This review is from: Cricket, Lovely Cricket?: An Addict's Guide to the World's Most Exasperating Game (Paperback)
I'd read Lawrence's other book, or at least it was a 'toilet book', and so I was drawn to this more conventional work, being a sportsfan and a follower of Lawrence's work online.
Its just as good (better, even) as the easy wit of The Spin, his weekly cricket column, and is full of name-dropping, jokes, etc. All funny and accessible.
I love my sports books, and for once I don't feel like I'm being spoken down to. Mr Booth is happy for us to join us in his world. He welcomes us in.
Write something else and I'll pop in again!
