Cricket: The Game of Life: Every reason to celebrate

Scyld Berry draws on his experiences as a cricket writer of forty years to produce new insights and unfamiliar historical angles on the game, along with moving reflections on episodes from his own life.

The author covers a range of themes including cricket in different areas of the world, and abstract concepts such as language, numbers, ethics and psychology; Scyld Berry relishes the joys cricket provides and is convinced of the positive effect it can have in people's lives.

Cricket: The Game of Life is an inspiring book that reminds readers why they love the game and prompts them to look at it in a new way.
