"The Sound of Summer" Jim Maxwell

Just quietly I don't often enjoy reading!
   That said, some books I can't put down [often autobiographies] while others join the pile of six awaiting another try. I've just read Jim Maxwell's excellent memoir since Christmas Eve!! Interesting, fills in some gaps from newspaper articles, gives great insight into the ABC and it's characters.

Jim offers honest and generous assessments of various cricketers, Captains and others. Since his medical incident during the local van based coverage of the Olympic Hockey from Rio he's been confined to 'phoning in' his insights and observations of the cricket... typically sharp and relevant comments!!

Wishing him well in his stroke rehab and wondering if I take the book to the SCG and see if he's about for autographs!!
