My Life and Rugby Eddie Jones. Add to basket. I would put this book into the top half dozen I have read on what it is like to play the first-class game. Some people, watching from the boundary edge, are intolerant of failure and find it hard to believe that playing cricket for a living can be difficult.
This superb book tells it like it is and should be compulsory reading for those who are quick to criticise.
For a player who never seemed to lack confidence, Nixon's honesty about his battles with the mental side of first-class cricket are extraordinary, just as his account of understanding the effects of his dyslexia helped him to counter them. This took longer than might have been expected and he was a classic late developer, a substantially better player from his late twenties than earlier. Equally interesting and amusing are his stories of 'sledging', or mental disintegration as it is known in some quarters. He is honest about himself and equally so about others.
His disapproval of Mike Atherton's autographs, of Andrew Flintoff's attitude and of players who don't take their responsibilities seriously sets this book apart from many of its kind. The Hansie Cronje incident, match-fixing, the media and dressing room divisions are all tackled head-on and give supporters a rare opportunity to see what it can be like behind the dressing room door.
Autobiography a “therapeutic experience”, says Nixon
