Archie, I've found a bit more about that Grovel! book.
Sounds quite a good read, think I'll wait for the paperback though.
I don't know if this book has been mentioned already. I have been reading it for the last ew days and it is worth the time in my opinion.
The book is: Bumper by Keith Miller
Being Freddie by Andrew Flintoff is quite good.
Everyone wants to change the world, noone wants to change himself.
Crossing the Boundary by KP, decent book.
Where's my money?
I have just finished reading "More Than a Game" by John Major (former Prime Minister). I liked it. Maybe it doesn't go into much details, but it is very enjoyable.
1) I am not a cricket expert. I am very interested in the history of the game, but I know very little about it.
2) English is not my first language. Although my English is not bad, I don't have the ability to judge the language.
However... I think that John Major provides very good information about the early history of the game. This book gives a good background on what happened till the early 20th century. Of course, for "professional researchers", this book is not enough; however, for people like me, it is very useful. And I think it is also very well written. I really enjoyed reading it (although English is not my first language).
Mark: 3.5 out of 5.
I'm currently rereading The Art of Captaincy by Mike Brearley. Is this too old for a review? IMO one of the classics.
