Product Description

An unrepentant nut case on cricket and rugby, is how Peter West describes himself, but between these first and last loves Mr. West has appeared on our television screens and on radio in a wide variety of roles, from panel games to holiday shows to Miss World and of course Come Dancing. This remarkable all-round record includes 35 summers of televised test matches, 27 Wimbledon Tennis Championships, regular columns on rugby for The Times and the Daily Telegraph – in all, expert coverage of more than 30 sports. In this book he recounts with skill and good humour, his personal story packed with people and places and behind-the- scenes sporting dramas.

Published 1986.

Hardback – with original dust jacket.

Condition: 9/10



Every general cricket book in this section has not been paid for by the Wisden Collectors’ Club or Wisdenworld. Sometimes when Wisden collections are acquired by Wisdenworld, the seller has other non-almanacks and invariably, they are eager to dispose of them. I make it absolutely clear to the people with these books that I DO NOT have much idea on their worth and it might be best if they seek another opinion or  another buyer. On most occasions, especially when dealing with a collection from someone who has passed away, they simply wish the headache removed.

It is only right that if I have not paid for these books, then every single penny including the postage paid goes to a worthy cause or two.

ALL Proceeds (including Postage) from books taken from the Latest Offers And Giveaways section of the website will be split between The Alzheimer’s Society and The Kings Arms Project (Bedford).

Thank you so much for looking and if you purchase any editions, happy reading!
