'[Jimmy's] witty and irreverent side, seen so hilariously in Graeme Swann's video diary during the 2010-11 Ashes, is much in evidence…There is also honesty about his part in the excessive drinking that winter, culminating in the 'Fredalo' affair at the World Cup, but more interestingly about his shy character, about the young fast bowler who has, with the help of England psychologist Mark Bawden, recognised a split personality. There is Jimmy, the nasty, snarling fast bowler on the field and then there is James, the loving, devoted family man. Sometimes Bawden complains he has seen too much 'James' on the field, that Anderson has been too friendly. Let's hope that is not the case this winter…' - Steve James, The Daily Telegraph --Steve James, The Daily Telegraph

Well done Jimmy, for keeping up the standards.
Joking apart, this is an excellent read, without 'big I am' that you get with many autobiographies. Stories that you don't usually hear about, funny in places, but very believable.
Anderson is refreshingly honest without looking to settle scores and it really comes through how much playing for Lancashire and England means to him, and what hard work it is to perform at the highest level.
Also other good books are:
Paul Nixons & Graeme Swanns autobiographys and have also just brought Stuart Broads new book to all really good!!!!
