Highlights of a career in cricket from Britain's favourite umpire.
About the Author
Born in 1933, the son of a miner, Dickie Bird has spent a life `married to cricket`. He was signed up to play for Yorkshire age 19, and played on the county circuit for the next 13 years. In 1979 he became a Test match umpire. The announcement that he would umpire his final Test at Lord`s in June 1996 signalled the end of an international career which has won him worldwide affection as the finest umpire in cricket history.

This was bought for my husband so these are his comments. He did not think this book was as good as the first one, it was all a bit rambling and a bit self congratulating - we all know he is a great umpire! Would not buy again
Dear old Dickie Bird was my favourite umpire of all time and always will be.
I would recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in the game of Cricket.
I have the first book Dickie Bird wrote on the subject of umpiring cricket.
It's almost as though you were sitting in his front room and he was talking just to you over a cuppa ... ! Highly recommended and not just because I'm a Yorkshire lass ... !
