So much more than a cricket book,
This review is from: Wasted!: The Incredible True Story of Cricket's First Rock 'n' Roll Star (Hardcover)
Whilst the many laudotory press reviews I have seen of this book tend to focus (perhaps not surprisingly given that they are generally reviewed by sports writers) on the shocking elements of Paul's brutally honest story as it relates to drug use and the playboy lifestyles endemic within the domestic game, this book has so much more to offer; a man with the world at his feet who threw everything away only to find salvation helping kids on the other side of the world.
A fresh, honest and courageous book both moving and entertaining, and the closest book I have read to showing the world of club cricket as I suspect it really is.
