    Review quote
    Wisden has earned the respect and affection of every serious sports fan...that iconic yellow jacket still marks a fixed point in a disorderly world. Daily Telegraph As comprehensive and opinionated as ever. Independent on Sunday Nothing beats the reassuring thud on the doormat in April when Wisden lands, as a harbinger of the season to come and a reminder of seasons gone. Mike Atherton, The Times The modern Wisden is a marvel of accuracy and inclusiveness. The Times A truly unique sporting institution. Financial Times ...a treasure trove of superb writing. Sunday Express the new Wisden is a stunningly inclusive affair that takes a strong line on cricket politics and reflects both the game's global diversity and England's woes. Guardian The 151st edition of the cricket bible...Wisden, as ever, is essential reading. Daily Mail No game generates nostalgia quite like cricket and no book classifies our memories more reliably than Wisden. The Times It just goes to show, some old-fangled ways are well worth hanging on to. Independent on Sunday a superb edition...is as rich as ever Cricketer Arguably the greatest sporting almanack of all time School Sport
