9780001979208: Botham (Sporting Heroes)

The story of the world's greatest all-rounder for children. Carefully abridged and adapted for children of nine and upwards, here is the story of a larger than life character - the triumphs, the achievements and the setbacks of a remarkable career both on and off the cricket pitch.

Review:

‘The cricket book of the year’
The Times

‘Plenty of indiscretion, malice and comedy’
Daily Telegraph

From the Back Cover:

Ian Botham's bestselling autobiography is an explosive blend of sex and drug allegations, personal upheavals, confrontations with peers and remarkable record-breaking feats. Voted favourite cricketer of the 20th century in a recent survey, Botham's outstanding contribution to the game, both as a player and an outspoken commentator for Sky television, makes for compelling reading.

In this fully revised and updated edition, Botham laments the continued decline of English cricket while putting forward his argument for a change in the selectorial process. Away from the game, he writes about his most recent charity walk for Leukaemia Research and where he sees his long-term future.
