Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “By his own admission, Robin Smith is not a naturally self-confident man. In this book he openly discusses his mental approach to the game, with all its strengths and weaknesses. He describes his psychological development — from a young boy who got up at 4.30 every morning to practise to Test batsman, and tells us how he is motivated, how he concentrates, and how he copes with fear. In the final chapters, Smith reviews in detail a Test match and a One-Day International innings, both of which provide a graphic illustration of all the ideas brought up in the book. With valuable insights from Dr. Graham Jones, Brian Mason, Mike Brearley, and David Gower, Robin Smith — Quest for Number One is not just a serious study, but a fascinating read for every cricket fan.”
