    1. This is an outstanding treatise on captaincy and the art of leadership on the cricket field As i read through, mind you this was originally written in 1985, i came to understand how much the game has changed and as much as it is about the art of captaincy and leadership, is also a journal of the evolution of the game For instance, Brearley talks about field settings from an era where batsmen used to play in from of their leg guard to his era when batsmen started playing with their bats close to [...]

    2. Fascinating insight into professional cricketHard work if you are not a cricket fanatic but a rewarding exploration of what makes a difference in this complex tactical sport Brearley patiently sets out his detailed preparation and strategic planning that delivered great results for England.

    3. Although enjoyable, I found Brearley s much discussed book just a little disappointing neither cricket manual nor memoir nor most significantly for me the psychologically insightful book I d been expecting That said, the book is well written, entertaining and as far as a hybrid of the above three genres goes a success.

    4. BrilliantAs much about philosophy as it is about captaincy, this book gives a great insight into everything about being a captain and whilst it is talking in the main about the professional game there are common themes for all levels.

    5. Wise, gentle book with some big things to say about cricket, leadership and in this edition psychoanalysis All done in such a manner that you imagine you re having a pint in the local after a day at Lords Lovely.

    6. Good on both cricket and psychoanalysis, all delivered as though by a benevolent headmaster rather than a PE teacher.
