    Twelve years ago, Geoffrey Boycott received the diagnosis that tore his world apart: he had cancer of the tongue. Having faced down the fastest bowlers during his career as one of England's greatest-ever batsmen, he now had to take on an even more daunting foe, one that he could not see and where he had to rely on others to help him take on the challenge. But, with the support of his long-time love Rachael and their daughter Emma, as well as a great medical team, he set out on his most crucial fight yet.

    After he had recovered, Boycott emerged as a different man, with a new perspective on life. This book tells the story not only of his struggle with cancer, but also of his love for the game of cricket, which continues to be his passion. In 'The Corridor of Certainty' he disputes the myth about the Packer 'Revolution', as well as providing brilliant portraits of his close friends Brian Clough and Fred Trueman, tow of British sport's greatest characters.

    The modern-day game does not escape his scrutiny, either. Whether it is his views on Kevin Pietersen or his strategy for how England can bounce back from their last Ashes debacle, he is never less than frank and forthright on the big issues facing cricket. But for anyone who thinks they know what to expect from Geoffrey Boycott, be prepared for a few surprises along the way. After all, who would have thought he would feng shui his house? Or that his favourite singer is Katy Perry.
