5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the purchase price, 18 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent package, which includes both film versions of Hemingway's story and a number of valuable extras like a reading of the original story. If you are interested in this area of cinema and literature, you should definitely get it.

3.0 out of 5 stars More a 2 figure innings than a 3 figure one, 18 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There's much that's interesting in the book (especially if, like me, you are a Glamorgan fan). But the book lacks a focus. It's main focus isn't about making centuries and more about batting in general and there's too much padding with some familiar stories about batting retold.

3.0 out of 5 stars Packaging needs rethinking, 3 Aug. 2015

The coffee was fine but the packaging was ill judged - a small box was put into a much larger one which had to be stuffed with paper to prevent the small box moving around.

3.0 out of 5 stars A pleasant enough exercise in nostalgia., 4 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you are old enough to remember most of the cricketers, Stephen Chalke speaks to, the book is a pleasant enough read. But, frustratingly, many of the interesting issues that come up are never developed so the book remains on the surface. It's main attraction is nostalgia.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cricket for Nazis, 24 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There wasnt much research material for dan Waddell to draw on but the event is so bizarre - a cricket tour to Nazi Germany in the late 1930s - to make the book an interesting read.

3.0 out of 5 stars A mixed bag, 23 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The discussion of the cricket is interesting and provides some insights. The descriptions of the social and political background to the cricket is like a competent student essay. I soon found myself skipping these passages


Six of the Best: Cricket's Most Famous Over
Six of the Best: Cricket's Most Famous Over
by Grahame Lloyd
Edition: Hardcover

3.0 out of 5 stars One over, 11 Mar. 2009
Grahame Lloyd's account of Garry Sobers' feat in being the first batsman to hit all six balls bowled in an over for 6, is a book for hard core cricket fans. It tells the story in a straightforward, clearly written way. Its main point of interest is the detailed interviews the author conducted with almost all the participants in the event from the Glamorgan and Nottinghamshire players to the television cameraman who fortuitously recorded the it for history. If you're interested in the history of county cricket the interviews provide a sympathetic view of the late 1960's scene. Particularly poignant is the interview with John Parkin, the batsman at the other end, for whom this was the high point of a brief career.
