I have been drawn into the six nations tournament primarily due to Wales's performance against England. It was like Rocky's first match where he waits to the last minute to win. So I was keen to find out a bit more about rugby and especially Welsh Rugby. I found this to be the ideal book as his enthusiasm for the game was very well written and I loved his appreciation for the fans that followed the teams to different continents. He is very open about his learning difficulties but it is very inspiring to see that this didn't hold him back and he managed to overcome the problems as he encountered them. It is great that it only takes about three hours to read so I think that these quick reads are an excellent idea. Although they are short you don't feel cheated, there is more than enough room to get their point across. Will be seeking out some more of these little books.

I'm a big rugby fan and SQ comes over as a really nice bloke on telly, the sort of chap you would love to share a few beers with listening to his stories. Unfortunately, this doesn't really come across in the book. He draws a sketch of his life to date in rugby and outside of it; however, I was hoping for a bit more colour and a bit more of his personality to shine through.

Having said that, I enjoyed the book and would recommend it for a couple of quid. I suppose I was just hoping to enjoy it a tad more.

Very readable and a good insight into this popular rugby player/presenters competitive career. He is not afraid to relate the very difficult times he went through in school when his dyslexia went undiagnosed and how his future could have gone down a very different, rocky path. It becomes quite clear why he embraces `The School of Hard Knocks` programme - to give those, that society has given up on, another chance and focus in life.
