As an avid test match cricket fan this book brings the Ashes to life. Reading about some of the earlier tests has fascinated me. This book is a must for any cricket fan!!!!

With his always intelligent views and amazing ability to transport you back to past Ashes battles with his well chosen words this taster from one of TV's top sports pundits is the perfect aperitif to what every Englishman hopes will be a successful season
Well done Mr Hughes...now can someone buy me this for Xmas please?

The title is misleading. While it does do 10 Test matches in depth, it also gives a good summary of everything which happened in between, i.e. it is a complete history of Ashes cricket. A great read and well researched with anecdotes old and new.m Well done Simon.

For cricket fans with a sense of humour, this really is a brilliant and entertaining read backed with good historical facts and figures from ten pivotal Ashes Test matches spanning from the Victorian era to modern times. There are a few charming photographs and match statistics and scorecards relating to the ten highlighted Tests, however, this is mainly a really good read that branches out to suggest how the ten highlighted Test affected different eras of the history of the Ashes. What I find surprising is that whilst Simon Hughes is so funny and entertaining on the written page, this book and A Hard Lot Of Yakka prove that, he always seems a bit staid and reserved on TV and radio.

Rather disappointing. Merely a rehash of the minutae of old matches; the sort of thing that has been done before and far better. Hughes is an engaging and informed presenter and his previous written output has shown genuine originality and insider information. This book is simply going through the motions. Come on Simon, you can do better than this.

I purchased it online as my christmas gift for my fiance who lives 6000 miles away. He loves the humour and the content. He is a sports person and he loves cricket, he really does and it I can consider this as one of the best gifts I have ever gave to him.

Really interesting read . The thread is the ten matches , but in reality it's an overall history of the Ashes contest . Very informative and very humorous . Highly recommended
