Synopsis

Brilliant, honest, combative – Eddie Jones is a gigantic figure in world rugby and a true legend of the game. My Life in Rugby is his explosive autobiography.

Eddie Jones has masterminded a revival in English rugby after the shocking early exit at the home World Cup in 2015. Since taking over he has won the Six Nations Championship back to back, including England’s first grand slam in a generation, their first ever whitewash of Australia, as well as taking them on their longest ever winning streak.

Always a forthright and honest voice, Eddie tells the story of England’s remarkable turnaround and also the challenges of managing the biggest rugby nation in the world. My Life and Rugby draws on his coaching experience of Australia, when he lost in the final to Clive Woodward’s 2003 World Cup-winning team, and coaching Japan to the greatest upset in Rugby World Cup history when they beat South Africa. Eddie also shares leadership lessons that are equally applicable off the pitch, as well as how he has managed success and learnt from failure to now be rated one of the top sports coaches in the world.

The story of a rugby legend, told with unflinching honesty, My Life in Rugby is the ultimate rugby book for all fans of the sport.

A world-class coach

Sir Clive Woodward

Jones has a winning mentality - he is constantly asking for more. England were 18 games unbeaten and I saw his quote saying we are nowhere near ready to win a World Cup. He recognised what the end looks like and what that environment needs to look like.
