Well worth a read or a great gift for any rugby fan
on 28 July 2014
Excellent, well worth a read if you are a rugby fan, I finished the booking hoping there would be a sequal!
If you are wanting just an insight into Richies personal life you will be a bit disappointed, he does obviously give a little bit of personal information about himself but rightly so manages to keep detailed information about his personal life outside of the All Blacks to just enough to give you an insight into who he is as a person contributing to him as Captain of the All Blacks. One thing I really like about Richie McCaw is his level headed ability to keep life in perspective and not let the fame of being Captain of the All Blacks interfere with who he is as a person off the field. The book does talk of Richies love for piloting glider planes, as someone who has a love of flying this side of the book was a bonus for me and inspired me to want to go in a glider one day,.
Being an All Blacks supporter my motivation behind the read was I interested to know what gives the All Blacks that extra something special many other teams have so far not even come close to matching. If this is your reason for reading the book you will not be disappointed by what Richie has to say about being, acting and playing as part of a team.
