Review:

`Engaging, insightful and laced with wry humour, it's easy to see why Mike Atherton's writing scoops handfuls of those fancy journalism awards each year... A Test captain just a decade ago, Atherton nonetheless writes from the standpoint of a dispassionate observer, unafraid to criticise those in power. This insider/outsider perspective is part of what makes Glorious Summers & Discontents - a collection of his writing - a superb book... fascinating read' --Sport Magazine...even when one disagrees with Atherton there remains the sense of encountering a civilised, intelligent human being for whom cricket is not just a game but an expression of wider values' --Wisden Cricket
