  • Munster's recent story is compelling and O'Gara has been a central figure. With the assistance of Denis Walsh, this is a sweetly struck penalty of a book: revealing and hard-nosed

    Robert Kitson, Guardian
  • Perhaps the finest sports book of the year and among the best Irish sports biographies ever written... a deeply rewarding portrait of a great sportsman

    Michael Foley, Sunday Times (Ireland)
  • O'Gara is fascinating on both the mental and physical mechanics of the rugby kick... His candour means that he does not avoid discussing the darker aspects of his personal life

    Leo McKinstry, Sunday Telegraph
  • Candour is a defining characteristic of O'Gara's and pervades his autobiography... a compelling read

    Hugh Farrelly, Irish Independent
  • Basically it's the book O'Gara hoped it would be and that's the genius of it. Nothing is off limits, his world is laid bare and people are left to make up their own minds about the subject... He is brutally honest in his observations, is very hard and unforgiving on himself and tells it like it is. It is a hallmark of the man... It's all O'Gara

    Conor George, Evening Echo
