The Sports Bookshelf
"This fantastic volume is the perfect companion to make you chuckle, no matter what is going on Down Under"

The Corridor (a cricket blog)
"Just What The Good Doctor Ordered"
"Alan Tyers was once called a friend of a gigolo for writing about Sachin Tendulkar. I’m not sure that is a reason to buy this book, but it is close enough."
