Product description

Review

What elevates this book above the usual pulp of players' lives is Robinson's candour... the book has been a cathartic exercise in facing his demons. (The Times 20030927)

A remarkable autobiography, the best of its kind since Lance Armstrong's 'It's Not About the Bike'. (The Guardian 20030927)

One of the most extraordinary stories involving a modern-day sportsman. (Daily Telegraph 20030927)

Format: Hardcover
Robinson comes from poverty to having it all - success, money, life in the fast-lane, 'the flash car, the bright lights', but it gets more interesting when he states 'it is not the answer to being happy', (a bit of an understatement for having suicidal thoughts he reveals elsewhere). But then he finds true contentment and his drink / relationship problems evapourate after a spiritual rethink...
Although the high proportion of cliches makes some parts read like a GCSE essay, this only points to the genuineness of Jason Robinson's amazing tale. I'm not a fanatical fan, but this 'rags to riches' triumph has a general appeal and can only be essential reading for rugby enthusiasts.

This is a must read for rugby fans and fans of Jason Robinson. Written by the man himself critically and honestly, it was thoroughly enjoyable to read about the man who tore defences to pieces in both codes of the game, but as easy as he made it look on the field, it was never easy for him off the field. This is a great read for people aspiring to the heights of professional sport to show them not only how difficult it is to get there but stay there without disheartening aspirations. Great read!

The book is a good book for any rugby fan - Jason did well in the World Cup - but also for those wanting to know more about the impact that a real faith in a real God can have on a life.

Jason outlines the public and not so public parts of his life. which have all shaped him as a likeable and gifted human being.. his early struggles with drink and the rise of his Rugby career, his pinnacle of finding God, and then living for him, and expressing himself through his Rugby . his wife clearly plays a significant and wonderful role in keeping him grounded, shame to here that he has repaid this later in life with his adultery.. but this book is a good read of a half life of a drunken reformed character , who still has feet of clay, but as every athlete and Christian knows, its not how you start a race ,but how and where you finish it..

I've always admired Jason Robsinson from his early days in Rugby League and in this book he tells the story of his successes and also his (admittedly few) failures. It's an easy book to read and it's obvious that his family and his Christain faith means a great deal to him.
His ability has never been in question but he questioned his motivation and changed his life.
It's a salutary read and he is quite humble.
Recommend it, especially the chapters about the World Cup.

I'm a huge Jason Robinson fan so I looked forward to reading his autobiography--of course one need not mention writing an autobiography before one's playing career is finished. It's de rigeur in the footballing world to write autobiographies during one's playing days and rugby union is following suit.
That said, Finding My Feet is actually more about Jason's struggles to overcome issues from his childhood and bouts of drinking when he found success as a rugby league star.
Supporters hoping to glean important nuggets about various league or union matches will probably be disappointed as Jason and his ghost writer tend to steer from controversy. The closest one gets to that is the problems that befell Wigan in the late 90s. The troubled 2001 Lions tour is recounted through Jason's diary notes, meaning that Jason only briefly comments about Graham Henry's demanding training regimen.
Jason's signature moment thus far--his switch of rugby codes--is suprisingly not delved into with too much detail. The book presents this switch as something not all that unexpected.
If you take the sport out of the story, the book is an inspirational tale of one man putting his demons aside to embrace religion and family life. Surely Jason will have been happy with the message that this conveys. However, I for one am hoping he will write a second book when his playing days are finished and when he need not spare anyone else's blushes.

Clearly a rugby hero, and a great player but I found some of his views a little over the top, especially the religious element. Whilst I understand he had an epiphany and became born again, I don't think you need it ramming down your throat, so got a little tired of it cropping up as often as it did, which was a shame, as it detracted from the reason a lot of people would buy the book- the rugby

What a truelly remarkable book this is, having finished reading Dallaglio's recent book(and thoroughly enjoying it) i scouted about for books by my other England rugby heros and came across this. Jason write's in an easy-read style and is very honest about his life, up-bringing and faith, which i found intriguing. A must-read, would recomend to anyone.
