Waterstones Says

Leader of men, toppler of records and all-round thoroughly decent chap, Sir Alastair Cook is a cricketing icon and a sporting role model. Now, for the first time, England's former captain and most capped player reveals the challenges, events and people behind his journey to become one of the nation's elite sportsmen. An authentic British sporting hero in his own words.

Pre order and become one of the first to read Sir Alastair Cook's new book, the whole story behind an exceptional life and career...

To understand England's greatest cricket player is to know what it takes to succeed.

Alastair Cook is the greatest batsman to ever play for England and, as one of the most gifted players in the world he knows that his triumphs are as important as the challenges and moments of resilience.

Now, as The English Cricket team reel from his dramatic retirement, Alastair tells his story: a close-up account of his last chapter, his 33rd and last Test hundred, an intimate tale of his life, his family, of the man he is today and the man he will be - after cricket.

An icon, a role model and one of the loveliest men alive, Alastair is lauded as a person as well as a player and this is his never-before-heard story.

“Alistair Cook signed book”

The book was not even signed by Alistair Cook and contained a random signature that looks nothing like Alistair cooks regular and normal autograph. Therefore I returned the book. If you want a signed copy don’t bother... More
