This review is from: Yakking Around the World: A Cricketer's Quest for Love and Utopia (Hardcover)
This is a highly-entertaining, informative and well-written book which I just sat down and read from beginning to end. Whilst travelling to exotic, far-away places to play cricket may sound an enviable life-style for a young man, Simon brilliantly portrays the distinctly unglamorous aspects of this sporting life, as well as examining in some detail and with sometimes brutal honesty the travails of a young man yearning for female companionship. If I have a crticism, it is only that in trying to ensure that he doesn't paint himself as all-conquering macho-man, he is sometimes almost too self-effacing. Honest, entertaining and thoroughly worth buying. I ended up buying four copies for friends - the ideal present to lighten up Christmas !
