Format: Hardcover
I wasn't entirely sure what to expect when I was given this book. Of course, I grew up listening to Bill's wonderful rugby commentary and the book brought childhood memories flooding back. But the story is something altogether more than a trip down memory lane with reflections on rugby greats. Bill's life has contained it's fair share of drama and tragedy. Weaved together with his love of the game and his professional life I found it an absolute pleasure to read. There is something wonderfully noble about how Bill tells his story and it's difficult not to be left with the feeling that we have lost something unique from our Saturday afternoons. If, as I am, you are a former rugby player you will also find his views on the modern game thought provoking.
I found the book a breath of fresh air. It puts a lot of things in perspective and reminds you of how rich a life can be.

Many people think they know Bill McLaren from his globally-recognised voice, but this book provides the real life story of the man from Hawick. It is a fascinating read and well written - a good tribute to the legendary commentator, journalist, teacher and all-round rugby ambassador.

It was a sad day when I heard that Bill McLaren had passed away and we would never hear that wonderful iconic voice again. Having spent my childhood listening to the commentary of Bill, especially during the Five nations (as it was when I was young), it is great to hear him speak of his life and how much pleasure he gained from the game and the people who surrounded him during his life. If like me you remember listening to Bill, doing what he did best, then this CD will bring back great memories and I cannot recommend it enough! Enjoy!!

Despite being an Edinburgh man myself( not from the borders) I enjoyed this book. It is a comfortable read,even if you're not a big rugby fan, but it helps. I was brought up listening to Bill McLaren, and have always been a huge fan. I considered him to be one of the best and fairest commentators ever and I miss his melodic border tones.
