadly) in Neville Cardus...

In the course of reading this book I have found out many things. Kevin Pietersen's brother is a vicar in Workington; New Zealander Chris Martin once went three years without scoring a Test run in eleven matches, while Colin Cowdrey and Garfield Sobers scored the most Test centuries in different batting positions -each scoring them from six different places in the order. At the other end of the cricketing spectrum, Strictly Come Dancing judge Len Goodman was once banned from cricket for cheering when he took a wicket at the age of 13. Goodness knows what the officials would make of the dancing after wickets in the IPL..even less than Len, I'll wager.

I wonder if the author has heard of Sir Richard Hadlee, the Compton brothers and Chris Balderstone.True cricket fans will know why.One more thing, though it was an MP who got it wrong, but the error is repeated in the book Buzz Aldrin playing golf on the moon. He didn't try Alan Shepard .Actually the book can get boring. Buy Wisden it is much more fun.
