4.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable read (even for a Pommie whinger like myself), 16 Aug 2007
By 
This review is from: Ashes Frontline: The Ashes War Diaries of Steve Harmison and Justin Langer (Autobiography/Personalities) (Hardcover)
As well as both co-author's Ashes diaries, this book contains a detailed, impartial overview of each day of each Ashes match, along with accompanying previews and epilogues. The text is accompanied by some impressive photography that really aids in setting the scene for the historic series.

In terms of the authors themselves, Langer's passages are honest (he even admits to embarassment at the scale of his post-victory celebrations and an accompanying apology to opposing captain Andrew Flintoff) and reveal much about his decision to retire at the end of the series. Harmison's passages are very illuminating, showing perhaps what he would be less willing to confess in an interview scenario, most tellingly his empathy with Marcus Trescothick's difficulties on tour.

It isn't the most in-depth analysis, but it gives a balanced view, an insight into both dressing rooms, and some stunning visual accompaniment to aid the imagination of each and every reader.
