One of British sport's wisest and most thoughtful figures, former England cricket captain Brearley reflects on his life and career.

Deeply thoughtful, erudite and elegantly framed, this book seamlessly blends all aspects of Mike Brearley’s life into a single integrated narrative. With wide-ranging meditations on sport, philosophy, literature, religion, leadership, psychoanalysis, music and more, Mike delves into his private passions and candidly examines the various shifts, conflicts and triumphs of his extraordinary life and career, both on and off the field. In conversation with Adam Bayfield.

"Whether discussing philosophy, psychoanalysis, literature or cricket . . . Brearley is compelling company" - Guardian
