Obama and cricket

I'm a user of the Advanced Books Exchange. And yesterday I received the following promotional email from them:
Yesterday's New York Times revealed President Barack Obama is reading Netherland by Joseph O'Neill. Netherland is an acclaimed novel addressing the impact of 9-11, but the book also concentrates on cricket and how sections of New York's immigrant community are devoted to a game completely alien to most Americans. The President will learn much about cricket and how it is a game governed by patience, controlled aggression, guile and unspoken rules.
From batting lessons from Brian Lara to reading novels about cricket, Obama is clearly set to make American history in more than one way.

Read it recently. Some parts of it will make any cricket lover go very goosebumpy. My thumbs up for Netherland.
