Review:

This is a brilliant book, encompassing themes way beyond the narrow confines of sport - Times. A magnificently written, intensely moving story of that rarest of breeds - a great England fast bowler...If you want to know why the Ashes matter, you could do worse than lose yourself for a few days in the story of this great and humble man - Michael Atherton, The Times. This is cricket biography of the highest stamp, fit to compare in recent memory with Gideon Haigh's excavation of the life of Jack Iverson, David Foot's dramatic revisionism on Wally Hammond and Leo McKinstry's remarkably even-handed portrait of Geoff Boycott. Five stars.' Wisden Cricketer. Vivid portrayal of his subject ... an excellent cricket biography, one of the best of recent times. Thoroughly recommended' All Out Cricket. One of the most dramatic sporting stories of all time' Sport magazine. The first biography of Larwood the scapegoat, a great bowler but a stubborn man, Hamilton has filled the gap magnificently' Sunday Times.
