3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 27 Mar. 2015

Not as inspiring as I was hoping. Quite stodgy in places, especially the descriptions of relations with the various Austrian political parties. Had to work quite hard to finish it. He deserves better than this.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fans will like it, 16 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Once you are able to get past the slangy, colloquial style and the tiresome over-familiar use of nicknames, it does have entertainment value. Books on Somerset cricket are rare, so this is a worthy addition to the collection. Somewhat lowbrow and tabloid in execution but it captures the spirit of the club's heroically patient, faithful followers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absorbing !, 16 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very well researched, wide-ranging and informative. Amazing how much we take for granted and it is deplorable to know how badly cared for the crews are. She makes Suez the truly boring transit it must be, and vividly portrays the fear of travelling through the pirate-infested latitudes. It is also an easy read.
