Actually a pretty good book. As an American I always wondered about CrIcket....an inning that lasts hours, over 100 runs in an inning in a game that could last 3 days with tea breaks???? However after reading this book, I have a much better understanding of the game and why hundreds of millions are fanatics about it. In fact I have watched a few matches since reading this book and can finally understand what is happening on the "wicket" and really enjoy it. This book clearly explains the game, equipment and what is happening during a match. It also discusses some of the greats of the game, the rivalries and the best games ever played. A very interesting book that I can highly recommend. So grab this book and a cup of tea and give the game a chance.

I know a bit about cricket but needed a lot of help to set up a casual game among friends. This book made it easy to measure out and mark the critical areas of the field (i.e., the creases, wicket placement and height). It also presents the rules in an easy to read way. More advanced subject matter, such as game strategy, team selection, qualities of individual fields, captaining a team, umpiring, etc. are included for those who are more familiar with the game and want to hone their skills. There is even a neat chapter on history and famous rivalries. A great book, especially for beginners!

I bought this book to learn about cricket, and the book delivers. I now have a pretty good grasp of the game - and I want to play now too :)

The only criticism I can give is that the orgnaization isn't very good if you plan on reading the book from cover to cover in one go. It seems to jump around between rules (laws), history and how to play.

It would make a great reference book, and with a physical copy the jumping around probably doesn't matter, but with the kindle edition it makes for an odd read.

I would absolutely recommend the book, and I would buy it again.

I'm an American dating a Brit who loves cricket. I enjoyed watching it but wasn't picking it up fast enough for my liking. This book is great. It's easy to read and explains things well. It's easy to bookmark stuff to reference back to as well. If you are trying to get the hang of Cricket this is the book you want!

I am trying to understand and comprehend the rules and regs of this game. I love the, "Dummies", books because they are so good at explanations that require a lot of description. I'm still confused, however I discovered that on YouTube you can watch cricket games and, therefore, try and follow some of them. It's an amazing game; that is for certain.

We learned enough in the first couple of chapters to better understand what we are watching. We will need to study it in detail to become knowledgeable fans.

Now I know cricket
Very informative but I think it could have been edited better, grammatically and structurally. It's a good read but the mention and then later definition of some information seems misplaced.
