Become a cricket convert
This book really explains the romance of cricket which one really cannot understand without seeing the origins of the obese, middle-aged who go misty eyed at the sights, sounds and smells of bat and willow. This book has helped me feel positive about the strange world that my children are so attracted by and hugely entertained me in the process.

Wide, no ball and four overthows
I wanted to love this but, I found it boring, trite, tired and unfunny. For a cricket lover to not know the correct story behind the Ashes just sealed it for me. However, I'm glad Andy Babington got a mention.
