I have always been a fan of Jonny. His modest, down to Earth personality twinned with his incredible desire to win and be the best is the recipe that deserves him the title of a legend of rugby union. However this book runs deeper than him talking of himself, and his glorious return from being injury stricken. rather, Jonny readily puts himself forward as an example of the darker sides of searching for perfection in yourself. He does not seek remorse for his wilderness days and his mind frame after the 2003 world cup, but instead justifies why it was he thought like that, and what he had to do to get over the demons he faced. He urges the reader to relate and offers personal experience on the best way to tackle the problems. The excerpts from Steve Black, his close friend, provide inspiration on applying yourself as much as you can, be it in the workplace, on the pitch, or striving to be a better person. Relating to his successful teams such as Wales or Newcastle Falcons, 'Blackie' puts life lessons into an easy, relatable format through the median of rugby.
Seriously, for all who look for inspiration, or are open to new ideas for thinking, this book is brilliant, as you can come back to it again and again for quotes and extracts.
