Ashes to Ashes: The Story of the Back-to-back Seri&hellip by Gideon Haigh
2 of 3 people found the following review helpful
As somebody who struggled to watch the sheer awfulness of England's tour down under unfold, the only reason I bought this book was because it was written by Gideon Haigh who is, in my opinion, the best writer on Cricket around at the moment. This book did not disappoint. It is insightful, uses some terrific descriptive phrases and is witty. A great read for any Cricket lover.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ahead of it's time, 18 Jan 2013
I first read this when I was a teenager and recently re-read it after a lot of life 'experience'! Hugely informative, this gritty realism of professional sport is perhaps a better indicator of what the vast majority of today's journeymen Footballers go through than the ghost written pap of some of the premier league's prima donnas

This is a fantastic read. Profoundly moving, yet humorous and very insightful. A must not just for any serious Football fan, but for anybody interested in knowing what makes a professional sportsman tick.
