This is a well written, enjoyable story of a remarkable man and a life t hat has been lived to the fullest. An ordinary bloke, Graham Henry as given all to succeed and encouraged others to realise their dreams. This is an intimate look at an inspiring man who tries his best and demands it of others.
It was really interesting to get a glimpse of the mentality of professional sportspeople and the best and worst aspects of games of rugby. He doesn’t make excuses for losses, instead explaining why he thought they happened. Not a rugby fan, I skimmed the rugby talk but enough stayed with me to prove interesting. I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed this book. Bob Howitt did a good job as co-writer and there were little snippets of dry humour throughout.
