James Taylor ☆ James Taylor: Cut Short TEXT

James Taylor was born in Burrough on the Hill Leicestershire in 1990 A sporting phenomenon from an early age he chose to forge a life in cricket establishing himself as one of the country's leading batsmen and an England regular And then tragedy struck In April 2016 a serious heart condition left Taylor fighting for his life in the changing room Told he faced possible death if he played cricket or exercised ever again James's bright and brilliant career was over at the age of 26 In Cut Short Taylor reveals his route to the top On the way he describes how he encountered prejudice against his size and how his Test debut was overshadowed by the negative attentions of Kevin Pietersen He takes us through the highs and lows of his international career including a century against the Australians and a closeup view of the unsavory nature of David Warner With the world at his feet Taylor reveals just what it was like to have sporting ambition snatched away right at the point of international breakthrough He relives in breathless detail the horrific events of the day he thought he was going to die and his desolation at watching a fine sporting career torn from his grasp The aftermath was a battle bigger than any he ever encountered on the pitch a battle to rebuild his life and make sense of the personal bombshell with which he had been afflicted and unexpectedly a battle for his future At the same time he was getting used to a body which on several occasions left him fearing for his existence That James has emerged from these dark days with courage good humor and renewed ambition is testament to a remarkable personality Cut Short is the story of a true never say die character A genuinely moving autobiography and you believed everything that he wrote down Taylor really got across the emotions of a patient with an incurable illness and taught me a few things coming from a medical perspective It was good to get a perspective of the changing England team as well as Taylor straddled the gap between the no 1 test team and the no 1 ODI team So that appeals to the cricket minded readerUnfortunately the book feels like it was written prematurely with Taylor now involved as a selector for England and it seems that his coaching career has progressed much further recently There were also a few spelling and grammar mistakes which took me out of the book

James Taylor Cut ShortJames Taylor was born in Burrough on the Hill Leicestershire in 1990 A sporting phenomenon from an early age he chose to forge a life in cricket establishing himself as one of the country's leading batsmen and an England regular And then tragedy struck In April 2016 a serious heart condition left Taylor fighting for his life in the changing room Told he faced possible death if he played cricket or exercised ever again James's bright and brilliant career was over at the age of 26 In Cut Short Taylor reveals his route to the top On the way he describes how he encountered prejudice against his size and how his Test debut was overshadowed by the negative attentions of Kevin Pietersen He takes us through the highs and lows of his international career including a century against the Australians and a closeup view of the unsavory nature of David Warner With the world at his feet Taylor reveals just what it was like to have sporting ambition snatched away right at the point of international breakthrough He relives in breathless detail the horrific events of the day he thought he was going to die and his desolation at watching a fine sporting career torn from his grasp The aftermath was a battle bigger than any he ever encountered on the pitch a battle to rebuild his life and make sense of the personal bombshell with which he had been afflicted and unexpectedly a battle for his future At the same time he was getting used to a body which on several occasions left him fearing for his existence That James has emerged from these dark days with courage good humor and renewed ambition is testament to a remarkable personality Cut Short is the story of a true never say die character This is a well written book that tells the story of how an individual can bounce back from adversity with the right sort of love and support from friends and family a fate that sadly befell James Taylor just when he was on the verge of establishing himself as an international England cricket player James Taylor comes over as a decent sort with his life being put into some perspective by his daily battle against the heart condition he suffers from The chapters that deal with his diagnosis and his gradual coming to terms with a career ending bolt from the blue are heart rending and will certainly make the reader wince at the detail However I would say that this is a difficult book to market; with it trying to straddle the line between a normal cricketing autobiography whilst at the same time trying to appeal to the early morning TV 'Loose Women' show type of audience The clever tactic of alternating one chapter about cricket with one about his heart condition works with the human story being the increasingly dominant one that emerges as the book draws to a close Mr Taylor seems a nice chap but he was irritated by some of the cricketers he mixed with most notably Dominic Cork who upsets James with a cringe worthy comment Kevin Pietersen that enigma of modern English cricket also comes in for some flak although this hardly grants James entry into a uniue club They say you can always judge a man by his friends so it comes as no surprise to read that the criminally underrated Chris Woakes is his best mate in sport a man uniformly known as the 'nicest man in cricket' even though he supports the Villa It would be nice to see Mr Taylor have a go back at Bob Willis on the Verdict the next time he sticks the boot into his 'best man' as he certainly needs some 'love' from the cricketing media Funnily enough the lasting impression I had of this book was that young men who go into sport have little idea about living a 'normal' life as nearly everything Mr Taylor describes is done for him by cricket clubs etc In many ways it is akin to men who go into the army and just follow orders Still no matter this is a uality memoir that shows a genuine human being doing his best to literally cling onto life in an ever changing world Well done to you James and long may you last
