5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Sports Biography, 17 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Real McCaw: The Autobiography (Hardcover)
This is one of the best autobiographies of a sports person I have read. It gives an in depth insight into the life and mentality of one of the game's greatest exponents. RMC comes across as a driven personality, who expects the highest standards for himself and those he leads. The detailed descriptions of some of the most significant games he has been involved in (especially the 2007 QF and 2011 Final), is remarkable. As someone who went through the emotional roller coaster of those two games in particular, this book "completed" the picture. The book is written in a time line that makes it very readable. The intricate planning, the execution of strategies and the physiological impact on players are narrated in such a personal way, the reader is enraptured as well as far better informed of the pressures and toll the game takes on its players.
