2.0 out of 5 stars A simple argument, 25 Jun. 2013

For cricket fans, this would be a reasonable read for reason of debate. A case is built, somewhat slowly, throughout the book to justify why the South African cricket team are 'chokers.' Why they have yet to perform in any international limited overs competition, anything close to their world ranking.

The conclusions drawn and reasons given in the final chapters are overall somewhat disappointing. After the author put in so much effort to build what I thought might turn out to be an interesting argument, he floundered at the end. Sad, but true.

For cricket fans in general and Proteas fans in particular, this will remind you of memorable detail and anecdotes of the SA cricket story. For anybody else, there is seemingly no point.

3.0 out of 5 stars Journalistic opinion, 10 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Art of Losing: Why the Proteas Choke at the Cricket World Cup (Paperback)
With a title like this, the author comes up with his opinion loosely based on conjecture rather fact. Still if you're the pro and cons type of guy, the conclusion of education being the root of all evil, including the staffers losing at the world cup, won't be too much of a surprise.
