5.0 out of 5 stars Ronan Hated by the Welsh but a MAestro
HAted Ronan O' Gara unless he played for the Lions or Munster as he was too often responsible for Ireland beating Wales. This book is great. Unbelievably for sportsmen he tells the truth. Well worth a read

3.0 out of 5 stars Unguarded? If only......
Was really looking forward to this book and it does give a decent insight into the life of a professional sportsman, but overall I was disappointed. It feels like a rush job, thrown out for the Christmas market off the back of O Gara calling it a day.

This review is from: Ronan O'Gara: Unguarded (Hardcover)
Was really looking forward to this book and it does give a decent insight into the life of a professional sportsman, but overall I was disappointed. It feels like a rush job, thrown out for the Christmas market off the back of O Gara calling it a day. He touches on interesting material (his difficult relationship with Jonny Sexton, Declan Kidney dropping him from the Ireland squad, his close friendship with Brian O Driscoll), but never covers any of these subjects in depth, and there is a sense of punches being pulled. A lot of the book is very technical too and would only appeal to the hardcore rugby fan I feel. Unguarded is a cut above the usual sporting autobiography but considering the man involved you would still expect the book to be better than this. If you are interested in sporting autobiographies Tony Cascarino's is the one to beat, the level of honesty in Cascarino's puts 99% of these books to shame.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ronan O Gara Unguarded, 9 Dec 2013
Excellent read. One of the best biography's of recent generations of players. It has very honest views on current players, coaches and rugby in general.

A fine read for a sports autobiography. Candid and informative and, for an Irish rugby supporter, well worth the purchase.

Bought this for my boyfriend for Christmas as he's a big Munster and rugby fan in general. He read it from cover to cover in no time. I've even dipped into it and quite enjoyed it.

Book arrived as promised! Excellent quality! It was a present for my husband, I dont think he's overly impressed with the content, but autobiographies can sometimes disappoint.
