Book Description

Stanley Gene’s book is not your ‘run of the mill’ sporting autobiography.

Read his revealing account of family turmoil, snake attacks, political violence, mud sledging in the rainforest and cannibalism. Oh and of course plenty of Rugby.

At 22 years old how do you cope with unimaginable challenges in a strange land? Such as reversing a car, microwave ovens and SNOW!

Enjoy reading just how Stan did and didn’t cope – and how he became one of the most popular figures in rugby league.

* Stan’s birth certificate may be published!

The book is both Hilarious and Fascinating. Attenborough meets Crocodile Dundee meets Northern England type of thing.

Very well written it had me in stitches most of the way through but also gripped as I read about life in PNG.

I rarely read books but read this in 3 nights.

4.0 out of 5 stars What a tale! 30 Oct. 2014
The Grateful Dead once sang "what a long, strange trip it's been" and Stanley Gene's life story could have taken that title too. Not your run-of-the-mill sporting autobiography, this is a fascinating, entertaining and eccentric story.
