Why change a successful format?,
This review is from: Cricketer's Who's Who 2011 (Paperback)I look forward to receiving my Cricketer's Who's Who each year but I was rather disappointed yesterday when my 2011 edition arrived. The format has changed considerably and there is a lot less personal information about the players. Instead there is some blurb from All out Cricket about each player and a short quote from somebody connected to their team. I think it's a shame the players no longer get the opportunity to include their thoughts on the game and I don't suppose I'm the only who was interested in knowing more about them than their cricketing statistics. The overall feel of the book was not as nice either, like it was printed on cheaper paper. If they don't change the format back next time, I doubt I will continue to buy one each year.

I couldn't agree more. I was so disappointed by this year's edition. I had expected real information about the cricketers not whole pages with someone's opinion. There is less about each player than Playfair which will now be my preferred source book. The format looks cheap, the photos could be photocopies, the spine feels as though it is about to crack, the paper is rubbish. The only good point in its favour is the Other Teams section. Because of that inclusion I will give it 1 star. My husband kindly buys this for me every year but if it hasn't changed next year I shall tell him not to bother.
