Summary
One of the leading - and most lethal - fast bowlers of all time, Curtly Ambrose played 98 Tests and 176 One Day Internationals for the West Indies, and for much of his career topped the ICC player rankings. Part of the iconic West Indian teams of the late 1980s whilst also bearing witness to their decline in the 1990s, he was a formidable sportsman, and has unique insight into the extreme highs and debilitating lows of the international game. From his colourful upbringing in Antigua, through to the turbulent politics of both nation and dressing room, Curtly's autobiography provides a fascinating insight into the career of an iconic sportsman
