Warwickshire batsman Jonathan Trott is taking part in a special signing session for Warwickshire Members and supporters at Edgbaston this coming Thursday (6 October) to celebrate the release of his autobiography, Unguarded.
Jonathan – who scored 1,051 First Class runs this season and 515 runs in Warwickshire’s victorious Royal London One-Day Cup campaign – will be signing copies of Unguarded in the Edgbaston Shop from 5pm for Members and from 5.30pm for non-members.
Arriving in-store at Edgbaston on Thursday and priced at £20, Jonathan’s autobiography takes readers to the heart of the England dressing room, and to the heart of what it is to be a professional sportsman.
Not only does it provide a unique perspective on a remarkably successful period in English cricket and its subsequent reversal, it also offers a fascinating insight into the rewards and risks faced as a sportsman carrying the hope and expectation of a team and a nation. And it’s a salutary tale of the dangers pressure can bring in any walk of life, and the perils of piling unrealistic expectations on yourself.
