Cricket, fun!!!!!

A real adventure, who would have thought that touring the world, bring all corners the wonderful game of cricket could be so hard.
If I had run into so many problems I would have given up, but not this team of Sunday no-hopers, they press on with their travels, and thank goodness for that, as they stumble from one problem to another the humour keeps comming.
A well described journey, equally well read.
From begining to end, a real hoot.

How can you not love him

Johnners! how can anyone not love him. A British institution, a loveble character but above all, the voice of TMS.
Here we get an insight behind the scenes of Test Match Special.
The controversy, the fun and the rigors of putting the program together.
This is not just a book about Johnners though, Agnew goes into detail of his own career and also other presenters of TMS.
A very good listern for lovers of the program and also cricket.

1st Class

I listened to this book over the course of 2 night shift and was annoyed everytime someone spoke to me.
This is a 1st class book, well written, and well read.
The story of a quiet man who just wanted to enjoy playing cricket, if only life was that simple.
Both touching and amusing if you like cricket history you will love this book.

The voice of Rugby speaks

Bill McLaren, the voice of rugby.
Read, by the great man, with both passion and humour.
A real incite into a life lived to the full, doing something he enjoyed, and getting paid!
