Only for Fans,
This review is from: Boycott: The Autobiography (Paperback)
I could well imagine that a reader who is not a Boycott fan will not enjoy the near-constant griping about how everyone was against the personality. If you can put this aside, this a great insight into the mind of a great cricketer. There is no mention of the women in Boycott's life - one or two stories there that I would like to hear his side of - but there are plenty of tales of the politics and personalities who dominated Yorkshire cricket in the Boycott era and of the struggle against them.
At times he puts himself over as one of the greatest batsmen of all time, at other times you see that he is also human. I can definately recommend this book to anyone who either admires the man or has yet to form an opinion. It is not the ghost-written list of dates, events and opinions that so many sporting biographies become.
