Review

Fascinating (Choice)

Delightful new book . . . Brearley has a knack for paying respect to the past without denigrating the present and for calmly considering the future (Mail on Sunday)

Brearley is at his best in these quirky, delightful essays when he is exploring the human qualities of humbler players . . . Brearley's admiration for his friends' decency, craftsmanship and modesty seems to recall a golden age of country cricket (Michael Henderson The Times)

Brearley speaks with understated authority on the matter. His words are all the more powerful for that (Sunday Express)

A treasure of recollections and reactions, talking heroes, controversies and big themes (i paper)

Brearley has a gentle, measured intellect that is warming and intriguing rather than intimidating or irritating . . . Brearley has a rare ability to read the game and its participants with delicacy and precision, like a tailor unpicking a collection of knotted threads (Wisden Cricket Monthly)

His relaxed, dextrous, style achieves what most authors aspire to do: make their narrative sound as though they're speaking directly to the reader . . . His cumulative experience, humour and honesty make for a compelling read. Let's hope for a second volume of On Cricket (Dorset Echo)

Book Description

Insightful and humorous, On Cricket is an intelligent exposition of the game's idiosyncratic culture and its enduring appeal by Mike Brearley, one of England's finest cricket captains.
