RICHIE MCCAW BOOK PDF

Dec 10, Joe Beer rated it really liked it This is an example of one of the best biographies of a sportsman. It gives good insight into how preparation for a game takes place as well as what happens in games. Richie is frank and criticizes umpires often for mistakes, but surprisingly e mistakes are always against NZ NAND never in favour of them. The Warwick book and his visualisations were very interesting too. Two things would have made a huge difference to this book.

Me, not so much. I think this would be a fantastic book for a young player. There seemed to be a lot of detail about goal setting, having a plan and getting the right head-space. I also liked the way the story was structured, with the narrative being based around the journey between the 2 world cups. It gave the book a really strong shape, and I guess this is the difference between having a sports journalist and a successful novelist as the ghost writer.

Having said that, I also felt the voice sounded authentic. Oct 21, North Harbour rated it liked it This book spends most of its time trying to give readers an insight into what it takes to prepare for test match rugby, which on the face of it seems like a reasonable thing for a rugby biography to do.

McCaw decided to stay away from his personal life, which is fair enough, but the passages about his love of gliding were kind awful to be honest. To me the book was at its best when it gave blow by blow This book spends most of its time trying to give readers an insight into what it takes to prepare for test match rugby, which on the face of it seems like a reasonable thing for a rugby biography to do.

Richie McCaw is a once in a generation player and his observations of a game as it develops are genuinely interesting and I would have liked to see more of them in the book. I purchased this book thinking I would get an insight into this great sportsmans life, but he is, from all appearances, a very private man. His Private life is just that, His private life.

The book is not well written and I had already told Whitcoulls staff, if I miss out on getting it signed, I was going to ask for a refund, after all I had finished it, and without his signature in it, it was worth nothing to me.

For this alone it was worth using my lunch hour to stand in a long, long queue.

This led Josh Kronfeld , a former All Black openside flanker , to criticise the selection: "You might as well just give All Black jerseys to everybody. The fact they picked guys off one NPC season is bloody incredible". His first touch of the game resulted in a knock-on when he was hit in a tackle and New Zealand were trailing the Irish 16—7 at half-time.
