Simon Hughes’ new book


Pleased to note Simon Hughes, ex-cricketer, commentator and author has finished his latest book (think he finished it in the summer). Morning Everyone: A Sportswriter’s Life. Not out til October but worth pre-ordering. His other books, including Yakking Around The World on the right, are excellent too.

I like Hughes. He’s not a smooth operator as Mark Nicholas; doesn’t have the dry wit of Richie Benaud; is more sensible than the idiotic Dermot Reeve but has become a much respected “analyst” of Cricket with Channel 4 and knows his stuff.
