Reviews:
"This is a great read, a humorous diary of facts about a sleeping cricketing giant. Whether I was scoring a ton for England at Lord's against the West Indies or drumming at the Royal Albert Hall, my time at Lancashire was never dull. I played hard and partied hard." - Graeme Fowler (Lancashire and England 1979-1992)

“I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, which brought back some great memories from my time as a player at the club. There’s plenty of information which will entertain all cricket fans and once you start reading it you’ll find it hard to put down.” - Warren Hegg (Lancashire and England 1986-2005)

“This is a great read, funny and informative about my adopted county.” - Gary Keedy (Lancashire CCC 1995-present)
