Format: Hardcover
A remarkable insight into the life of a rugby league superstar and an extremely respected figure but also a geniune nice guy!

This book is inspirational and would suit anyone who reads it not just Wigan fans. It gives descriptions of Kris's career but also into his life and the ups and downs sport brings. The truth is told over many changes at the club over the years and the great players that Kris has played with and against. It is not all rugby league though he talks about his roots, his future and his extremely supportive family.

I'm sure that every rugby league fan who has seen Kris play over the years will love this book and any young rugby league players aiming for the top should read.

This is one book that is genuinely written from the heart and is a credit to Kris! I would recommend this book to anyone as I could not put it down once I started.

Kris Radlinski has written a candid and honest autobiography which is a fantastic read. Many sportmens tend to give a sanitised version of their career and you get the feeling they are missing out some of the best, and more controversial, bits. But Radlinski pulls no punches and reveals what he really thought about the other characters he played with. He was undoubtedly one of the best players of his generation and gives an insight into what it was like to compete at the highest level which will appeal to more than just rugby fans.

Simply Rad: The Kris Radlinski Story

As a long time follower of rugby league, and an admirer of the player I was hoping that this book delivered more than just the normal anecdotes seen so common in autobiographies these days. Thankfully it did.

The book reads more like a story, showing the ups and downs of sport, as well as stirring up memories of the great Wigan team of the 90's. The book is not without its `typical' rugby player stories, all of which had me in stitches.

The player has been very honest with his story and can add another achievement to his CV. The book is a compelling read and one which I would recommend people buy, whoever they support.

Not just for Wigan fans, not even just for RL fans, this book is a superbly written account of the career and psychology of a top sportsman.

Lots of accounts of his career, and in-depth analysis not only of where the club went wrong, but how to go about putting it right. Honest analysis of the various coaches he's played under, and of some of the stars he's played with and against.

Of the thousands of books, both fiction and non-fiction, that I've read, it's not often a new one makes it into my "top ten", but this one has.

I class myself an avid reader, but not a lover of autobiographies. This book however blew me away-I couldn't put it down and read it in record time! For a first time writer, he just made the words flow-and so compelling! A thoroughly good read to be recommended to ALL lovers of sport in general. This book will hopefully generate a few more fans for the excellent game of Rugby League! Keep writing Kris!!

Very well written book, funny,sad, heart-warming.Very truthful about his playing career at Wigan, and how, he came to terms with his retirement from the game through injury. His search for his grandfathers grave in Poland and how his close family upbringing helped to make him the player and the man he became.

What a good book this is - I couldn't put it down. Excellent read if you're a Wigan fan, just as good if you're not. Tells the story of his rugby career, the people he's worked with and his visit to his grandfether's grave in Poland - brought a lump to the throat.

This book is a real insight into the life of a world class rugby league player. The sections discussing his upbringing and family history are from the heart and a credit to him. It's a crying shame he had to retire before his time due to injury. Great book
