Peter Roebuck,

It Takes All Sorts: Celebrating cricket's colourful characters
 
 
In It Takes All Sorts, Peter Roebuck meanders through his 25-year career in reporting cricket, to reveal the people and the personalities who have touched his life and contributed to his life-long passion for the game.

Roebuck provides warts-and-all insights into the comings and goings, greats and not-so-greats, debuts and retirements, the controversies of recent professional cricket and great innings in between. Roebuck has seen it all and isn't afraid to comment: he's interviewed Sir (or is that Saint?) Garfield Sobers' mum, was on the scene (and on the front page) when Gilchrist ‘walked', poked gentle fun at Inzamam's fielding, and touched many with his account of young Sri Lankan boys playing cricket on a beach in Galle.

Peter Roebuck pulls no punches - whether friend or foe, all his subjects are linked by the great and noble game of cricket and he is not afraid to tell it how he sees it.
