Andrew Flintoff is the most exciting talent in world cricket today, the kind of player who comes along once in a generation. Named Man of the Series during the epic Ashes success of 2005, his powerful stroke play, aggressive fast bowling, brilliant slip-catching and enjoyment of the game made him a pivotal member of the winning team. This amazing book traces the progress of 'Freddie' from schoolboy prodigy to adult international star. As well as an outstanding sportsman, Freddie is revealed as intelligent man whose conscience would not have let him participate in the controversial tour of Zimbabwe, and a devoted father to his daughter Holly with his wife Rachael. As Flintoff said himself, 'To have been part of the team that brought the Ashes home is simply unbelievable.'
