As It Was Summary

As It Was: The Memoirs by Fred Trueman

Fred Trueman is a national treasure, a sporting legend whose fame extends far beyond the world of cricket. His dazzling performances raised the spirit of the nation, struck terror into the hearts of opponents and lead him to become the first cricketer to take 300 Test wickets.

Written with Fred's characteristic honesty and wit, As It Was tells his remarkable story, from the small village upbringing to his youthful debut for Yorkshire, from the Test triumphs to his frustrations with the cricketing establishment. But this is only half the story. Candidly, Fred recalls his life away from cricket: the stresses and strains of his first marriage; the camaraderie of Test Match Special and his successful career as an after-dinner speaker.

Bursting with riotous anecdotes, warm humour and trenchant opinion, this is a peerless autobiography by a true sporting icon.
