'David Gower, England batting great turned Sky presenter, compares himself with Kevin Pietersen as a man apart in the dressing room in his new book An Endangered Species, published yesterday. Gower also revisits his hugely difficult relationship with Graham Gooch, now England's battling coach, when they were the two marquee players in the Test side'-- Charles Sale, Daily Mail
'In his just published second autobiography, An Endangered Species (with the excellent Simon Wilde) Gower talks about doubts that drove him close to despair. The light-hearted prank with the Tiger Moth turns out to be a watershed incident in his life, something from which he never fully recovered. Gower is an extremely pleasant fellow. We share an interest in Wildlife, especially African, and both do stuff for the World Land Trust. I have known him for 25 years; never well, but I suspect for many people much closer to him, there's always something rather unknowable about him. Amazing, then, that he's dropped his guard a little in this book' --Simon Barnes, The Times
