It's all been said.
Wally Hammond: The Reasons Why - David Foot
The only book by him I own, can anyone recommend another?
Runs in the Memory - Stephen Chalke
A big Chalke fan, and I'm still looking for the follow-up
Fifty Incredible Cricket Matches - Patrick Murphy
I always go on about this one, I don't know anyone else who's even read it though.
Playing With Fire - Nasser Hussain
The best autobiography I've read in the last 10 years. Knocks Stewart, Atherton et al into a cocked hat (whatever that is)
The Joy of Cricket - Various
I'm allowed one compendium aren't I?
The Fast Men/The Slow Men - David Frith
Always consider them as two halves of the same book
Silence of the Heart - David Frith
Looks like I'm another fan doesn't it ...
Fatty Batter - Michael Simkins
The best I've read of its type. First half is better than the second though.
On and off the Field - Ed Smith
A very good 'diary' type book - will get round to reviewing it soon
On Wally there are two that I know one by Ronald Mason (a little boring tbh) and one by Howat also a little long winded.
The Foot one is by far and away the best of the three imo
