Good not great
on 6 October 2013
Its a good book. Mostly because of the insight into Johnny Sextons contract negotiations with the IRFU. Its a pity he didint write a complete review of his career so far. The Heineken Cup final against Northampton would have been great to read about.
Peter O Reilly, the journalist who ghost wrote this hasn't done a great job to be honest. It reads poorly enough, as if Sexton just dictated the entire book to him. If it was a bit more polished and went into more detail about his career it would have been better. Only one chapter about the Lions tour too. Thought there would have been more.
Still a good read though. Any Irish rugby fan should enjoy it. Paints the IRFU in a poor light, which I do believe. Probably have another book out after his time in France, which I would buy too, hopefully ghost written by someone else though.
