Life is very rarely dull or quiet when Sir Ian Botham is around. One of Britain's greatest sportsmen, 'Beefy' has always worked hard and played hard, and this book reflects that. Botham has compiled some of his favourite stories from a life devoted to cricket and brought them all together in one volume. With the help of his huge network of friends, colleagues, team-mates and opponents, he has put together a wonderful collection of the best and the funniest stories from the cricket world.
Featuring contributions from legends such as Shane Warne, fellow commentators and former team-mates including David Gower, and many of the current England team, this is a book the reader can pick up and immediately be privy to some of cricket's strangest and most hilarious moments, from the player who turned up to a game naked, to avoid being fined for wearing the wrong kit, to the cricketing legend whose desire for a burger landed him in hot water.
Sir Ian Botham is widely regarded as England's greatest living cricketer, winning 102 caps and taking a record 383 Test wickets. Since retiring from the game, he has become a much-loved commentator for Sky Sports and he has raised millions of pounds for charity.
