Description

Winner of the Daily Telegraph Rugby Book of the Year 2020
The Sunday Times bestselling rugby book of the year 2020

Brilliant, honest, combative – Eddie Jones is a true legend of world rugby and remains an enigmatic figure in the game. In My Life and Rugby he tells his story for the first time, including the full inside account of England’s 2019 World Cup campaign.

He describes his experience growing up in a tough working-class area of Sydney, where he first played rugby, and how he learnt from the extreme highs and lows of his own playing career – the numerous successes but also the painful disappointment of never playing for Australia.

He tells how he then embarked on a coaching career that has seen him become one of the most experienced and decorated coaches in Rugby Union, spanning four World Cups and three finals. His successes have included masterminding England’s spectacular victory over New Zealand in the 2019 World Cup and engineering the sport’s most stunning upset when Japan beat South Africa in 2015.

My Life and Rugby is the story of one of the most compelling and singular figures in rugby. Told with unflinching honesty, this is the ultimate book for all fans of the sport.

Written with Donald McRae, twice winner of the William Hill Sports Book of the Year award and three-time Sports Feature Writer of the Year, My Life and Rugby is the story of one of the most compelling and singular figures in rugby. Told with unflinching honesty, this is the ultimate rugby book for all fans of the sport.

Publisher Review

Jones has a winning mentality - he is constantly asking for more -- Gareth Southgate A genuine super-coach -- Stephen Jones, The Sunday Times An absolute genius * Sydney Morning Herald * A world-class coach -- Sir Clive Woodward Refreshingly self-critical . . . Jones emerges as a more complex character than he had led us to believe. The sections on the racism he suffered as a mixed race child and his dejection at missing out an international cap as a player are particularly moving. * The Times Books of the Year * Eternally thoughtful about his craft and sport . . . fascinating. There's much more than rugby here . . . Jones is brutally frank about himself and the people and players in his life. His gifts of leadership and organisation are clearly remarkable: this is a man you would follow into the jungle. * Daily Mail Books of the Year *
