Customer Review

on January 6, 2011
Austin Healey is Marmite - most people love or hate him. As someone who quite liked him before reading his book I'm not sure what I think now - he's clearly massively conceited, but pretty self-aware, and knows that he rubs people up the wrong way all the time, but does it anyway - take him as you find him sort. The book is good and better than most rugby autobiogs I've read (which is quite a few) since it isn't just 'games that I've played in' as a long list, it's got lots of background and interesting opinion and back-stories to the biog throughout. More than anything though, it is stunningly honest and pulls no punches about what Healey thinks about anything, including himself. It also contains some interesting stuff about how difficult it is to maintain motivation and focus as a professional sportsperson. Overall well worth the read - the only rugby autobiog I've ever stayed up reading later than I meant to!
