Cricket, for me, has become a metaphor mine -- a set of stories and patterns that throws light on the rest of my world. This is a book of anecdotes about scoring 100... what it's like, how to get there, where the feelings are (in all their variety). So in the quotes about getting in ("you can't score runs from the pavilion") or concentration ("only thinking one thought at a time") are insights not just about cricket but a lot more besides.
