This review is from: Jack Hobbs: England's Greatest Cricketer (Hardcover)
I have known Jack Hobbs since I was given my very first Book of British Heroes. As a cricket lover (playing and spectator) and an avid reader, there was a gap in my cricket education namely Sir Jack Hobbs (The Master). This book must have been difficult to write as most of those who actually played with or knew Hobbs during his playing days are no longer with us. The author tries very hard to cover all aspects of the life of Hobbs and actually succeeds although at times, the dialogue is a little mundane.
I venture to suggest that if Hobbs had been playing now, he would have incurred the wrath of the selectors and quite probably have found himself not being selected for England.
Read the book and learn about this fascinating cricketer whose love of life comes over so very well and enjoy. I most certainly did.
