This book astonishing in parts, but even if you were a rugby follower in the bad old days of the 1990s you will come away knowing the story in a way that you never knew it before.' - "Sunday Times". 'This is the best rugby book I've ever read. Really outstanding.' - George Hook. '"From There to Here" provides a wonderful sketch of the trials and tribulations of the last 10 or so years in Irish rugby. Fanning's book gets underneath each story in fantastic detail and provides a fresh perspective on a number of key incidents over the past decade in the Irish game. A superb read, one that will leave you hoping that the author produces another volume in 2015 looking back on the previous 10 years.' - "Sunday Tribune". 'This is essential reading for any Irish rugby nut, or aspiring one, as the reporter revisits several issues that plagued the IRFU's lethargic transition from the amateur to professional era.' - "The Irish Times".'For rugby lovers this is a must have.' - "Irish Farmers Monthly". 'Because the glorious now of Irish rugby has drawn a curtain between us and the half-remembered, chaotic, hapless past, a book such as Brendan Fanning's excellent "From There to Here" is timely and valuable ...The guiding purpose of Fanning's book is to open that curtain; its triumph is to paint such a vivid and illuminating picture.' - "The Sunday Times". 'Brendan Fanning ...paints an absorbing picture of the trials and tribulations of the Irish game as it has stumbled, often awkwardly and at times painfully, out of rugby's backwater into a lofty place in the IRB's top five world rankings ...' - "The Belfast Telegraph".
