5.0 out of 5 stars Warm and thoroughly entertaining, 2 Nov 2010

This review is from: Thanks, Johnners: An Affectionate Tribute to a Broadcasting Legend (Audio CD)
An enormous number of books have been written about cricket over the years, some wonderful, some less so. This book sits happily in the former category. At a time when books by current and former players tumble from the bookshelves, it is rare to find one written by a former player that is so full of wit, insight and candour. But, of course, Jonathan Agnew is not just a former player but also the knowledgeable and engaging BBC Cricket Correspondent and presenter of Test Match Special.

Weaving anecdotes, reminiscences and musings about cricket issues around the central theme of the book, a tribute to the much loved former TMS presenter, Brian Johnston, works very well indeed. Few people could have written so knowledgeably about Johnners, with such a warm and entertaining style that is entirely in keeping with Johnners' own nature. The book that results is a pleasure to read, and I recommend it to anyone with any interest in cricket, and in understanding how it -- and indeed, how life -- should be played.
