The autobiography of Welsh rugby star Shane Williams --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
From the Back Cover
Shane Williams has spent almost a decade thrilling the rugby world with his evasive running skills and a box of tricks that has left the best defences grasping thin air, disproving the notion that size matters in modern professional rugby. He's been called the little wizard, the artful dodger and a whole host of other superlatives, but wherever Williams has played, the crowd have been on the edge of their seats.
When he entered his 20s, Williams looked set for a life of relative obscurity playing scrum half for his local side, Amman United, and scratching around in a variety of day jobs. All that was to change, however, when he was plucked from nowhere by then Neath coach Lyn Jones, and his rise to become Wales's most dangerous strike runner was meteoric. Following his international debut aged 21, Williams lit up Wales's 2003 World Cup campaign, and went on to become an integral part of the Grand Slam-winning Wales side of 2005, a year in which he also toured with the British Lions to New Zealand. In 2008, when Wales took the Grand Slam once more, he made an invaluable contribution to the side's glorious victory.
In Shane, Williams reveals the inside story of his incredible rugby career so far, the personal trials that have come with success and how he has managed to defy the odds to become a living Welsh rugby legend.

Once i picked the book up, i read it for literally hours on end. It really is a fantastic book. I would highly suggest if you're a rugby fan like me.....except yours will not be as good as mine because mine is signed by the man himself: P
Shane Williams is clearly a seminal part of Welsh rugby history and whilst his career is too recent to carry the romance of the 1970's legends, he has had an interesting career and I enjoyed reading his story. He writes about all stages of his career and how he progressed through to the highlights of the 2005 and 2008 Grand Slam via Neath and the Ospreys.
This is a good book for anyone who is a fan of Welsh rugby or has enjoyed watching Shane play over the years, like me.
It is about how he develops his rugby game and how he started off as a young gentleman and played for an average club team and then in 2008 became the very best rugby player of the year.
He was talking about winning and losing - if you win great but if you lose even better as you have to come back to training and work harder and listen more and concentrate even more. He says it's important that if someone drops their head you give them the encouragement that they need to get their heads up again.The biggest thing of all that he says is to never give up. If you give up it all goes pear shaped.
I really enjoyed this book and I think that I have learnt alot from it.
