‘A brilliant book…it goes a long way to being the definitive tome on the subject. Outstandingly researched and extremely well written.’
(David Llewellyn Independent
‘In David Frith's Bodyline Autopsy, we relive the crisis of 1932-33 that almost split the Empire...the well-sketched heroes and villains stand out in Frith's history; who says cricket is for gentlemen?’
‘Frith's account is packed with fascinating detail and anecdote. His description of the Test matches could hardly be more gripping.’
(Leo McKinstry Sunday Telegraph
