Book orders coming in!

I have had quite a few enquiries for signed copies of my latest book 'In Their Own Words: Derbyshire Cricketers in Conversation' over the past few days.

Thank you to everyone who has been in touch.

I am more than happy to sell them to you at any time, of course, but if needed for Christmas gifts, please get in touch by the end of the coming weekend, which will hopefully allow time for them to get through the festive mail rush if posted on Monday morning at the latest.

You can, of course, buy them post free through Amazon or Waterstones or order through your local book shop.

If you're still wondering whether to buy a copy, or add it to your Christmas list, here's what a few reviews have said about it:


"A very satisfying read. Particularly rewarding. In Their Own Words is an excellent book, and will be of interest well beyond the East Midlands and the Peak District."

"The anecdotes are interesting, quirky and as funny as anecdotes should be, and yet there's something a little different here. A compendium of tales and gossip, history and reminiscence. More than facts, more than memories and more than Dolman's own excellent knowledge of the game a passion for Derbyshire CCC."

"Inspired. Comes over well. Thoroughly enjoyed In Their Own Words. I have certainly found out more, enjoyed it and hope that other readers will read it and I wish Steve every success with it."

"Author Steve Dolman, formerly a Kirkby-in-Ashfield resident and Sherwood Hall Grammar pupil, recounts Derbyshire County Cricket Club's history in his new book In Their Own Words. Fascinating stories." --Derbyshire Times

"Steve Dolman will be known to many ACS members for his Lives in Cricket book on Edwin Smith. For me, this was one of the most enjoyable in the series and Dolman’s felicitous touch is again in evidence in this latest venture. There are echoes of Stephen Chalke’s pioneering work in capturing the oral history of the game, first seen in his Runs in the Memory, with a fund of stories that enrich a book bereft of obvious error" - Douglas Miller, Association of Cricket Statisticians and Historians.


Thank you to all those above for your generous reviews, which are much appreciated!

I am more than happy to sign copies, do talks and chat at your convenience, with talks for 2017 already starting to fill up.

Please feel free to get in touch at any time to

Payment for the book can be made through Paypal.
