Test Cricket is an odyssey into cricket's heart and history, filled with heroes, villains, laughter, tears, bats and balls. No subject has escaped cricket writer and filmmaker Jarrod Kimber in his chronicling of Test match cricket. He takes cricket fans through all the seismic events in cricket's tragicomic history, from its accidental birth to its run-in with death. Lords, maharajahs and refugees have all played the game that has survived many wars, corruption and terrorism to still be standing - still be captivating - today. Cricket has been dented by history, evolved by nature, grown entire nations and had to fight just to remain. This is not just the story of the people who played the game; this is Test cricket's story.

Steve Waugh's career is undisputedly the stuff of legend. As a player and as a captain he has reached the pinnacle of Australian cricket. His side has been compared to Bradman's Invincibles, and the media coverage following his retirement from Test cricket was reignited by his controversial naming as Australian of the Year for 2004. Many though, including Jack Egan, have long wondered about the private man behind the public face of Australia's most successful Test captain. For all the media coverage, including his own tour diaries, Waugh guards his privacy fiercely. This unauthorised biography by a respected cricketing writer and documentary-maker is not only a tribute to a player who has given the world some of the most magic moments in recent cricket, but also an honest exploration of the man himself. Who is Steve Waugh? Jack Egan traces Waugh's career from his shaky debut on the international scene to his mastery of field placing and attacking Test cricket, revisiting a few of his key innings along the way. This is a comprehensive and objective picture of one of Australia's most successful sportsmen, his successes and failures, his effect for good, and bad, on the game on which the Australian team currently has such a stranglehold.

Raise a glass for an Anzac. Run for an Anzac. Camp under the stars for an Anzac. Is there anything Australians won’t do to keep the Anzac legend at the centre of our national story? But standing firm on the other side of the Anzac enthusiasts is a chorus of critics claiming that the appetite for Anzac is militarising our history and indoctrinating our children. So how are we to make sense of this struggle over how we remember the Great War? Anzac, the Unauthorised Biography cuts through the clamour to provide a much-needed historical perspective on the battle over Anzac. It traces how, since 1915, Australia’s memory of the Great War has declined and surged, reflecting the varied and complex history of the Australian nation itself. Most importantly, it asks why so many Australians persist with the fiction that the nation was born on 25 April 1915.

'An astonishing work of research, detail and revelation. Bulging with information, packed with nuggets.' John Etheridge, Sun 'Another wonderful sports book...simply a treat.' Jim Holden, Sunday Express England: The Biography is the most comprehensive account of the England cricket team that has ever been published, taking the reader into the heart of the action and the team dynamics that have helped shape their success, or otherwise. It is now 140 years since England first played Test match cricket and, for much of that time, it has struggled to perform to the best of its capabilities. In the early years, amateurs would pick and choose which matches and tours they would play; subsequently, the demands of the county game - and the petty jealousies that created - would prevent many from achieving their best. It was only in the 1990s that central contracts were brought in, and Team England began to receive the best possible support from an ever-increasing backroom team. But cricket isn't just about structures, it depends like no other sport on questions of how successful the captain is in motivating and leading his team, and how well different personalities and egos are integrated and managed in the changing room. From Joe Root and Alastair Cook back to Mike Atherton, Mike Brearley and Ray Illingworth, England captains have had a heavy influence on proceedings. Recent debates over Kevin Pietersen were nothing new, as contemporaries of W.G.Grace would doubtless recognise. As England play their 1000th Test, this is a brilliant and unmissable insight into the ups and downs of that story.

»Ich stehe für eine Ära, in der bewiesen wurde, dass Fußball gleichzeitig attraktiv und erfolgreich sein kann«, sagt Johan Cruyff im Rückblick auf die 1970er Jahre. Wie kein anderer steht Cruyff für dynamischen, leidenschaftlichen Angriffsfußball. Als Kapitän der niederländischen Nationalmannschaft, bei Ajax Amsterdam und später beim FC Barcelona hatte er mit dieser Taktik legendäre Erfolge erzielt. Der magische Spieler mit der Rückennummer 14 ist der Begründer der Fußball-Philosophie, die in den letzten Jahren vor allem von seinem Schüler Pep Guardiola perfektioniert wurde. Nun erzählt Cruyff, der in einem Atemzug mit Superstars wie Pele, Beckenbauer, Maradona und Messi genannt wird, von den ruhmreichen Stationen seiner Karriere als Spieler und Trainer. Mein Spiel ist eines der erhellendsten und klügsten Bücher, das in den letzten Jahrzehnten über den Fußball geschrieben wurde.
