5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational and emotional - the best cricket biography you'll read, 13 July 2012
This review is from: Harold Larwood (Paperback)
Like most cricket fans, I knew all about the Bodyline series and its affect on the game thereafter, but this book goes beyond that, taking you on a beautiful journey following the man most often associated with the events of the 1932/33 Ashes series, not just his cricketing career, but his life before and long after.

Opinion is still divided as to Douglas Jardine's real intentions almost 80 years ago, but having read this book, you'd be hard pressed to find a bad word to say about Harold Larwood, either as an outstanding cricketer or true gentleman.

I don't mind admitting that there were tears in my eyes at several points in the book - it is a very touching account of one man's life, the values he held and the impact he had on the game.

Highly recommended - read it and be proud to be English.
