Summary
"Paul Gallen's career in rugby league is extraordinary. For his club, his state and his country he's given everything he's got, and then some. He's captained his club, The Cronulla Sharks, to their first every premiership, he's led the NSW Blues to a drought-breaking series win in 2014, and he's played more than 30 tests for his country. In every game Gallen has left nothing in tank, giving his heart and soul for his team and his teammates. Yet his career has also known controversy, with Gallen's take-no-prisoners style polarising both media and fans, and his captaincy of the Sharks making him both a figurehead and a target in the club's darkest days during the long-running ASADA investigation into peptide use. Gallen's autobiography is a frank, open and heartfelt account of the great highs and lows of his 18 years playing rugby league's highest level. It's a story as powerful, confronting and fascinating as the man himself." -- Back cover
