Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

Richie McCaw is the New Zealand All Blacks’ most capped player of all time. During the 2011 World Cup he reached 100 caps and has played over 60 Tests as Captain. When the All Blacks beat France in Final, he crowned a ten year career that started with a man-of-the-match performance against Ireland in 2001. Unquestionably the greatest player of his generation, he is arguably the most talented rugby player of all time. In his autobiography, McCaw recounts for the first time, with brutal honesty, the roots of his family life that defined his character – learning to play the game on the family farm in South New Zealand and being inspired to fly gliders by his war-hero grandfather – and how it gave him the strength to emerge from the lowest moment in his career to become the most successful Captain world rugby has ever seen. Unafraid of playing the game right at the edge and putting his body on the line for his team mates, McCaw has set the standard of what a professional rugby player should be. Hugely popular and respected, his sheer presence means that he is a natural leader of men both on and off the pitch and his story is not just a brutal account of life on the front line, but an exhilarating portrait of modern rugby.

Biographie de l'auteur

Since RICHIE McCAW's debut in 2001 the All Blacks have won seven Tri Nations titles, completed three successful Grand Slam tours and won the Bledisloe Cup eight times as well as the 2011 Rugby World Cup. He is the All Blacks most capped player of all time and has been named the International Rugby Board (IRB) Player of the Year a record three times.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Book From A Great All Black 22 juin 2013
Par Ruby Reads - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Richie McCaw, New Zealand's All Blacks rugby captain was described by Heyneke Meyer, the coach of South Africa, one of the All Black's greatest rivals, as "probably the best player who ever played rugby" In most pictures, McCaw's gaze is cheerful but the cover of his autobiography shows the intensity and the hardness he brings to the game.

In The Real McCaw, The Autobiography, the first chapter tells of his foundation and the beginning of Richie McCaw's determination to be a great all black. Goal setting and visualization became a major part of his life. He figured out the preparation he needed to succeed and followed through. His preparation, even today, includes writing instructions to himself in a notebook. They begin with the words "Start again" and end with the letters G.A.B. a reminder that, ever since he was a boy, he aspired to be a Great All Black.

McCaw was in charge of a side that hadn't been beaten for 15 months. In that time he also ended the losses of one World Cup after another for New Zealand when, in October 2011, he captained the All Blacks to victory.

The fact that he played the last three matches with broken bones in his foot provided Paul Ackford (Sunday Telegraph) with the back cover blurb "Better on one leg during the World Cup than most players on two."

The chapters leading up to, and including, the World Cup gave an inside look at a brutal contact sport and the mind of the rugby captain leading the All Blacks.
Subsequent chapters touch on his love of gliding, flying in general, the love for his family and the heartache after the earthquake in Christchurch, his home.

If you're looking for an expose'of his love life you won't get it in this book. This is not a tell all book on the people he knows or the women he's dated. It is a book about a humble man at the top of his sport who has achieved all of his rugby goals. Also, it's about a man who believes in the morality of following rules. He is a G.A.B 24-7. I would recommend this book to anyone, not just to rugby fans.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 It's a trip inside Richie's head during those well known games as well as his loves like flying and family 11 février 2016

Even more worth a read now that the legend has retired. It's a trip inside Richie's head during those well known games as well as his loves like flying and family. A really interesting read about the making of a great man, and I took from it some fantastic methods for success. Really a motivational book and a perfect gift for the rugby fan in the family, kiwi or not.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Honest and inspiring 17 février 2013

This is a great book. It's exciting, honest and sensitive. I really enjoyed reading about all the rugby matches or interviews I'd watched on tv and reading things from a different point of view, say from perhaps the Australian media. I remember watching the All Blacks quarter final against France in 2007 and being shocked and devastated for them but this really illuminates all the plays and thoughts of every minute of the game, which I found really fascinating.

This is obviously for rugby enthusiasts but I really enjoyed it as an autobiographical tale too.Such a passion for life, his family, flying and rugby make Richie not just a G.A.B but seemingly also an incredibly decent and lovely human being. New Zealand are lucky to have him on their team. A great uplifting, inspiring read!

Kind of a typical autobiography but after getting to attend the recent Rugby World Cup in the UK and getting to see New Zealand play--not in the finals unfortunately--I was interested in learning more about this man that the New Zealand fans were raving about. Pretty interesting guy on and off the field. Good read for anyone and especially us old former club rugby players.

A superb story beautifully told. Richie McCaw and the All Blacks since 2011 went on to retain the rugby World Cup in England in 2015. There will me many books and hopefully films made about this truly spectacular achievement. McCaw from a small town in New Zealand is very much a super hero. What a great contribution he has made to New Zealand and the All Blacks brand.
