In essence, The Shorter Wisden is a glass of the finest champagne rather than the whole bottle. The contents remain authoritative, restorative, provocative – addictive, even – and wide-ranging. So readers can skip from the history of the hat-trick to an arresting account of cricketing mannerisms. Or, more soberly, move from the pros and cons of the new T20 league to the ugly thread of sexism running through the game. Add a startlingly original examination of the career of Jimmy Anderson and the influential Notes by the Editor, and there is vintage fare for all. A sparkling line-up includes Gideon Haigh, Tanya Aldred, Mike Selvey, Matthew Engel and Zafar Ansari. Every front-of-book article is here, fizzing with life and vim. You'll come back for more.

"There can't really be any doubt about the cricket book of the year, any year: it's
obviously Wisden" Andrew Baker in the Daily Telegraph
