      A larger than life character, a show man and one of the most versatile all-rounders Sir Ian Terence Botham has carved out an enduring niche for himself in the world of cricket.

      Some interesting nuggets and genuinely 'page turning' passages makes this worth a one time read. Nothing more, nothing less.

      Born with a natural genius for cricket, Botham began breaking records with bat and ball from a young age and soon became the man English cricket expected most from.

      Typical Beefy style book. He wears his heart on his sleeve. Completely honest and straight talk. We get a full measure of his genius, super confidence and also the measure of the man himself, warts and all. Bold and open autobiography!!

      An entertaining book that gives an insight into the life of an enigma. Some sorties need to be taken with a pinch of salt though.
