Matt Hampson’s life changed forever when a freak scrummaging accident left him paralysed after dislocating his neck while training with England. A promising career in the professional game was cruelly cut short and Hampson’s life was in the balance on a number of occasions. This book, written with award-winning journalist and author Paul Kimmage, tells the story of the accident and the aftermath. Hampson’s moments of despair and then his determination to make something of his life make this a truly inspirational sports memoir. The book has another layer including the stories of people Hampson met in hospital who had also had life-changing injuries. Probably the best rugby book I have read.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'A hellish, inspiring and often hilarious account' * Daily Telegraph *
'Engage's honest and unblinking approach to the scale of his disaster makes this book much bleaker [and better] than just an uplifting triumph-over-adversity tale' * Sunday Times *
'This is a big call to make but no amount of head scratching contemplation has prompted recall of a finer rugby book than this ... the quality and the ingenuity of the narrative takes your breath away' * Rugby World *
'A genuine must read' * Sport magazine *
