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.
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.
