Description

David Gower was the most brilliant and gifted of English Test batsmen in recent times. Yet, despite his unimpeachable Test record, his career was not without controversy. In his frank and outspoken autobiography, Gower responds forthrightly to those critics who questioned his 'laid back' approach, and makes some incisive comments about the management of the England side. He recounts the triumphs and reverses of his captaincy of England and of Leicestershire, and compares his man-management with that of Illingworth, Brearley, Willis, Gatting and Gooch. On a lighter note, Gower writes about his nights on the tiles with Botham and Lamb, his Cresta Run, and his 'fly over' during a state game in Australia.
