Lacks the flair of the player,
This review is from: Landing on My Feet: My Story (Hardcover)
This book did not excite me the way the man on the field used to do so often. I followed Mike Catt's career from the very early days and became a huge fan - despite the often unfair criticism he received from journalists and commentators. His record speaks for itself - and that's what you get here. The book comes over as a series of happenings and lists of events and matches. This is inevitable in a way but the problem is largely cancelled out by the moving descriptions of the time surrounding the difficult birth of his daughter - and not least, the revealing story about his relationship with Brian Ashton and its survival of the near-terminal problems that England found in the 2007 World Cup.
It's a good read for all those who look for flair and loyalty on the field - I just wish it had been written with a bit more dynamism.
