Full of illuminating anecdotes, piercing insights and unsparing self-analysis from the former England batsman * The Cricketer * The man who famously left the 2012/13 Ashes tour on account of stress related illness takes us inside the heart of the England dressing room and the head of a professional sportsman. Unguarded charts the highs of Trott's role in propelling England to the summit of World Cricket before a shattering reversal. It uses accounts from team and family members to illustrate the pressure facing professional sportspeople in the modern era and how dangerous expectations of others and oneself can breach any walk of life * GQ * A painfully honest book characterised by a dry wit: Trott's eyebrow is perpetually raised at the absurdity of it all. He can be thin-skinned, but what could have been a gruelling book is notable for its emotional intelligence * Daily Mail * Former England cricketer Jonathan Trott's autobiography, Unguarded is just that, a no holds barred account of Trott's rise to the heights of the sport, helping to clinch the Ashes in 2009, and subsequent descent into depressive illness * Choice Magazine * Unguarded is not just the story of Jonathan Trott, it is also the story of the rise and fall of an England team that reached great heights before imploding just as spectacularly * All Out Cricket *
