Put me down as another fan of Gideon Haigh. His book 'Mystery Spinner' about the somewhat tragic Jack Iverson was a fantastic read because it wasn't just an autobiography. It also has quite an amazing photo on the front-cover of Jack Iverson's grip.
As for the most entertaining book I've read, well Timmie Zoehrer's 'The Gloves Are Off' was the biggest laugh I've had in years. Imagine a cricketing autobiography written by a 9/11 conspiracist and you get an idea of how paranoid, how bitter and how inane the whole thing is. I mean, his treatment by the infamous WACA heirarchy was poor but geez........
I just HAVE to provide a sample;
"The instigators of the plot to remove me from behind the wickets for WA had achieved their objective."
"But now I know the reasons behind the conspiracy to remove me from the Western Warriors and it is blatantly clear that Foster and his co-selectors were only puppets in the whole affair."
A ghost writer may have been a good idea.........
The one I feel most sorry for is Alec Stewart; he wrote the foreword and I don't think he'd be looking back at that decision with a great deal of satisfaction these days.
