Synopsis

My Favourite Cricketer by John Stern

My Favourite Cricketer features a selection of the finest writing taken from The Wisden Cricketer magazine. Top-quality sports writers and celebrated cricket fans fondly recall their most admired player past or present, and explain their choice of cricketing hero. The player selection ranges from the obvious choices - such as Trueman, Atherton, Gough, Tendulkar and Sobers - to the more intriguing or humble. Contributors including Gideon Haigh, Duncan Hamilton, Sid Waddell, Stephen Tompkinson and CMJ all present the case for their favourite cricketer and explain just what it is that makes them so special. Each piece is accompanied by stunning full-colour photography of the player in action. My Favourite Cricketer shows the breadth of cricket's enduring appeal and presents a record of the most cherished and larger-than-life characters.

Reviews

This is writing for kindred spirits... Superb photographs... 46 very different, personal, heartfelt essays... Wisden produce few books, but when they do, they make it count... Lovely book... If you are looking for a reasonably priced birthday present for a cricket nut then your search is over. Buzzin Cricket May 2010 '...an elegantly produced book.
Wisden Cricketer, July 2010

'It is a gem of a book, one I have read and re-read since it landed in my pigeon-hole at work. Good writers on great cricketers. They may not be as succinct as the statisticians, but they are a hell of a lot more revealing.'
The Spin, Guardian

If you LOVE reading then you will love LOVEREADING! It's a 'novel' idea. Seriously though I could not recommend them enough.

Rebecca Whymark

I recommend Lovereading because you get honest reviews on a whole range of genres-there's something for everyone. It's the only site I need.

What can I say, the clue is in the title Lovereading - and awesome books.

My horizons have been broadened by some of the books I have been lucky to review and I expect it to be no different in the future.

It's the first site that I visit when deciding on the next set of books to buy. A particular treat is being able to download an extract.
