From the cover: “Worshipped by England fans, and admired by cricket lovers everywhere for his big-hitting, fast-bowling style, Flintoff is the charismatic, hugely popular face of the modern game. His development has been spectacular — he was England’s star performer at the 2003 World Cup, Man of the Series against the West Indies the following winter, and is now regarded as his country’s finest all-rounder since lan Botham. Flintoff’s greatest and most recent successes have come against the old enemy, Australia, in a 2005 Ashes series that captured the hearts and minds of a nation. Over a quite sensational summer, Flintoff was at the centre of everything, scoring runs and taking wickets at a phenomenal rate, and hailed as a hero for his part in English cricket’s greatest ever triumph.
BEING FREDDIE is a very personal account of Flintoff’s meteoric rise to the top. Recounting the most dramatic, significant moments in his career to date, Freddie reveals what it is like to play for the most successful England cricket team in recent times, and takes the reader into the heat of battle with the world’s top cricketing nations. Incorporating the fascinating inside story of the victorious 2005 Ashes campaign, this is the book cricket fans across the world have been waiting for.”
