I bought this book knowing very little about cricket, and found it a fun and informative guide. I even managed to teach my boyfriend (a huge cricket fan) a fact or two! I think the confusion from the other reviewer comes from the 'Search Inside' feature on this website - it only shows you one page of a double page spread of a map of the world. I can vouch for the fact that all of the cricketing countries he mentions (and more) are included!

I have not bought this book as I was looking for a book for coaching for my son.As I went through the contents and looked on page "Cricket Globally", it was so sad to see the names of all cricket countries expect India,Pakistan, Srilanka,Bangladesh on world map. I could not decide it was deliberate,unintentional or ignorance to miss the names of such important countries.So Ithought if this author can not see such a big omission how he can write a an "ULIMATE Book"
