The book goes through almost every country and territory in the world from A-Z for any country that's ever been mentioned in that part of Wisden, with the full CRTW entry from a particular year reproduced, and for about half of these entries, there's new editorial content (updates since the original article, corrections, more information or reflections), usually quite a bit longer than the entry itself was, while still keeping the same spirit of the quirky, obscure and intriguing from the original pieces. A joy to read.
