The most uplifting TV programme I have ever watched. The story of a man who triumphs against the odds due to kindness, perseverance and a terrific sense of humour. Brilliant!

5.0 out of 5 stars A triumphantly unusual cricket book, 8 Feb. 2013
This book is a serious and well written attempt to look at the elusive concept of "manliness", and the way that it has changed in Britain over the last 100 years. To provide some focus for its theme, the book concentrates on 7 major figures from a great county cricket club, Yorkshire. The seven chosen are George Hirst, Herbert Sutcliffe, Hedley Verity, Fred Trueman, Geoff Boycott, Darren Gough and Michael Vaughan. The whole concept sounds crazy, but to my astonishment, it works triumphantly. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and could not put it down.

It probably helps that Max Davidson was assisted by his comissioning editor, Matthew Engel, who is himself a great writer, and a master at marrying cricket with wider societal themes.

I strongly suspect that most people who give this book a try will enjoy it.
