Jonathan Agnew has chosen a selection of writings on cricket, old and new, that all watchers and students of cricket will appreciate - a wonderful compendium compiled with great care, and obvious affection, by one of the current day's most authoritative commentators.
A book to be savoured, and kept after reading, to be dipped into time and time again.

My review is of the "Audible" download. It is a well-selected anthology. I have thoroughly enjoyed it. My only complaint is directed at the narrator. He clearly has little or no knowledge of cricket. This is clearly evidenced by some appalling errors in pronunciation of the names of extremely well-known cricketers.
An eclectic mix of cricket writing, covering all aspects of the game. The authors introduces each article to set the scene, so even if you have read some of the passages in previous books there is enough fresh material to keep you interested. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole book.
