LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:

HarperCollins: HarperCollins Publishers, 2005. Few modern British sportsmen have fascinated the public more than Geoff Boycott. In this first comprehensive and balanced account of Boycott's life &ndash; fully updated to include his battle against cancer &ndash; award&ndash;winning author Leo McKinstry lifts the lid on one of cricket's great enigmatic characters. A record&ndash;breaking Test cricketer and acerbic commentator, Geoff Boycott has never been far away from controversy during his long career in the game. Based on meticulous research and interviews with a host of players, Test captains, officials, broadcasters, friends and enemies, this definitive biography cuts through the Boycott myth to expose the truth about this charismatic, single&ndash;minded and often exasperating personality. What was Boycott like as a schoolboy? How did his England cricket colleagues such as Graham Gooch, Dennis Amiss and Brian Close feel about him as a person? Why was he so unpopular in his early career for Yorkshire? And what is the real truth about the relationships that soured his private world? From his upbringing as a miner's son in a Yorkshire village, through highlights like his hundredth century at Headingley against Australia, to the low points such as the damaging court case in France, this warts&ndash;and&ndash;all account of his life makes for captivating reading.<p>. Paperback. New.
