In an era of cricketing superstars, 'Freddie' Flintoff outshines the rest. His magnificent spell of fast bowling at Lord's and his electrifying run out of Ricky Ponting at The Oval were major turning points in the recapture of the Ashes by England in 2009. It was victory in the 2005 Ashes series that cemented Flintoff's place in the nation's heart, when his match-winning performances helped England regain the Ashes after eighteen years. In Ashes to Ashes he writes not only of his many highlights but also reveals his feelings of frustration during his periods out of the game through ankle and knee injuries, and the anxiety that has followed the major operations he has had to undergo. For many years, Flintoff has been the spearhead of the English bowling attack. Moreover, with his powerful hitting and his frequent heroic performances he has so often spurred on his colleagues and thrilled his avid fans. Flintoff provides an insider's account of the build-up to the long-awaited 2009 Ashes series in which he played such a vital role. Andrew Flintoff's lively and very personal account of his last four years of Test cricket is both informative and compelling.
