The Cricket Blog has teamed up with The History Press to give away three copies of Paul Nixon’s autobiography, Keeping Quiet. Much like his playing style, it is an entertaining read and will be enjoyed by cricket lovers everywhere.
Keeping Quiet brings together stories and emotions from 20 years in the First Class game. It is testament to Nixon’s standing within cricket that the forewords to his book are provided by no lesser lights than Steve Waugh and Sir Viv Richards.
From the off, the book buzzes around the life of Paul Nixon. From 2011 Twenty20 finals day to his first memories of growing up on a farm and an innate fear of spelling tests, Nixon maps his route to the top and the demons that he encountered en route and when he got there.
There are stories featuring some of the world’s greatest players; Andrew Flintoff, Kevin Pietersen, Hansie Cronje, to name but three and there are stories of sledging, winning, losing and even match-fixing.
You don’t need us to tell you more about Paul Nixon. You’ll likely already have your mind made up about him. Either way, this book is well worth a read and you can win a copy here.
To win one of three copies of Keeping Quiet, simply pop the answer to the following question in the subject bar of an e-mail and send it to email@example.com
