Cricket, as Sam Johnson might have averred, has all that life affords. Almost every aspect is touched upon in this delightful collection. It is the product of wide reading, deep interest and a versatile mind.One of the nicest things I've been asked to sign.There is a treat around every corner . . . this will stay on the bedside table for some time . . . It is a splendid reminder that we have the best game in the world, and the best writers too. Ranges far and wide through the literature of the game . . . almost certainly the only book in history to combine the best bits of Gus Fraser and Charles Dickens. Something for everyone then. - GuardianRead the book if you love cricket or if you love life - or if like so many of us, you believe the two are interchangeable. - ESPNCricinfo
