Description

Brian Johnston, known as "Johnners" to millions of cricket fans around the world, was for nearly 50 years the voice of cricket on BBC Television and radio. When he died in 1994 at the age of 81, the Daily Telegraph described him as "the greatest natural broadcaster of them all". Following the success of his previous title "A Delicious Slice of Johnners", Barry Johnston has edited another anthology based on three of his father's most popular books, "Brian Johnston's Guide to Cricket", "Chatterboxes" and "It's Been a Piece of Cake". This volume offers a humorous and affectionate collection of anecdotes and reminiscences about Brian Johnston's fellow commentators, his selection of the six most exciting Test matches and his all time favourite cricketers, from Len Hutton and Denis Compton to Ian Botham.show more
