Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: Geoffrey Boycott became one of the most controversial players in the history of cricket. His behaviour and manners upset many. In his later career he lost many of his hitherto loyal supporters and presided over the tearing apart of the Yorkshire Cricket Club.

For a time, he refused to tour the Indian sub-continent and exiled himself for three years from English Test cricket. He also joined a much criticised unofficial tour of South Africa. His actions appeared selfish and many suspected his motives. His career ended most unhappily.

And yet, Boycott has much to his credit. His career, from first ball to last, has been full of superlative cricket. His Test Match career, in particular, can stand comparison with all but a very select few.

In this book, Christopher Clark concentrates mainly on Boycotts record as a batsman. Others may wish to have their say about Boycotts off-the-field antics, but this book stands as a detailed account of what the man achieved. The many twists and turns of Boycotts career are matched with his Test Match triumphs and tribulations, but in the end, the reader must be left to judge the true worth of the man.
