The autobiography of England's World Cup-winning captain, one of the nation's true sporting icons

Martin Johnson Autobiography Summary

Martin Johnson Autobiography by Martin Johnson

Martin Johnson is the towering second row forward who has come to set the standards of what a professional rugby player should do. His drive and physical presence mean that he is a natural leader on the pitch - and off it, too. In this, his long-awaited autobiography, he looks at the changing world of rugby. He explains why he led the England team to the brink of a strike in the autumn of 2000, and provides the definitive account of England's 2003 World Cup triumph, as well as Lions tours and all the goings-on that make rugby such a special sport. Hugely popular and respected, Martin Johnson has written vivid autobiography and a remarkable portrait of modern rugby.

Martin Johnson Autobiography Reviews

Firm, clear and fascinating... There is no morbid sentimentality...about these passages, and their directness is reflected throughout the book with no concessions to the squeamish... His rugby life [is] quite a journey, but...millions will feel compelled to make the trip. * Brough Scott, Sunday Telegraph *
Very droll, dry, self-deprecating humour; Johnno is a very funny man...this is so crisp, tough. I think it's a good buy for Christmas. * Germaine Greer *
