Guy Pratt came of age just as bass playing became sexy. Having dallied with punk legend Sylvain Sylvain, Pratt suddenly found himself on Top of the Pops and supporting David Bowie with smooth Australian outfit Icehouse. He became bass player to the stars, crawling from studio to bar and hotel to stadium Portakabin with the likes of Pink Floyd, Robert Palmer, Womack &Womack and Bryan Ferry. Guy has recorded with everyone from Madonna and Michael Jackson to McFly.

Excellent stories, great renditions (hilarious imitations of rock celebs. I loved the Madonna impersonation). This book is a riot!

Shortlisted for the British Book Awards, Sports Book of the Year, 2007.
It seemed a simple enough idea at the outset: to assemble a team of 11 men to play cricket on each of the seven continents of the globe - except that's not a simple idea at all...

What a brilliant account of the travails of this group of cricket fanatics, and an excellent performance by Glen McCready. His accents and intonations had me in splits and drawing amused looks in crowded metros when I couldn't stop chucking. This one is up there with one of my favourite audio books. The fact that the author is diagnosed with late stage cancer towards the end of this shook me up, very badly. What an absolute shame, and I will be purchasing his other book 'This thing of darkness'. Cricket fan or not, Penguins stopped play' is a highly recommend read for all

An Englishman's continuing search through space and time for a decent cup of tea....Arthur Dent's accidental association with that wholly remarkable book The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy has not been entirely without incident. Arthur has travelled the length, breadth and depth of known, and unknown, space. He has stumbled forwards and backwards through time.

Simon Jones absolutely kills it with his performance. His Zaphod in particular, had me in splits.
