Description

While it has its moments of humor and charm, the book lacks the depth and structure needed to elevate it to the level of a standout sports autobiography. I am glad I read this, because even though I have watched his documentary and ALOTO, I could understand more about his views and opinions on certain aspects of life. Throughout, Fred shares his code for success, happiness and a life fully lived - and gives his readers a laugh, some joy, and (the occasional) pause for thought along the way. Fred’s approach to life draws on the sublime (his series winning performance in the 2005 Ashes) and the ridiculous (singing Elvis Presley’s ‘Suspicious Minds’ in front of a live audience), from highs (making the transition to top TV presenter) to occasional lows (accidentally upsetting the lovely Bruce Forsyth), from the profane (discussing Shane Warne’s barnet with Hollywood royalty) to the profound (why ‘having a go’ leads to self-respect).

Freddie Flintoff - My World' is a lavishly illustrated and beautifully produced book which includes a stunning series of photographs.Having recently watched the documentary on BBC about Bulimia as presented and told by Flintoff (definitely worth a watch it was really well done) I found myself gravitating towards 'Right, said Fred' just to find out more about Flintoff outside of the TV screen.

This was another standard cricket book, talking about the early years and covering his career as he became a part of the England team. It reads exactly how he comes across on TV, I was literally reading it in his voice and it did make smile and chuckle. Following his retirement from sport, he joined the panel of BAFTA-winning A League of Their Own and is a presenter on BBC's ever-popular and award-winning Top Gear .
