If you like cricket, books on aspects of cricket history and cricket memoir are wonderfully entertaining as they tell a good story. However, most such books fail to give the reader much insight or understanding of the complexities that you need to understand the essentially simple game of cricket. Overlapping on both historical text and memoir, Brearley's book fills that gap perfectly. Cricket has countless nuances and Brearley expertly covers most of them here, in a way that not only entertains but informs. No other cricket book I have read covers tactics, strategies and tips as thoroughly as this one. Not suitable as an introduction to cricket in itself but an essential text for those wishing to further understand the subtleties of cricket.

I've meant to read this book for over 20 years. I found it on Amazon by accident and didn't realise it was still in print. The book arrived within 3 days and is mint. Every cricket fan should have a copy. The man is a genius at man management.

Brearley's talents as a leader are well known and he illustrates them here though his writing style is rather discursive which is annoying at times.
