This is more of a lame preview than a reading of the book. At 2 hours (only realised after I picked it) I knew it would be short, but this version misses some of his main points in the book, especially about his "Gollum". There are a couple of references but it's never explained for people who don't know.
I've consigned myself to buying the book at some point and reading it, but really would have preferred to have had it as an audio version...
If you feel the need for listening to this version, or have already and didn't understand it, listen to his BBC "Desert Island Discs" interview - was far more revealing and heartfelt, if I was reviewing that, it would have got 4/5 stars... I'm only giving this 2 as there are some good elements in there, but sooooo poorly editied, it's a shame considering the source material (the book) and his capabilities as a speaker (the BBC DID interview).

I had been drawn to this book as an example of the better type of sporting memoir - going deep into the psychology of the player. In effect it is just a list of sporting fixtures where the self-opinionated player presents his extremely biassed and unsupported view. What a shame.
