I do enjoy his lighter writings even though he "is too full of himself ".
Perhaps it's an age dependent thing - I was 16 in 1976 and the way the book reawakened long forgotten memories of mine is one of its great strengths - if I'd been 6 or 26 it may have been different.
Anyway it's a good job we don't all like the same things - for what it's worth I'm with Archie on the 4.5 stars

That (as nearly everyone has said at some time or another) is it. Sleep deprivation's obviously taking its toll. I am off to bed.
I have The Oxford Companion to Australian Cricket which is edited by him but I didn't even notice his name on it, frank;y.
On seeing your post I checked and found that he has written a book on Lokmanya Tilak, an Indian political leader of the 19th century as well as co-authored a book on Spofforth with Arlott. Quite a varied list that.
