One of the better sporting autobiographies....a must-read, 14 Aug. 2012
Keeping Quiet follows Paul Nixon's life from young "farming assistant" through to his playing career, most notably at Leicestershire, Kent and England. It is a very interesting and honest assessment of Nico's life and all he faced, whether cricket-related or not.
Few autobiographies will dare to delve into such personal issues and "demons" and what a joy to read a sporting autobiography which has been published after retirement, rather than the current trend of publishing a book 2/3 years into a career. Keeping Quiet is a simply, but very thoughtfully written book and is not just a chronoligical run-by-run (or in this case catch-by-catch) account of a cricketing career, but tackles such issues as death, self-doubt, game-fixing, club infighting, banter and funny stories and an insight into acceptance (or lack of it) into the England set-up - plus lots more.
I was unable to put the book down and i believe most with an interest in sport, most notably cricket, will feel the same.
