Reviews

A fascinating and tremendously well-researched history. * The Times *
As with Marmite, salad cream and the University Boat Race, the obsessive appeal of Wisden to a certain type of Englishman (and it is usually a man) can be hard to explain to the uninitiated. The search for the source of the book's magic is the subtext of this witty, erudite and comprehensive history. -- Paul Coupar * The Cricketer *
Thoroughly researched and highly entertaining. * The Times *
Brilliant -- David Kynaston * The Times *
Irresistible...Winder's graceful and measured prose is entirely suited to his topic. * The Guardian *
excellent celebratory title[]. ...contains some of the best writing you will encounter...in any genre. * The Times *
Marking Wisden's 150th anniversary with detailed research, elegant style and dry wit. * New Statesman *
