Publisher's Summary

Keith Earls started out in senior rugby as a teenage star and during the course of his long career has become one of the most admired and respected players of his generation. 

A British & Irish Lion at the age of 21, he is now closing in on his 34th birthday and still playing at the top of his game. A native of Limerick city, Earls grew up in one of its most socially disadvantaged housing estates. His natural sporting talent brought him into the privileged bastion of elite rugby union. His frank and fearless autobiography tells the story of his long struggle to reconcile the world whence he came with the world opened up by his brilliance with an oval ball. 

Earls has maintained a low profile throughout his career. For the first time he will talk in depth and at length about the inner turmoil that went unseen by team-mates, friends and fans. It is a confessional, intimate and courageous story of the pain that was a constant companion to the glory.

A book worth giving the chance..

Great read for anyone not just rugby or sports fans. Will look at this Great sportsman in a different light now,a deeper light. I admire Earl's as a sportsman. Now as a human being too,which is not always the case in the times we are living in.

revealing

I thought I was gonna struggle with the narration when the narrator put on a Ronan O Gara accent but thankfully it didn't last long. Very honest book by Earls, brilliant honestly detailing his mental health. I just wish he went into more detail about the rugby battles he had or witnessed. surely some teammates had right good blowouts. Overall I liked this book, an easy listen and like he wanted would be an easy read. Fair play to the man hopefully Munster win the EC again and he gets his 100th cap

Great insight

Great insight into Keith's background being from Moyross, his mental health struggles which he succeeds in conquering. Good look inside Keith's career for IRELAND and Munster. The chapter on defending was one of the best explanations of this aspect of rugby. Well done.
