The most famous sports book in the world, Wisden Cricketers' Almanack has been published every year since 1864. Wisden 2011 - the 148th edition - contains coverage of every first-class game in every cricket nation, and reports and scorecards for all Tests and ODIs, including the 2010-2011 Ashes series in Australia where England will seek to retain the Ashes after their victory in the 2009 summer series. Including the eagerly awaited Notes by the Editor, the Cricketers of the Year awards, and some of the finest sports writing of the year - such as the brilliant obituaries - together with trenchant opinion, compelling features and comprehensive records, Wisden Cricketers' Almanack truly is a "must-have" for every cricket fan. A perennial bestseller in the UK. "There can't really be any doubt about the cricket book of the year, any year: it's obviously Wisden". Andrew Baker in the Daily Telegraph

MEDIA REVIEWS
'The book, now into its 148th season, continues to inform, educate and entertain. As always, it offers something for each follower of the sport, be they social historian, collector or statistical digester.' * Morning Star (April 2011) *
'If Paine isn't to hand, I shall continue browsing the latest Wisden Cricketers' Almanack, which has just arrived. I most enjoy the obituaries which have uniquely elegiac and sometimes poignant qualities.' * New Statesman *
The 2011 edition of Wisden Cricketers' Almanack is likely to end up as well read and well thumbed as my 1982 edition. Why? Because it records in its usual wonderful detail the events of an awesome Ashes Series as England, glory be, won in style in Australia. * East Anglian Daily Times *
'The real joy of the Almanack is in its lush texture ... as ever Wisden remains unmatched' * www.thecricketer.com *
"This richly filled edition of Wisden Cricketers' Almanack 2011 holds many pleasures to be savoured and maintains the exemplary standards of a publication of high repute...This is a lavish production worth every penny for its 1650 pages. Everything about it is right - the layout and the clear font. The text is adorned with some outstanding coloured photographs." * Cricket Statistician *
"Wisden's appeal and gravitas comes wth that near-century and half's experience of reporting every game of note and chiselling its runs and wickets into the tombstone of history." * Wisden Cricketers' Almanack 2011 (May 2011) *
The famous yellow-covered almanack, first published in 1864, is a glorious adjunct to a glorious game, and no sporting bookshelf is complete without it. -- Max Davidson * Daily Telegraph (Oct 12th 2011) *
Since it launched in 1864 cricket bible Wisden has been a bastion of the English game. * Western Daily Press (Oct 11th 2011) *
