In It to Win It: The Australian Cricket Supremacy by Peter Roebuck
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I was a great admirer of Peter Roebuck's thoughtful and eloquent newspaper articles in regards to cricket. It was he, along with a couple of others, who inspired me to consider journalism as a future career, but also inspired me to write about the things I loved, rather than what people thought I should write about.
This book is thoughtful and eloquent, and full of the stylised language that Roebuck was renown for. His informative views are well thought out, and well researched, as well as giving the reader a portrait of the times he is describing. My only real problem is that, because it is Roebuck at his best in terms of language, it can be a tough trail to follow if you cannot appreciate his written work. In fact, even those who can (I, in fact) found it to be a tough read.
He is a great loss to cricket journalism and prose, but if you have not read his work before, this may not be the best place to start. Old columns at CricInfo or the Sydney Morning Herald would be a better starting place.
