“Top quality sports journalism which transfers very successfully to tape.”
Suffolk Journal January 1997

From the Back Cover:

A selection from Michael Parkinson's award-winning series of interviews and features in the 'Daily Telegraph', compromising a unique gallery of profiles of sporting heroes past and present.

There are revealing conversations with star players at the peak of their sporting lives: an unusually talkative Ellery Hanley before his fifth Wembley final and a refreshing Laura Davies, number 1 in the world and still talking about fun. There is the cricketer Derek Randall, in his 22nd and final season with Notts and a fascinating encounter with the legendary George Best: Some vintage dazzlers such as Denis Compton, Tom Finney and Keith Miller, an affectionate portrait of the great Dickie Bird – twitchy but full of laughter, the best umpire in the world, his hunched figure sculpted by a life-time's dedication to cricket, and a posthumous tribute to departed giant Bobby Moore who epitomized the very best of British football and the highest ideals of sportsmanship.
