Sir Alastair Cook Signing Autobiographies at The Cloudfm County Ground


Alastair Cook will be signing copies of his book “The Autobiography” at The Cloudfm County Ground next week.

After the close of play on Day Two (Tuesday 17 September) of our Specsavers County Championship fixture against Surrey, you can head to The Doug Insole Pavilion and meet the former England Captain, who will be signing books from 6:15pm.

In the book, he recounts his rise from Essex schoolboy to England star, the fiery fall-out with Kevin Pietersen and the ruthless decisions a Captain must make. He expands on the highs of leading England to their first series win in India in 28 years, the glory of four Ashes wins and what, finally, convinced him to leave international cricket.

The Times described the book as “bracingly honest about the brutal nature of professional cricket” whilst The Guardian said it was “a fascinating and layered book which delves into the psychological challenges of the game… a timely read.”

Alastair will also be hosting a Q & A session so make sure you come prepared with some questions to test the former England man.

Copies of his book will be available to purchase in the Essex Cricket Store for £20.
