Publishers Description: From the man who was for many years one of the worlds great fast bowlers comes a collection of the best of cricket writing, compiled with Peter Grosvenor of the Daily Express. Truemans favourite writers are included, from Cardus and Fingleton to commentators Brian Johnston and Trevor Bailey. The great heroes of the game are assessed in his introduction to each piece, and he gives his outspoken views of many current topics, from the quality of Englands batting to the proposed four-day county programme and the sorry state of Yorkshire cricket.
