’He is England’s greatest ever batsman…a hugely enjoyable book’
Daily Mail, SPORTS BOOKS OF THE YEAR
_________________

Watch. The. Ball.

It’s just you. Standing at the crease. Waiting. The bowler is running. His arm swinging. The ball - 155 grams of cork, string and leather - is hurled at you. At 90 mph it travels 22 yards in under half a second. You can barely see it and you’ve got to be swinging your bat before it’s halfway towards you. Because you are in its path…


Alastair Cook, one of England’s most decorated players and highest test run scorer, knows what it is like to be your best under pressure. Yet at 33 he called time on his England career.

Come with him as he relives the fraught hours on the pitch, the desperate lows and astonishing highs, the paralysing anxiety that can send the best back home and the extraordinary battle of wills with yourself, the opposing players and even those supposedly on your own side.

This is cricket as you’ve never seen it. The view from the inside…

LONGLISTED FOR THE TELEGRAPH SPORTS BOOK OF THE YEAR AUTOBIOGRAPHY AWARD

Guardian

’Bracingly honest’
Times

Alastair Nathan Cook was born in Gloucester, December 1984. He is an English cricketer. He plays for Essex County Cricket Club and previously for England. Cook is the fifth highest Test scorer of all time.

He is regarded as England’s most successful batsman ever and now he is an icon and role model in sport.

Outside of cricket, Alastair has written columns in the Telegraph and Metro, he is a talented saxophone player and donates his time to raising money for cancer charities and the David Randall Foundation. He is now married with three children.

Bracingly honest about the brutal nature of professional cricketThe Times

He is England’s greatest ever batsman…but behind that choirboy exterior, Cook is as tough as tugboats, a man who has spent his life doing one of the hardest, scariest jobs in sports - opening the batting in Test cricket. This hugely enjoyable book gives you an idea of quite how challenging it is, and makes you see that finding a replacement for “The Chef” at the top of England’s batting order won’t be any picnic—Sports Books of the Year Daily Mail
