I picked this book up a few years ago not really knowing who Stuart Barnes was apart from a Sky pundit. This book is truly revealing of the man and his passion for a sport. Full of wonderful quotes such as 'Why do you have to be a non-conformist like everyone else???'An excellent read, powerful in parts an downright hilarious in others.

Stuart's great mix of experience, punditry and humour - that he also brings to his TV analysis and commentary. I have just gone back to it and it's still a good read.
He played in an exciting time, that is so different from the professional era

Wordy, overly complex prose wrecks a good story. 2 Oct 1998
By Mark Robbins (mrobbins@bc.sympatico.ca) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Stuart Barnes tries too hard to use every word in the English language in his book on a life in rugby.
After reading the first third I had to take the book back to the library. It was a bit like wading through treacle after a while, what's the point? who's he trying to impress? i sure hope he doesn't speak the way he writes.
On the flip side Barnes' views of rugby, in particular English rugby are refreshing and informative.
In conclusion; if you like your prose plain and to the point you will find this book hard going. If you are a big Stuart Barnes or Bath RFC fan then this is probably the best way for an outsider to get an inside view.
