No Holding Back: The Autobiography (English Edition) Michael Holding for me was one of the greatest fast bowlers of all time His run up was balletic and athletic in one I have no idea what I would have felt if he was standing near the boundary rope starting his run up He details the high and lows of West Indian cricket with honesty His other parts of his life with his love for horses rounds it off I expect him to continue to excel in whatever he does Excellent. I m not an avid reader but do enjoy the sport of cricket immensly.Mr Michael Holding tells his version of events in a very readable and enjoyable style Giving the reader an inner view of some of the goings on in and around West Indian and cricket in general.Thought it might have been scandalous in it s revelations as Mr Holding appears to have built up a reputation for his no nonsense and forthrite comments but enoyed the content from cover to cover I think the vast majority of cricket fans would really enjoy this book. This book was as the title suggests No holding back,straightforward honest opinions by one of the games Legends a very enjoyable read just like his bowling very fast paced OK Its a very interesting book, well written and of interest to all cricket lovers I would recommend this book and am pleased to have read it. The autobiography of West Indies fast bowling legend turned Sky pundit, Michael HoldingAs one of the fastest bowlers the world has seen, Michael Holding went by the haunting nickname Whispering Death, claimingTest wickets Despite having not laced his bowling boots since , it remains a fitting sobriquet As a commentator and administrator, Holding has delivered his views on cricket in the same manner that he played the game he speaks softly with a rich Jamaican rhythm and is calculated in either criticism or compliment NO HOLDING BACK charts his effortless transition from one of the great players to one of the great pundits Holding graphically describes his days as a player, looking back at how he tried to deliberately hurt batsmen on the wastelands of Kingston, and his first match for Jamaica when he almost collapsed from exhaustion after only four overs There is time, too, to divulge what it was like to tour with the West Indies, and unmissable insights about sharing a dressing room with other legends of the game like Clive Lloyd, Sir Viv Richards and Malcolm Marshall Holding does not shirk the big issues, as he discusses how the West Indies have slipped following their halcyon days, openly assesses Brian Lara and laments the hypocrisy over the state of the game in the region The controversy surrounding the Allen Stanford m spectacle, the ICCs handling of the abandoned England v Pakistan match, player power, illegal bowling actions and the threat of Twenty to the Test game are all subjects which Holding tackles with characteristic knowledge and class Great book A very interesting read.
