This is a pretty nice book where Viv gives a vivid account of his rise in cricket. He emphasizes his friendship with Ian Botham and his appreciation of Brian Close in his formative years as a batsman. He also writes about his duels with Dennis Lilee and Thompson.

Being a somewhat recent follower of cricket, I found this book very entertaining without going into the sometimes complexity's of the game.

The book takes the standard cronolgical approach in telling Sir Viv's life so far, but what made this book so enjoyable were the stories and the easy way in which he tells them, you can tell he had so much enjoyment in his time playing county cricket in the UK, and the exploits and tales of "after" the matches, make him very approachable and entertaining.
