EX-England batsman Rob Key is one of the wittiest pundits on TV. Whether it's a drizzly day-nighter in Derby or a World Cup Final at Lord's, Key's wizardry with the mic more than matches that which he had with the bat.In his new book, Key reflects on the past and present of an ever-unforgiving game, in so doing shining light into the darkest recesses of the dressing-room. What he finds there is as amusing as it is shocking, as farcical as it is fascinating.Known as one of the sharpest cricket brains around, Key casts a knowledgeable and sometimes acerbic eye over such areas as fitness, captaincy, and sledging, while delivering a close-up view of some of the biggest names in the game.More than anything, Key reveals just what it is to be a professional cricketer, the camaraderie, the comedy, and, of course, the calamity.

On May 21, 2004, playing against New Zealand, Andrew Strauss wrote his name into the record books when he became only the fourth batsman to score a century at Lord's on his Test debut. He made 112 in the first innings and was only denied a historical second hundred when he was run out on 83 by Nasser Hussain. England went on to beat New Zealand 3-0 before returning to headquarters to welcome the West Indies, Strauss scoring 137 as the hosts laid the foundations for another whitewash. He then raised the bar again when touring the country of his birth, making three centuries in England's first win in South Africa in 40 years. This sensational start to his international career has ensured that he has been celebrated as a world-class opening batsman, and was voted Wisden's Cricketer of the Year 2005. In THE STORY SO FAR, Andrew Strauss looks back on his early cricketing days and astounding first year in Test cricket, and gives the inside story on what it is like to be part of an incredible England side fighting to overtake Australia as the number one cricketing nation. THE STORY SO FAR also includes his personal story of how England beat Australia in the 2005 Ashes Series, in which he played a major part.

No one feels the heat of an Ashes battle more than the captains of England and Australia. The weight of national expectation, and more than 120 years of history, is on their shoulders from the moment they walk out to toss a coin and start a Test match that is like no other. The Captains' Tales offers a unique insight into the minds of a generation of captains from two great nations, who share with the reader what it feels like to call the shots in Test cricket's greatest cauldron. From Mike Brearley's cajoling of Ian Botham during the famous summer of 1981 to Ricky Ponting's revenge mission of 2006-07, each Ashes captain from the last quarter-century reveals what made him tick, his vision of where he wanted to take his team and how he handled key characters within the dressing-room. The author, former Kent captain David Fulton, delves behind the scenes for clues about how these sporting generals constructed their battle plans and uses his own experience to determine their strengths and weaknesses as leaders of men. The Captains' Tales will strike a chord not just with cricket lovers but with sporting captains of all abilities and readers who seek a greater insight into the broader issues of management and leadership.

From growing up in a tiny village, Port Mourant, Berbice, to amassing over six decades of cricketing experience, former West Indies cricketer Alvin Kallicharran has a lot to offer to the cricketing world. Having been through ups and downs, fighting adversities and overcoming challenges, he feels his experiences and influences will help upcoming young cricketers to understand that success comes with hard work and dedication. He firmly believes that principles, virtues, and values will last a lifetime and that it is only with patience that success is achieved. “When my wife, Patsy, motivated me to write this book as a way of giving back to the kids, I thought long and hard about it. I could have written about my successes. But having worked with kids from different backgrounds and countries over the last 16 years and the devotion I have in creating sports careers, I decided to change the whole angle of the book. The more I wrote, the clearer it became that the story I wanted to share was my journey of overcoming adversities, hardships and struggles to achieve success.” – Alvin Kallicharran Colour Blind is filled with colourful stories, colourful events, and colourblind cricketers, just like Alvin. The book reinstates the fact that sport is the ultimate equaliser and that the ball knows no colour. “I have played cricket with Alvin Kallicharran for a long time. He was my hero, and was playing much before I broke into the cricket scene. I wish him all the success, good health and happiness.” – Kapil Dev, Former Indian Cricketer “Colour Blind is not your usual cricket autobiography, offering some personal background and the occasional cricketing insight but more often than not padded with details of runs scored, wickets taken, catches held and missed, and other mundane details that can be easily looked up elsewhere. In Kallicharran’s autobiography, his life and cricket experiences are narrated only to bring out what he calls the ‘principles, virtues, and values [that] will last a lifetime.’ Each chapter concludes with a set of ‘Key Takeaways’ and ‘Action Steps’. Read this book and make up your own mind.” – N. Ram, Chairman, The Hindu Publishing Group

'An excellent read' - Rugby World Rob Andrew is one of the key figures in modern rugby history: an outstanding international who won three Grand Slams with England and toured twice with the British and Irish Lions, he also played a central role in the game's professional revolution with his trailblazing work at Newcastle. During a long spell on Tyneside, he led the team to a Premiership title at the first opportunity, brought European action to the north-east and gave the young Jonny Wilkinson his break in big-time union by fast-tracking him into the side straight out of school. What happened off the field was equally eventful. Rob produced 'The Andrew Report' - the most radical of blueprints for the future of English rugby - and then, over the course of a decade as one of Twickenham's top administrators, found himself grappling with the extreme challenges of running a game repeatedly blown off course by the winds of change. He did not merely have a ringside seat as one of the world's major sports went through its greatest upheaval in a century: more often than not, he was in the ring itself.
