*Standard hardback edition* The most famous sports book in the world, Wisden Cricketers' Almanack has been published every year since 1864. Highlights from this year's edition include Gideon Haigh on the men's Ashes, former England captain Mike Brearley on the captaincy of Ben Stokes, Jonathan Liew on the departure of Stuart Broad, Michael Collins on English cricket's equity problem, as well as articles by Ebony Rainford-Brent, Emma John, Harry Pearson, Sir Hilary Beckles and many more of the world's best sportswriters. As usual, Wisden includes the thought-provoking Notes by the Editor, the famous Cricketers of the Year awards, and the authoritative obituaries. And, as ever, there are reports and scorecards for every Test, together with forthright opinion, compelling features and comprehensive records. "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

It is a book of three parts: comment; record; and delightful minutiae, which always brings the most cheer. -- Mike Atherton * The Times *
The publication of Wisden is cricket’s equivalent of the state opening of Parliament. It’s another great edition. * Oborne and Heller on Cricket podcast *
The pages are stacked full of information, quirks and great analysis of the game, as well as being a wonderful record. -- Alison Mitchell * BBC World Service Stumped *
The big yellow book. The important one. The one aliens will be reading in hundreds of years’ time when we as a species have wiped ourselves out and they’ve come down to work out how cricket worked. * The Final Word podcast *
