Product Description

Review

'[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

About the Author

Jimmy Anderson plays first-class cricket for Lancashire and, since bursting onto the scene in 2002-03, has represented England in over 75 Test matches and more than 160 One-Day Internationals. In February 2013, he became England's all-time leading international wicket-taker, overhauling Sir Ian Botham's record of 528.

Premier League book, Premier League cricketer, Premier League town and of course a Premier League Football Team.
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.

OK - it is meant to be an autobiography, but we all know it is ghosted!

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.

I have always wondered what James Anderson is like off the cricket pitch and what goes on in the changing rooms this is one of many books i have read written by cricketeers this is a very good book and would say to anyone who likes cricket themselves to buy the book.
Also other good books are:
Paul Nixons & Graeme Swanns autobiographys and have also just brought Stuart Broads new book to all really good!!!!

James Anderson comes across as a business like bowler there to do a job without time for nice chit chat with the opposition. His book reflects this as he speaks of his no nonsence approach to his cricket. The good times are mentioned namely winning the Ashes as well as the devastating 5 losses to the Australians in 2006/07. The lean times have certainly driven Jimmy to be come the best he can be. Plenty of humour as well to balance the long times away from home and family. All in all an excellent book from one of the world's premier fast bowlers of all time and to be enjoyed by all cricket fans worldwide.

Brilliant read that is interesting throughout. Takes you through all of Jimmy Anderson's good and bad times in depth and with surprising honesty. I will watch him play in a different light now. It covers a lot of cricketing issues and tells you what it's like in the England dressing room. I would recommend to any Cricket Fan, it has something for everyone who watches or plays the game and is still a fine book for those who don't.

I do not usually like biographies published mid career, but James' story is better than average in that regard. The smacking Micheal Clarke round the head with a pad wasnt a well known story...made more interesting by Damian Martyn positively encouraging him! His story, i suspect, will be far more interesting and enlightning post retirement. By then he may well have gone past I Botham as Eng highest wicket taker. An incredible achievement for the lad from Burnley.I wish him well in his quest.
