Review:

"The material is thoughtfully and even-handedly arranged, so that no major figure or issue is missed out. Every cricket fan will find their own favourite anecdote here" (Daily Telegraph)

Synopsis:

The Ashes, the symbol of cricket supremacy between England and Australia, is the game's oldest and fiercest rivalry, still hot to the touch after a century and a quarter. "The Book of Ashes Anecdotes" collects hundreds of the best stories from more than 260 publications to create the fullest, fieriest and funniest account of these two nations divided by a common game. In 2005, and after 16 long years, England's cricketers regained the fabled urn in a series that fascinated and gripped cricket fans as never before. The drama of this contest raised ancitipation about the 2006-07 series to record levels, and "Ashes Anecdotes" provides an unrivalled collection of the highlights of this celebrated tournament. The book includes a foreword by David Frith and extracts from the best cricket writers of the past 124 years. Featured here are the giants of the game, the most memorable Ashes matches, gamesmanship, Bodyline, tales of travel, cricket fever and fan fanaticism, luck and superstition in the game, selection and sledging. It's a book no cricket fan should be without.
