Waterstones Says

One of rugby’s greatest coaches takes us on a tour of his stunning achievements, from back-to-back six nations triumphs to pulling off the sport’s biggest upset. Candid and forthright, this is an uncompromising memoir from the man who steered England to the 2019 Rugby World Cup final.   

Brilliant, honest, combative - Eddie Jones is a gigantic yet enigmatic figure in world rugby and a true legend of the game. In My Life and Rugby he tells his story for the first time, including the full inside story of England's 2019 World Cup campaign.

Eddie Jones is one of the most experienced and decorated coaches in world rugby. His career has spanned four World Cups: from losing to England in the 100th minute in 2003, working with South Africa when they won in 2007, and causing the greatest upset in the history of the game in 2015 when he masterminded the Japanese defeat of South Africa.

Since taking over as head coach of England in 2015, Eddie Jones has orchestrated the complete revival of the national team. 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 in their own back yard, as well as taking them on their longest-ever winning streak, matching the world record held by the All Blacks.

In his explosive autobiography, Jones shows how his fiercely competitive attitude, his love of coaching and his philosophy of the game were formed while growing up in a tough working-class suburb of Sydney as a small half-Japanese kid, playing schoolboy rugby alongside the legendary Ella brothers.

Learning from the extreme highs and lows of his own playing career - including the numerous successes playing for Randwick and New South Wales but also the painful disappointment of never playing for Australia - he shows what it takes to be the best in the world and how everything he has learned about the game, both on and off the pitch, has gone into plotting England's route to the top of world rugby.

Written with Don McRae, twice winner of the William Hill Sports Book of the Year Award and three times Sports Feature Writer of the Year, My Life and Rugby is the story of one of the most compelling and singular figures in rugby. Told with unflinching honesty, this is the ultimate rugby book for all fans of the sport.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'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.' - Gareth Southgate
