I thoroughly recommend the Peter Oborne book on Basil d'Oliveira and the entire episode that led to apartheid - era South Africa being ostracised by the worldwide sporting community.

It reads like a spy thriller at some points, with a bit of cricket thrown in as well!

Brears' latest is a weighty tome, and I am a third of the way through it. It does fall back upon some anecdotes told in a different light than in "The Art of Captaincy", but now that I have got the pace of it, I am enjoying this as a more cerebral approach to the whole art of playing sport or life and feeling at one with the subject.
