  • Once you've read this account of one man's love affair with cricket, you'll never want to read another ghosted autobiography by a Pietersen or a Vaughan again - incompetence and failure is far more fun

    Michael Atherton
  • An instant classic

    Stephen Fry
  • The childhood recollections, suffused with warmth and spangled with pain and humour, are the book's unique selling point. Lovely stuff

    Daily Telegraph
  • Simmo may be a shockingly average amateur cricketer, but when it comes to self- deprecating wit and telling a good anecdote, he's as sprightly as Garry Sobers in his prime ... anecdotes and quirky characters hurtle down at us like yorkers bowled by a fast bowler that I'm not quite knowledgeable enough to name ... an entertaining read indeed

    Sunday Times
  • Michael writes about disaster, humiliation, rejection and ridicule - the hilarious truth

    Nicholas Hytner
