    Archie, I've found a bit more about that Grovel! book.

    Sounds quite a good read, think I'll wait for the paperback though.

    Does sound good, I will wait for the OZ release, it seems the author is in to soccer, but I won't hold that against him
    You know it makes sense.

    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.

    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.

    Reading that one right now, although I am only 20 pages in, out of 5 how much would you give it?

    There are 2 things you don't have to forget.

    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.
