Publisher's Summary

The All Blacks are the world's most successful sporting outfit, undefeated in over 75% of their international matches over the last 100 years. What is the secret of their success? And what can we - as individuals, companies and teams - learn from them? The All Blacks are the world's most successful sporting outfit, undefeated in over 75% of their international matches over the last 100 years.

In other arenas, there have been commanding sides that swept all before them, like the West Indies cricket team of the 1980s with their fearsome battery of fast bowlers, or the Hungarian football team who introduced a sophisticated new passing game and famously thrashed England 7-1 in Budapest in 1954. But what makes the All-Blacks different is their supremacy for decade after decade - their sheer consistency, longevity and sustained dominance.

So, what is the secret of their success? And what can we - as individuals, companies and teams - learn from them? Whatever field we are in, how can we play like All Blacks? In Legacy, best-selling author James Kerr is embedded deep into the heart of the All Blacks' set-up to reveal 15 powerful and pragmatic lessons in leadership. Revealing proven secrets of sustained success, Legacy is a unique, inspiring handbook for leaders in all fields, and asks: How do you turn vision into action? How do you achieve world-class standards, day after day, week after week, year after year? How do you handle pressure, expectation and setbacks? How do you train to win at the highest level? What is your purpose?What will be your legacy?

    "narrator."

    good book but narrator could have been a kiwi who could pronounce maori. someone like an all black or even an actor. Temuera or taika comes to mind

    "Brilliant"

    This book is filled with amazing principles which can be used in every aspect of life, business and relationships. I coach schoolboy rugby and found it has helped me enormously, and as a result is has helped the players. I'd recommend this book to anyone.

    This is an epic book.

    The text so profound it has made an impact and motivates me to assess my values and sacrifices.

    It's about all aspects of life and not just for rugby or business enthusiasts.

    "Opt for the written version if practical"

    Performance was pretty good, he has tons of voices. But this is kind of a checklist book. I would have been better off getting the written version. It is nice he provides a pretty good ten minute summary in the final chapter, so I can easily just go back to that.

    "the most trite "lessons""
    What disappointed you about Legacy?

    A grabbag of all of the commonly used and well known clichรฉs about sports performance. Many are culled from NFL American football and have nothing to do with rugby or the All blacks. I think the author just wanted to market his book to a NZ audience.


    Has Legacy turned you off from other books in this genre?

    yes


    Would you be willing to try another one of Saul Reichlinโ€™s performances?

    no, the reader is annoying


    Any additional comments?

    One of the worst audiobooks I have gotten from audible.<br/>I have no idea why there are so many positive reviews.

    "Legacy - 15 Lessons in Leadership"

    The booked is billed as "15 Lessons in Leadership". Its supports the concept of leadership down to the lowest level and to the individual as personal accountability; all are leaders and no real followers. This is concept in many generations. However, the reality of the narrative is more robust that just a leadership style. it is the idea of creating a work culture that encourages leaders to create leaders. Rather than rely on the personality of one strong person who will died or leave, it is the idea of creating a distinct institution that replicates itself through inculcation of its new, current, and past members on basic principles larger than money and winning. Every industry and walk of life as such organizations: The US Marines, US Military Academy, Apple, Green Bay Packers, FBI, etc. There are thousands if not millions of places to work, volunteer, or participate in. But, the best ones have created a culture of principles that mean more than the basic mission of the organization. People join the Marines not for the pay but to be Marines. People do not become clerics or work for non-profits for the pay but to serve. Many people go to college but do not go back for their college reunions like they do for the US Military academies. Thus, this book explores what makes the organizations great. In some ways, it is a replacement for the culture of a tribe or a religion that has disappear as societies move from spirituality and / or from the tribal / communal system to the impersonal life in the cities.

    "Interesting book but......."
    What was one of the most memorable moments of Legacy?

    The concept of the book is great and there are clearly some useful thought provoking elements to the book. Enjoyable to listen to


    Which character โ€“ as performed by Saul Reichlin โ€“ was your favourite?

    The various attempts to imitate accents were irritating and the New Zealand accent was not great, more grating. Easy enough performer to listen to but it didn't need the poor accent interpretations at all


    Any additional comments?

    The factual errors in the book in the end were annoying. Everyone but the author knows the 2011 World Cup final score was 8 - 7 not 9 - 8. The All Blacks lost to France in the 1999 World Cup, not the 1997. Bryan Williams first played for the All Blacks in 1970 not 1976. The problem with these types of factual errors is that it is difficult to believe that everything else represented as fact attributed to other people may or may not be completely accurate

    "Lessons in life"

    Leadership books are plentiful, and generally speaking they say similar things. However I feel that the key is finding one that speaks in terms you can relate to. While I'm not a world class All Blacks rugby player I'm a fan of rugby and this was a book that spoke to me on a level and with example I could relate to. This was the book for me.

    "A highly addictive read."

    The All Blacks are an awesome team, institution and legacy. This is a story about one of the greatest legacies in sport. It blends a historical, anthropological and business-orientated study of the New Zealand Rugby Union team in a succinct, energetic and compelling fashion. A must read for rugby fans, learning and development enthusiasts and leaders.

    "Good mix of rugby anecdotes and leadership advice."

    I listened to this as the book was recommended in a 'top reads' article for management and leadership advice. Being a rugby fan, it seemed like a great blend of content and advice.

    The content is generally really good. The All-Black ethos and underlying Maori influence is sustained throughout and used as a launching point for wider leadership points. The book tries to maintain both perspectives and does so well, though some of the links seem a touch tenuous at points, the connections a little spurious. There are some great pieces of advice though.

    The reading is very good, with intonation and characterisation. It perhaps lacks a little passion in places, but I was really entertained by the reading.

    "The narration sounds like it's a 70's safety video"
    What would have made Legacy better?

    A different narrator who sounds engaged in the story and not so worried about pronunciation.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Could not get past the narration to properly appreciate the book.


    Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Saul Reichlin?

    The Rock - no, I'm joking. I don't know. I think I'd rather it was someone involved in New Zealand rugby who has a passion for the sport and a more natural voice.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Sleep.


    Any additional comments?

    Terrible narration, could not engage with story and kept wanting to fall asleep.

    "Totally inspiring"

    We're one week away from the 3rd and final match between the All Blacks and the British and Irish Lions. It's one win apiece. I desperately want to see the Phone win but playing a team of such belief and determination as the All Blacks will be the hardest test imaginable in rugby. And this book brilliantly explains why. Kerr had brought dull leadership text to live by linking leadership with the central, long lasting belief structures of the All Blacks.

    The book resonates with the almost spiritual quest to be the best. I've never come across a book that inspires like this.
