This is an utterly charming read. Like I suspect many cricket fans, I was aware of WG Grace from an early age, but only vaguely aware of his achievements. Robert Low fills in the gaps here and paints a wonderful picture, not only of Grace but of the period he inhabited. Having just endured a dreadful winter, with a risible performance in the on going pantomime the passes for the England team and the ECB these days, I have been enchanted by this highly recommendable book. One can almost feel the breeze of long gone summers on one's back, as the good Dr comes to the crease. What he'd make of the current debacle, Pieterson, Swann et al is anyone's guess, but even a 100 years after his death, if the ECB considered 1, what would Grace do? and 2, did that, we wouldn't go far wrong. Charming book. A delight from cover to (extra) cover

Undoubtedly one of the best cricketers of all time, and the sport's first superstar, WG Grace is the embodiment of all that is Victorian cricket. Low tells the story of Grace's life in a pleasant and readable biography. He quashes some of the myths and puts flesh on the bones of some of the interesting stories and anecdotes about his life. I particularly enjoyed the sections on Grace's tours abroad and the creation of the London County Cricket Club. Well-researched and well-written, this is a good explanation as to why WG Grace is such a cricketing icon.
