Publisher's Summary

Highlights of a career in cricket from Britain's favourite umpire. Hardly a week goes by without Dickie Bird visiting a county or Test match arena where he can keep up to date with all that is happening in the cricket world, while at the same time taking the opportunity to reflect, in the company of old friends and acquaintances, on his own colourful contribution to the sport that lasted for over half a century.
Dickie remains the most famous umpire of them all and is still highly respected throughout the world. A lovable eccentric with a joyful sense of fun, he has decided, as he approaches his 80th birthday, to recall the highlights of his life in cricket, while also providing an illuminating insight into what he has been up to since his retirement.
