Book Description (London: Stanley Paul, 1980) 0091333709, 1980. 8vo; original blue boards; laminated pictorial dustwrapper; pp. 188; plates. Very good condition. "As captain of England, Tony Greig received widespread acclaim for his dynamic leadership. Intelligent and articulate, he brought to Test cricket an excitement that had been lacking for some time. Subsequently engulfed in controversy, he finally tells the whole story of his decision to back Packer - a decision that split the cricketing world in two, and persuaded him to leave England and start a new life in Australia. The consequences of his decision to support World Series Cricket, he argues, have been favourable to both players and spectators - amongst other things the development of night cricket and promotion on a grand scale have introduced a whole new generation of cricket lovers and increased players' incomes. Writing with characteristic frankness of his childhood in South Africa and the early years of his career, he tells how he triumphed over a life-long affliction to win the coveted captaincy of England. Tony Greig's remarkable story will be welcomed by all cricket enthusiasts and by anyone interested in the processes by which a man of talent and ambition becomes a superstar.".
