As a firm believer that the Author has serious claims to being the GLE (Greatest Living Englishman) I have to give him the 5 stars. Mind you I could point out that on the bookshelf above the desk in front of me is another work from the same hand (albeit guided by Martin Johnson rather than Simon Wilde) which bears a remarkable similarity to the first half of this one - it's entitled "Gower - The Autobiography" (even some of the photos are the same). Mind you, I see that in 1992 the said book cost me £14.99 whereas now, courtesy of the electronic world in which we live, the new instalment was considerably cheaper!

Gower writes rather like the way he batted: a slow starter, but with plenty of style and flair.

DG is a fragile character, yet with his 100% honesty he's a strong man. A joy to read for cricket folk, without being inaccessible for others.

Detailed, interesting, witty, full of insight into life as a cricketer and now commentator.

Enough detail to keep you interested.

Written as he commentates on Sky. Laconic and amusing. Enjoyed his anti establishment position on the controversial incidents of his career. Good read.

This book had everything I expected from David's playing days to his TV commentaries - a must for all real cricket lovers.
