A Lot of Hard Yakka: Triumph and Torment - A County Cricketer's Life
A Lot of Hard Yakka: Triumph and Torment - A County Cricketer's Life

4.0 out of 5 stars NOSTALGIA, 2 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For a book that is not that old , it relates to another world. The names flash across the book. The world it describes appears chaotic , but there is a warmth and honesty.
This is just a good entertaining read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Still a good read., 13 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I read this when it first came out. it was groundbreaking then. Now it seems quaint and from another world. Everything has been magnified many times. These young successful sportsman were paupers in comparison to todays "heroes". The rewards so much more appropriate. The frustration of an old school manager was apparent then. What he would think now?. And a manager living by the ground?
What was so interesting was the freedom given to Davies.In todays world there is no chance of an author getting so close, taking real views from all levels. The frustrations, the moans and the tensions. Today a press officer would ensure it would be a 'Hello" type piece. It was unique then and I cannot think of another work similar. And it is good fun to read especially if you remember fondly those times - good and bad.
