About the Author
This is Lawrence Booth's second year as Editor of Wisden. He is also cricket writer for the Daily Mail and author of several critically acclaimed cricket books. He is one of the most respected and well liked authorities in the modern game.
As comprehensive and opinionated as ever. Independent on Sunday Wisden-omaniacs measure out their life in Test matches and sodden trips to county grounds, and the book becomes a form of autobiography. It captures a world in a single, squat volume, and for a moment allows us to forget that time must move on. -- Stephen Moss Observer Part of the establishment, yet prepared to challenge the establishment, Wisden has earned the respect and affection of every serious sports fan. In its 150th year, that iconic yellow jacket still marks a fixed point in a disorderly world. -- Simon Briggs Daily Telegraph After 150 editions, Wisden Cricketers' Almanack shows little sign of leaving the crease. The daddy reigns supreme. The Times The modern Wisden is a marvel of accuracy and inclusiveness -- John Woodcock The Times Nothing beats the reassuring thud on the doormat in April when Wisden lands, as a harbinger of the season to come and a reminder of seasons gone. -- Mike Atherton The Times Each Wisden, once acquired, is not just for a season, it is for life, a treasure to be used as research, diversion or, in its nicely fading yellow jacket, pure decoration. -- Alan Lee The Times A truly unique sporting institution -- Matthew Engel Financial Times A shelf-full of Wisdens is a sign of civilisation and a curious mind. -- Patrick Kidd The Times The 150th Wisden is a wonderful read... a treasure trove of superb writing Sunday Express Wisden allows me to dream New Statesman Worthy of a place on every sport lover's bookcase The Pink (Bournemouth) Vital if you're the kind of person who leaps from their chair at the dinner table and marches into the next room demanding to clarify what year Graham Gooch finally dropped David Gower. -- Mile Jupp Saga More reliable than a swallow, the sight of a new Wisden on the shelves is proof summer is here. Living North A 150-year-old book that draws in the profound and the absurd as well as the venerable and the modern, the meaningful and the inconsequential. It asks few favours. In words and numbers Wisden intelligently records cricket as it has been and as it is. The Cricketer The charm is in the incidental detail. -- Adrian Tahourdin TLS It's wonderful to delve into. Daily Express So encyclopedic is the Wisden annual's coverage of each season that every type of cricketer, from IPL millionaire star to trundler to abysmally bad author, can be found somewhere in its pages.
