Ian Botham's bestselling autobiography is an explosive blend of sex and drug allegations, personal upheavals, confrontations with peers and remarkable record-breaking feats. Voted favourite cricketer of the 20th century in a recent survey, Botham's outstanding contribution to the game, both as a player and an outspoken commentator for Sky television, makes for compelling reading.
In this fully revised and updated edition, Botham laments the continued decline of English cricket while putting forward his argument for a change in the selectorial process. Away from the game, he writes about his most recent charity walk for Leukaemia Research and where he sees his long-term future.
'Plenty of indiscretion, malice and comedy'
'Catches the authentic flavour of the man'
'The juggernaut of sports autobiographies'
Ian Botham was the most thrilling sight in sport for nearly two decades at the top of international cricket. He retired from the game in 1993 and has since acted as coaching advisor to the England team on the 1997/98 Zimbabwe and New Zealand tour, a commentator for Sky TV, and has a newspaper column in the Daily Mirror. He continues to be a keen analyser of the game.
Peter Hayter is the cricket correspondent of the Mail on Sunday. Formerly football correspondent of Sportsweek magazine, he has also written for the Observer and the Independent. He has collaborated with Botham on his bestselling autobiography, and the Botham Report.
