    It is a really good account of a club cricket season. I am sure that most club cricketers could relate to most of it.
    Think I might have played against Gideon Haigh about 4 years ago. Definently played against a lower grade South Yarra side.

    Bodyline Autopsy by David Frith is excellent as is Corner of a foreign field by Ramachandra Guha, its about indian cricket and how it and india developed together.

    Great books both, I thought about a review of the latter, but it would be a big task because of the amount of information

    I thoroughly enjoyed Duncan Fletcher's book - mainly because I used to be a coach and placed a huge emphasis on continuity and positive thought processes myself.

    I have read bits of A History of West Indies cricket by Michael Manly so I would probably understand it.

    I have the book at home but haven't had a chance ot read it (reading about four different books at once)

    Some say it would have been twice the book if it was half the size. Others rate it one of the three best books ever written on the game

    Was Manly once the PM of one of the WI Islands?
