Former Middlesex and England cricketer Simon Hughes returns with another humorous and well written book this time covering his time as a sportswriter and commentator. One of his previous books ‘A Lot Of Hard Yakka’ won the William Hill Sports Book Award. He writes in a easy to read style with little pen portraits of key people involved in cricket, like Richie Benaud and Mike Gatting (who gets plenty of stick throughout the book) plus other sports he’s covered including football and golf. Even if you are not a big cricket fan there is much to enjoy in here including his time as the Analyst in the recent ashes series. Well worth a read for any fan of well written and entertaining sports books.
