'lucid, detailed and frank'
'Never less than compelling'
'By no means just for rugby heads'
'Conveyed with the right balance of truth and delicacy: there is nothing prurient, yet the emotional passages are extremely moving, which is not something you can say about many rugby books'
'Dallaglio, as befits his hardman persona, takes no prisoners'
'Uncontrollably frank...a terrific book'
'The story of a true English sporting hero, albeit a flawed one for whom tragedy as well as disgrace has been a companion. Pretty much everything is confronted head on, exactly as Dallaglio played, indeed plays'
'One of the best autobiographies of the year... beautifully written'
'An engaging tale'
