*Standard hardback edition*

The 154th edition of Wisden Cricketers' Almanack is crammed, as ever, with the best writing in the game. Matthew Engel looks back at 60 years of Test Match Special, Derek Pringle reveals the secrets of ball-tampering, and Gideon Haigh explores the evolution of the six. There are also superb pieces by Rob Smyth, Vic Marks and Tanya Aldred, plus the all the usual reports, reviews, scorecards and statistics - plus the hard-hitting editor's notes by Lawrence Booth. In an age of snap judgments, Wisden's authority and integrity are more important than ever. A perennial bestseller in the UK, yet again this year's edition is truly a "must-have" for every cricket fan.

"There can't really be any doubt about the cricket book of the year, any year: it's obviously Wisden" Andrew Baker in the Daily Telegraph

Review quote

In these times of upheaval, when nothing seems certain anymore, how we need Wisden's reassuring presence. One imagines that even after a nuclear apocalypse it would continue to be publishing, compiling stats of indoor cricket matches played in bunkers, and considering the effect having six-and-a-half-billion fewer people on the planet will have on cricket's popularity * All Out Cricket * Wisden...it's the book that just keeps on giving back to the game * The Cricket Paper * Wisden today is in better shape than at any time in its long history * Times Literary Supplement * The book has become an institution * www.espncricinfo.com * The greatest and most diverse trove of cricket writing anywhere in the Western world * The Cricketer *
