Four More Weeks: Diary of a Stand In Captain
Four More Weeks: Diary of a Stand In Captain
Price: £2.81

5.0 out of 5 stars great read., 21 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The diary of a season is a tried and trusted format of cricket literature . The beauty is in the detail , and there is enough here to make this book a real gem . Written in the classic cricketing year of 2005 it details the season from a county point of view with Ramps as stand in Surrey skipper , but with many reflections on the England Australia Test series . Lots of interesting insights into dressing room problems , personality problems within a team environment , and the general wearing down process of day to day cricket . Well written , thoughtful , great read .

Conversations with Clint: Paul Nelson's Lost Interviews with Clint Eastwood, 1979-1983
Price: £10.49

4.0 out of 5 stars for the most part Nelson is just a fan like many of us, 27 Mar. 2016

Interesting story behind the interviews , and the interviews are interesting in themselves . Not sure they quite live up to an implied billing of lost masterpiece , for the most part Nelson is just a fan like many of us , but well worth a read . Lots of stuff on Eastwood's own films and some asides on other directors and actors : John Wayne , Errol Flynn , Woody Allen , Cary Grant , Hitchcock , Bogart , Steve McQueen etc

A Flick of the Fingers: The Chequered Life and Career of Jack Crawford
A Flick of the Fingers: The Chequered Life and Career of Jack Crawford
Price: £9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best cricket biographies of recent times, 17 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Superb book , highly recommended . Very readable account of the life of possibly the least well known of all England's great all rounders . Crawford's life and career might just be the most interesting and intriguing of all the "Golden Age" Cricketers . As a casual reader can't comment on some of the detail raised in the one star review below , and there remains an air of mystery about some of the twists and turns of Crawford's life , but the narrative flows beautifully and Michael Burns goes out of his way to tell us how Crawford played , rather then the usual run through of stats and scorecards which bore in so many sports books .

5.0 out of 5 stars Golfing Classic, 14 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Men in Green (Kindle Edition)
Reads like a bookend to Bamberger's classic from the early 90s "To the Linksland" . Again incorporates a journey , this time with friend and journeyman pro Mike Donald to track down a list of legends . Bamberger is a true golf insider , having caddied on different tours , as well as a great writer . He worries away and returns to various moral themes arising from the game and it's rules , inparticular the US Masters dispute between Arnold Palmer and ken Venturi , until solving them to his own satisfaction . In a different class to most golf books and highly reommended .

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Golf Digest flip book allowing you to flick through ..., 28 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Golf Power In Motion (Hardcover)
Excellent Golf Digest flip book allowing you to flick through and look at separate frames of six of the greatest players of the time (pub 1967) : Jack Nicklaus , Sam Snead , Billy Casper , Gary Player , Doug Ford , Julius Boros . You can compare the position of all six players at a particular point in the swing across two facing pages . Way ahead of its time as a golf publication . Perhaps surprisingly Gary Players swing bears the closest scrutiny , very athletic with more than a touch of Ben Hogan from the top . Accompanying text includes some general swing instruction .
