Which first-class cricket team contained two players who would later be murdered? Who was the Australian-born Test cricketer who became a cage fighter? Which former England all-rounder set a world record for eating the most peas with a cocktail stick? Which pair of brothers share the most century partnerships in Test match cricket, and who was the bowler who took Test wickets with consecutive balls, seven years apart? The answers to all these teasers can be found in this irresistible, addictive and routinely astonishing collection of cricketing facts, feats and figures. Opening the door on areas such as cricket and politics, cricket and music, cricket and films, royalty and cuisine, the book transcends cricketing trivia. Outside Edge amounts to a wholly original compendium of the most unusual stories from across the whole breadth of the global game's rich history and culture. Featuring a foreword by Australian Test legend Geoff Lawson.

Review:

"The book is a delight from start to finish that I promised myself I would stretch the better to savour it over a fortnight's holiday. Naturally, I polished it off in a couple of days. It's a formula that's relentless, but strangely compelling you say to yourself, just one more page; and then gorge on another dozen." --99.94 Cricket Blog

"Thanks to his endless research, Marc Dawson, has produced a truly magnificent effort. An excellent book and worthy of joining a collector's library. Pleasantly packaged, it is a veritable mine of information which whets the appetite for further exploration." --Rajesh Kumar
