In essence, The Shorter Wisden is a glass of the finest champagne rather than the whole bottle. The contents remain authoritative, restorative, provocative – addictive, even – and wide-ranging. So readers can skip from the history of the hat-trick to an arresting account of cricketing mannerisms. Or, more soberly, move from the pros and cons of the new T20 league to the ugly thread of sexism running through the game. Add a startlingly original examination of the career of Jimmy Anderson and the influential Notes by the Editor, and there is vintage fare for all. A sparkling line-up includes Gideon Haigh, Tanya Aldred, Mike Selvey, Matthew Engel and Zafar Ansari. Every front-of-book article is here, fizzing with life and vim. You'll come back for more. "There can't really be any doubt about the cricket book of the year, any year: it's obviously Wisden" Andrew Baker in the Daily Telegraph @WisdenAlmanack

Sachin Tendulkar, who retired from playing in 2014, is universally acknowledged as one of the greatest cricketers of all time – and arguably the greatest batsman ever. From the time Tendulkar made an appearance as a schoolboy cricketer in the 1989 Wisden Cricketers' Almanack to his retirement in 2014, Wisden on Tendulkar records the highlights of an exceptional career – handpicked from all Wisden publications over a quarter of a century and curated for a global audience, with special appeal to an Indian readership. Wisden on Tendulkar includes reports from his first Test in Pakistan as a 16-year-old – where a Waqar Younis bouncer had him bleeding – to his final Test at home, when a country wept as it said goodbye to its most celebrated sporting icon. The most prolific run-getter of all time, the most diverse Test and one-day batsman, the world's most eminent cricketing hero, Tendulkar has many records to his name. His place in cricketing history is especially significant – not just for all the records he broke or comparisons with Don Bradman, but for what Tendulkar meant to a young nation finding its voice in a globalised world. Wisden on Tendulkar includes: - Cricketer of the Year feature (1997) - Batting for a Billion article (2003) - The Long Farewell piece (2014) - The ebbs and flows of Tendulkar's 24-year-long career - Scorecards of his most significant Test and ODI matches - Colour plate section - Detailed list of records
