A Masterly Portrayal of the Master,
This review is from: Jack Hobbs (Paperback)
An excellent book on an excellent subject. My opinion of the saintly Jack Hobbs and the scholarly but readable Leo McKinistry is enhanced by this book - my favourite passage being the Oval Test of 1926. Read it! McKinistry, out of his inherent fairness, does not duck the less pleasant sides of Hobbs - but he finds it very difficult. Jack was a lovely man, and how I wish I had seen him bat.
