Publisher's Summary

Brilliant, honest, combative - Eddie Jones is a gigantic figure in world rugby and a true legend of the game. My Life in Rugby is his explosive autobiography. 

Eddie Jones has masterminded a revival in English rugby after the shocking early exit at the home World Cup in 2015. Since taking over he has won the Six Nations Championship back to back, including England’s first grand slam in a generation, their first ever whitewash of Australia, as well as taking them on their longest ever winning streak.

Always a forthright and honest voice, Eddie tells the story of England’s remarkable turnaround and also the challenges of managing the biggest rugby nation in the world. My Life and Rugby draws on his coaching experience of Australia, when he lost in the final to Clive Woodward’s 2003 World Cup-winning team, and coaching Japan to the greatest upset in Rugby World Cup history when they beat South Africa. 

Eddie also shares leadership lessons that are equally applicable off the pitch, as well as how he has managed success and learnt from failure to now be rated one of the top sports coaches in the world.

The story of a rugby legend, told with unflinching honesty, My Life in Rugby is the ultimate rugby book for all fans of the sport.

Bravo Beaver

Great listen and more than a Rugby Book. Lessons on Leadership, adaptability, humility, accountability and mateship stand out for me and and the audio version compliments the hardcopy.

Insights into a great coach

Yes he’s mouthy at times, yes he winds people up big time, but he is a great coach whose accomplishments across age groups, eras, club and test level are indictments to what a great coach he is. The book gives terrific insights into how teams are put together, embedding principles of hard work and innovation, of dedication, of togetherness, of special moments, of a man in love with our sport, of commitment to learning and if the make. Up of the man. Great read.

Interesting. Bad Narration.

loved the story but very irritated that the narrator didn't take the trouble to find out how to pronounce the names of legendary international rugby players. almost ruined it.

Great book poorly read

Shame it’s been read by a narrator who can’t pronounce names correctly! A great book though.
