This review is from: Keeping Quiet: Paul Nixon: The Autobiography (Hardcover)
Anecdotally, I've noticed that autobiographies written by players who were not quite amongst the world's elite are more engaging than those by the mega-stars. Paul Nixon's account of his long career as a professional cricketer is one such.
The style is chatty, relaxed; it's as though you were together in a pub one long evening. He relates his anecdotes around the structure of his career, and they're always interesting enough to keep you entertained. He - or the ghost, at any rate - has the raconteur's art of progressive revelation.
There is one tale - the seance story - that does strain credulity, but I really don't think that matters. His account of several close encounters with match fixing is shocking.
I don't understand the title - maybe it's just intended as an ironic reference to his on-pitch persona?
All in all, well worth getting a copy.
