UK Kirkus review
Published annually since 1864, Wisden is the bible of the cricketing world, providing a unique mixture of reports, anecdotes, illustrations - and, of course, a compilation of statistics that only real cricket fans could love. This is the 'Millennium Wisden' - it comes with a special centrepiece section on cricket in the 20th century and a free paperback celebrating Wisden's 20th century with extracts from every edition from 1900 to 1999. Perhaps more importantly, it gives the results of its poll to find the best five cricketers of the century. You won't find us giving away all the answers, but it will come as no surprise to find that Don Bradman is the only unanimous selection. There is also the selection of the five cricketers of the year (no surprise that no Englishman makes it again) and the usual mixture of articles, obituaries (Malcolm Marshall, EW Swanton, Godfrey Evans) and an unparalleled overview of a year's cricket. This is also the last to be edited by Matthew Engel, for a while at least. The draining effect of reporting on continued England failures has taken its toll and he is taking a sabbatical while he regains his love for the game. Don't bank on England helping him out against the West Indies this year. (Kirkus UK)
