Robertson-Glasgow, former Oxford University and Somerset cricketer and now correspondent for the Observer brings not only wide playing experience but years of acute observation and comparative criticism to bear on his subject. In this book he gives his intimate impressions of nearly a hundred cricketers in county and international matches over a period of twenty years. Throughout there runs a wit, imagination and perception which, in the opinion of many, make R.C. Robertson-Glasgow the foremost games-writer of the day. His style ,as easy and assured as a Compton off-drive, combines with his wisdom and kindly shrewdness to make this book a fascinating read for any fan of the game.
