Illustrated with photographs, in colour & black and white. From the cover: “Timed to coincide with the 30th anniversary of lan Botham’s Test debut, this unique book is a visual testament to one of England’s true sporting heroes. Packed with pictures never before published, it covers every aspect of a remarkable life. Botham was not only one of the greatest cricketers the world has seen, but in his 52nd year he continues to amaze and inspire with the energy and sheer joie de vivre of his public and private life as well as his huge commitments to charity work. Supported by text from the man himself, put together in interviews with Mark Baldwin of The Times, the wealth of pictures are given both context and added meaning. Botham’s legendary playing career — at Somerset, Worcestershire, Durham and as England’s greatest all-rounder — itself provides pages of unforgettable and sometimes iconic images; there is, however, so very much more to Botham.”
