This review is from: The Little Wonder: The Remarkable History of Wisden (Hardcover)
As a history of the first 150 years of Wisden this book is factually interesting but it is written in a style that makes it like watching a Geoffrey Boycott innings-hard going.The book itself is in the form of past Wisdens with very few illustrations which makes it a collectors item rather than a good read.I cannot help thinking that had Bloomsbury produced a glossy covered paperback at a more appealing price they could have sold a lot more copies.Nevertheless as a cricket lover it will take a prominent place on my bookshelves to dip into now and again especially during the depths of a winter evening.
