One hundred colourful portraits of the cricketing characters whom Ian Botham has come into contact with during his eventful career and who have influenced the game for good during this time: from top players, umpires and coaches to pop stars, writers and philanthropists.
Among the cast of characters who feature in Botham's own Who's Who of cricket are many of the world's top past and present players, cricketers such as Viv Richards, Brian Close, Shane Warne and Nasser Hussain.
Umpire Dickie Bird and the late John Arlott also have a place in Beefy's Hall of Fame. Others associated with cricket include Mick Jagger, Nelson Mandela and Nick Faldo; and many more who in Beefy's opinion have been a positive influence in the game during his era.
Witty, entertaining and controversial, these portraits have already incited a plethora of opinions from those both inside and outside the game.
This paperback edition is sure to be another Botham bestseller.
