Head on : the autobiography by Ian Botham( Book )

3 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Voted the greatest English cricketer of the 20th century by the fans, Sir Ian Botham is the English game's one true living legend and his story both on and off the pitch reads like a Boy's Own rollercoaster ride. From the Miracle Ashes of 1981 to the wrong kind of headlines - with accusations of drink and drugs, affairs and ball-tempering - Beefy gives us the definitive story of his turbulent but remarkable life, in his own bluff, no-nonsense words
Botham's century : my 100 great cricketing characters by Ian Botham( Book )

4 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One hundred colourful portraits of the cricketing characters whom Ian Botham has come across in his eventful career and who have influenced the game for good in his time: from top players, umpires and coaches to pop stars, writers and philanthropists. Among the cast of characters who will feature in Botham's own Who's Who of cricket will be top players such as Viv Richards, Brian Close and Shane Warne. Umpire Dickie Bird and the late John Arlott will also have a place in Beefy's Hall of Fame. Others associated with cricket include Mick Jagger, Sir Paul Getty and Nancy (who used to cook the lunches at Lord's and was responsible for many a cricketer's expanding waistline); and many more who in Beefy's opinion have been a positive influence in the game during his era. Witty, entertaining and controversial, these portraits are sure to incite a plethora of opinions from those both inside and outside the game. Lavishly illustrated, this book will be a treasured item for all cricket fans in the lead up to Christmas 2001

CRICKET. Life is very rarely dull or quiet when Sir Ian Botham is around. One of Britain's greatest sportsmen, 'Beefy' has always worked hard and played hard, and this book reflects that.

With the help of his huge network of friends, colleagues, team-mates and opponents, he has put together a wonderful collection of the best and the funniest stories from the cricket world. Featuring contributions from legends such as Shane Warne, fellow commentators and former team-mates including David Gower, and many of the current England team, this is a book the reader can pick up and immediately be privy to some of cricket's strangest and most hilarious moments, from the player who turned up to a game without any clothes on to avoid being fined for wearing the wrong kit to the cricketing legend whose desire for a burger landed him in hot water
The Botham report by Ian Botham( Book )

7 editions published between 1997 and 2017 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1997 and now available as an ebook. Controversial, hard-hitting, and thought provoking. In The Botham Report, the man who for nearly two decades thrilled cricket fans all over the world, gives his forthright answer to the question: "What is wrong with English cricket'" Botham is heavily critical of the TCCB and the way in which the England team regressed during years of mismanagement. He reviews events both at home on the county scene and abroad and, in his new role as technical advisor, he gives a first-hand account of the 1997 summer battle for the Ashes. Looking ahead, Botham outlines his ten-point plan for the future structure of English cricket, involving major issues like the pay of county cricketers and a two-tier county championship, and reports on the results of a questionnaire sent out to the chairman, chief executive and captain of every county assessing what is wrong with the game in this country. A new chapter for this paperback edition highlights the progress English cricket has made since Botham's involvement, as reflected in the team's performance on the 1997/98 winter tour to the West Indies. 'The nature of the book is astonishing, a real tour de force' The Cricketer magazine
Cricket my way by Ian Botham( Book )

2 editions published between 1989 and 2017 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ian Botham's approach to cricket is simple: keep fit, play hard, aim to win and, above all, enjoy the game. His advice on the skills is equally straightforward: attempt to master the basics ... 'ut never be afraid to try something new. In Cricket My Way, Ian elaborates on his philosophy, explaining just why a positive attitude to all matches can pay dividends and how much he, despite his reputation as a brilliant individualist, places a heavy reliance on the traditional skills of the game. Packed with examples from his own experiences, and illustrated with both photographs and diagrams, Ian's book is a forceful affirmation of his view that cricket, played well, can be the most exciting game in the world

Absolutely foxed by Graeme Fowler( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With riotous stories of life on England tours, partying with Ian Botham and Elton John, combined with a moving account of his battle with mental-health issues, Graeme Fowler's Absolutely Foxed is a cricket memoir unlike any other. Seen by many as a maverick, happy-go-lucky figure, Fowler became a hugely influential coach, and is one of the most original thinkers about the game. He's battled and won against the best spinners in India, and the fastest bowlers from the West Indies - he's even found himself at the centre of a tabloid storm. In this book, he looks back over his 40 years in the professional game, spending 16 years on the county circuit with Lancashire and Durham, and three years as an England international - a period that was cut short by a life-threatening injury. He followed that with a spell working on Test Match Special, before running the Durham Centre of Excellence for 18 years. Alastair Campbell provides an Afterword in which he commends Fowler's support for others suffering from mental-health problems; Fowler's own experiences should provide help and inspiration for those dealing with similar problems. In his Foreword, lifelong friend Sir Ian Botham describes Fowler as 'one of the gutsiest I ever encountered', but also points out how he 'made a dressing room tick'. Those elements of courage, knowledge and humour are all present in Absolutely Foxed - a truly unmissable read
