I can only describe this book as to be one of the most honest and truthful autobiographies I have read in a long time. Funny in places, Barrie's book is well written and very difficult to put down once you have started it. A great read for Leeds Rhinos fan, and for for all other Rugby League fans.

You could enjoy reading this book if you knew nothing about Rugby League, if you are a Rugby League fan then it's a must buy. Barrie McDermott has always given 100% to every club he's played for and gives 100% here. Read it and laugh..........

If you are into Rugby League this is a great book. It gives a great insight into the life of a rugby player (especially one like Barry Mac)
Hilarious in places. Worth a purchase any day

BRILL! This story about a legend of rugby league makes all the others look like lightweights! Barries' tale takes you through the ups and downs of a rugby player and how he made it to the top to become one of the best known players in the modern era. If your kid plays rugby league, get them to read this book so they know what they have to do to make it in a hard game!

TOP 50 REVIEWERon 16 January 2014
I always thought of Barrie McDermott as a kind of ultimate rugby player, larger than life in every sense. This book is both an entertaining and sensitive testimony to a season in life that is over all too quickly - no one could justify the title better, even more so with the personal disadvantage he has had to overcome.

I read this book on holiday and i couldn't put it down, i even held it up when i was in the sea. It's a remarkable story really, the toughest team sport on earth, the roughest position in that game, a physically challenging, energy sapping, at times brutal sport, and to do it with one eye? Unthinkable. Barrie's story flows with ease as his yarns intertwine wonderfully well. A top bloke and a great book.

This is a quality book about the up and downs of a professional rugby player and what it takes to get to the top!!!
Barrie Mac is no doubt one the hardest men ever to play the warrior game that is rugby league and this book catches the lot from losing an eye and the challenges that faced him with his disablity to representing great britain at the top of level against both the aussies and kiwis alike.
This is a must read for any rugby league fan.
