About the Author:

Simon Lister is a BBC senior news producer and a cricket writer. His first book was Supercat, the authorized biography of Clive Lloyd, which was short-listed for the British Sports Book of the Year award. He has covered county cricket for the Sunday Telegraph and written about the game in the Financial Times. He is also a regular broadcaster about cricket matters on Radio 4.

Review:

"I doubt there will be a better book written about this period in West Indies cricket history" -- Clive Lloyd "Outstanding... Lister's book works magnificently not just because he tells a great story with unfussy clarity and journalistic rigour but because - like the best sports books - it is not content to stick to sport." -- Richard Whitehead The Times "A perceptive and comprehensive account that more than cricket knows" -- Gideon Haigh "Calm and fair, but with pace and bounce, the story of the most feared team cricket has ever seen" -- Matthew Engel "As near definitive as you could want...expert and knowledgeable" -- Danny Kelly Observer "The best cricket book since Beyond A Boundary by CLR James. I am completely intrigued by the fact that it is set in a historical and social context over an extended period and brings to the fore, so many of the thoughts I had as a young man in pre and post-independent Jamaica. It should be obligatory reading for every West Indian but especially those young aspiring West Indian cricketers" -- Pat Rousseau, former President, West Indies Cricket Board "One of the best sports books I've read in years" -- Simon Kuper "The chapter on fast bowling in Fire In Babylon is the best thing you'll read this year. If you read it. Please do read it." -- Rob Smyth, Guardian/Daily Telegraph sportswriter
