    Description
    This is a unique collection of 100 cricketing characters taken from his own personal scrapbook. Players, some household names and others not so well known; umpires and coaches; mentors; television commentators; writers; groundsmen; popstars and philanthropists - in fact all those who in Botham's opinion have been an influence for good in the game during his era.

    Featured among the cast of characters are the likes of the legendary Don Bradman, Garfield Sobers and Sunil Gavaskar; Botham's soulmate and sparring partner Viv Richards; rival fast bowlers Dennis Lillee and Jeff Thomson; and more recent stars of the game in Brian Lara, Shane Warne and the irresistible Darren Gough.

    Not forgetting the more eccentric personalities encountered along the way, such as Dickie Bird, Jack Russell and Phil Tufnell; the late John Arlott and Brian Johnston from the commentary box; and Elton John, Mick Jagger and other celebrities from the world of pop and showbiz.

    Entertaining, controversial, and written in typical swashbuckling style, these portraits from Botham's Hall of Fame are sure to incite a plethora of opinions from those both inside and outside the game. 'Botham's Century' will be a treasured item for cricket fans and nostalgia lovers, as well as those just seeking a jolly good read.
