5.0 out of 5 stars This one hits the boundary., 9 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was a pleasant surprise. A very,very funny travel book with a bit of cricket thrown in. There is even a commentary on what it means to be English,Scottish,Irish and British in the present day - but even this is dealt with in a very humourous way.

I particularly loved the descriptions of trying to enter the stadium in Brisbane, nativity celebrations in Perth and celebrating the new year in Sydney.

This is easily one of the best books about sports spectating as a holiday choice I have ever read.

I am a cricket fan so I'm guessing that this book would still appeal to non-cricket fans. I hope so as travel books go it does deserve to reach a wide audience. Reminds me very much of the writing of Pete McCarthy and Stuart Maconie - and that is very much a compliment.

If you can't take Stuart Croll on holiday with you this is the next best thing.

Thoroughly recommended.
