Would you listen to Head On again? Why?
Ian was one of my sporting hero's growing up so it was fascinating to learn more about the man behind the public persona. His honesty about his strengths and weaknesses was refreshing and really helped give a better understanding of who he is and what shaped him as a person. It was also brilliant to get his view on both the people running English cricket and the tabloid scum around at that time. Most cricket fans of that era would agree with everything he wrote.
It's a long book, but, if you remember the matches of that time, a highly enjoyable trip down memory lane.
Reading/Listening to a book about one of your sporting heroes is often a daunting task, but this one is very very good. It tells you a lot you knew about Both and a lot you may not have known.
Typical of the man,he pulls no punches whatsoever in this book.
An excellent warts-n-all look at a brilliant cricketer.
Sir Ian is not one to hold back and if often forthright with his opinions. This breaks down some of the background into what shaped him into the man he is today and gives the reader a real sense of the legendary cricketer both at home and in life - neither of which have any flies on him! I particularly enjoyed his chapters on what drives him to do so much charity work and the openness about his private life.
