Product description

Review

Bracingly honest about the brutal nature of professional cricket, The Times

He is England's greatest ever batsman...but behind that choirboy exterior, Cook is as tough as tugboats, a man who has spent his life doing one of the hardest, scariest jobs in sports - opening the batting in Test cricket. This hugely enjoyable book gives you an idea of quite how challenging it is, and makes you see that finding a replacement for "The Chef" at the top of England's batting order won't be any picnic, Sports Books of the Year Daily Mail

Hugely enjoyable, Sport Books of the Year, Daily Mail

A fascinating and layered book which delves into the psychological challenges of the game . . . a timely read at the end of an exhilarating yet flawed summer for English cricket, Guardian

The best books to buy sports fans this Christmas, Daily Telegraph

It makes for fascinating reading, as the former England captain recounts what it took to succeed at the top of his game - and reveals what made him decide to hang up his whites at the relatively early age of 33, Radio Times

Reveals Cook as a teak-tough, mentally powerful competitor . . . Brutally honest insight into professional sport at the highest level, Press Association

Cricket legend Alastair Cook's remarkably candid autobiography reveals the pressures of playing the sport at the highest level for more than a decade, Choice

He details the complexity of the process, from technique to mental agonies, to draining team politics . . . there are also lots of endearing behind-the-scenes details, Strong Words

Sir Alastair reveals his more ruthless and passionate sides in a book more probing than most sport biogs, Daily Mirror --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Book Description

Alastair Cook is England's greatest ever cricket player and this is his awe-inspiring memoir. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
