Reviews

'The one thing that shines throughout an entertaining and witty read is Blofeld's marked respesct for the game of cricket and its composite parts.' -- The Independent 20011211 Blofeld has a strong feeling for the history of the magnificent game, but his wicked humour and sense of fun can all too often disguise an encyclopaedic knowledge. This is a canter through many of the well-worn tales that surround the game, with a good measure of the more obscure.' -- Yorkshire Post 20011211 'As one would expect, Blofeld's new book is ripe with choiceness of opinion and observation ... of Alec Stewart: 'a magificent cricketer, but a captain who made Ethelred the Unready look hot stuff.' -- Eastern Daily Press 20011211 'His enthusiasm for the game is contagious and he has a rare wit, clearly influenced by his love of one of the greatest humourists of the last century, PG Wodehouse.' -- Telegraph & Argus 20011211 'Written with Henry Blofeld's contagious sense of humour, CRICKET AND ALL THAT shows cricket as a game that has had a profound effect on the very structure of English life.' -- Bolton Evening News 20011211 A highly readable and impressively factual account. -- The Cricketer 20020401 '...the Blofeld legend provides us all with some warmth and cheer. This book, the great mann's take on the history of the game, is well up to standard. It takes the game at a rattling pace from its medieval oriigins to the present day.' -- Simon Heffer, Country Life 20011220
