Product description

Review

'You'll struggle to read a more compelling rugby story than this . . . heartily recommended' (Robert Kitson, Guardian rugby correspondent)

'An excellent read covering a brilliant journey' (Sir Clive Woodward)

'One of the all-time great sporting tales . . . Good things happen to good people' (George Gregan)

'Sevens Heaven, the story of how English coach Ben Ryan took the Fiji sevens side to Olympic gold, is the best rugby book I've ever read (I don't say that lightly) and as good as any sports book, from Mailer to Plimpton to Hauser, I've encountered in the almost sixty years since I got a Terry McLean '59 Lions tour book for Christmas. It's so good because it reads at times like a noir novel, and is stunningly open and honest. We know how the rugby ended, but Ryan's book is so gripping to tell you any other plot twists might spoil it for you' (Phil Gifford)

'We always knew a book by Ben Ryan wouldn't be dull, but Sevens Heaven surpasses all expectations. The Londoner's "three years of enlightenment" in the South Pacific makes such enthralling reading that I unhesitatingly call this one of the best rugby books ever written' (Alan Pearey Rugby World)

'An engrossing account of a remarkable story' (Will Macpherson Evening Standard)

'So many beautiful, provocative postcard descriptions of Fiji alongside fascinating, honest insights and humble lessons and truths' (Nick Heath, commentator)

'Entertaining and insightful' (The Rugby Paper)

Book Description

The uplifting, feel-good autobiography of Ben Ryan, the coach of the Olympic gold-medal winning Fijian rugby team
