When Peter Stringer played youth rugby, he was so small that people told his parents he shouldn't be allowed on the pitch. Fortunately for Munster and for Ireland, they paid no attention. Over 200 provincial caps and 98 international caps later, Stringer is a legend. Since making his Munster debut in 1998, his lightning-quick passing, sniping breaks and brave defending have electrified fans - never more so than when he deceived the entire Biarritz team at a scrum to sneak in for the try that brought Munster its first Heineken Cup in 2006. In Ireland's breakthrough season of 2009, his man-of-the-match performance at Murrayfield helped overturn a late deficit en route to the Six Nations Grand Slam. Now, for the first time, Peter Stringer tells his own story - a story of overcoming the odds, and a story every Irish rugby fan will want to read.

MEDIA REVIEWS
What gives the publication its grit is the scrum-half's no-holds-barred descriptions of fallings-out with various coaches ... All revelatory stuff -- Liam Heagney * Irish Daily Mail *
The picture of Peter Stringer that emerges from this book is one of a man who has done absolutely everything humanly possible to make himself the best rugby player and athlete he can possibly be. ... His account of how he stood firm against his parents when they suggested he undergo growth hormone treatment as a young boy just starting secondary school in 'Pres' is perhaps the most striking example of a discipline and stubbornness that has seen him stand out and achieve so much. * Irish Examiner *
