The best I've ever read.,
By A Customer
This review is from: A Lot of Hard Yakka: Triumph and Torment - A County Cricketer's Life (Paperback)
I am young and I don't read much and I was given this book for a present. I didn't even pick it up for ages but once I started reading it I found it fascinating. You discover the most bizarre stories which made me laugh for ages and discover some of the biggest characters in the game. You realise the lack of motivation in cricketers as well which is what possibly leads to our national side's continued failure. Hughes takes you through all the emotions of being a professional cricketer, both on and off the field. This book is so easy to follow and so fascinating to read. I've started reading the second book which is good but not quite as good as this book and I'm going to have to read it again soon!
