This review is from: Saving The Test (Kindle Edition)
So much sport non-fiction is either tedious ghost-written junk, or the good idea of a super-fan stretched far beyond its capabilities so that the funny first chapter is long forgotten by the time you give up. This book reminds us that a good journalist, writing with knowledge, clarity and an understanding of how to bring wider themes together, can produce a compelling and enjoyable piece.
Mike Jakeman writes wonderfully. This book brings to mind a good New Yorker article, taking a topic you may have thought little about and making it captivating and important.
