5.0 out of 5 stars Superb!, 18 Oct 2006

This review is from: Arm-ball to Zooter: A Sideways Look at the Language of Cricket (Hardcover)
Brilliant. I love Booth's stuff in the Guardian and this is even better. He manages to inform and entertain at the same time, which is a rare skill. Each entry contains a - usually very good - gag and the cross-referencing is addictive. His enthusiasm for the game always shines through.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding, 2 Oct 2006
This review is from: Arm-ball to Zooter: A Sideways Look at the Language of Cricket (Hardcover)
Lawrence Booth is one of the brightest young cricket writers in England and this is a splendid book: witty, informative, often laugh-out-loud funny and oozing class.

This review is from: Arm-ball to Zooter: A Sideways Look at the Language of Cricket (Hardcover)
Not a huge cricket fan but was given this for christmas by someone who thinks I should be, and have really enjoyed dipping in and out of it ever since. Funny, informative, sharp and easy to digest. For me, the perfect toilet book - and that's no insult!!!
