Waterstones Says

The inspirational memoir of one of Rugby League’s true greats, Too Many Reasons to Live documents Rob Burrow’s battle with motor neurone disease and the incredible courage and resilience he has shown to keep fighting to the very end.

Shortlisted for the William Hill Sports Book of the Year 2021

I'm not giving in until my last breath. - Rob Burrow

Rugby League legend Rob Burrow's memoir will be one of the most inspirational books you'll ever read. It will move you to tears and make you laugh. It will make you angry at the unfairness and cruelty of life. It will make you marvel at the fortitude and limits of the human spirit. And, like all the best books, perhaps it will make you reassess your own approach to living.

Since the age of seven Rob Burrow, the beating heart of the legendary Leeds Rhino Rugby Leeds team has been proving people wrong. Told that he was too small to play Rugby League he went on, against all logic, to have one of the most decorated careers in English Rugby League's modern history. And then, at 37, he was diagnosed with motor neurone disease. This is the story of a man who is channelling all that determination and positivity into his biggest battle yet.

Too Many Reasons to Live isn't just a rugby league book, or just a book for sports fans. It's an extraordinary story of love, friendship, of infinite kindness and boundless courage. As Rob takes on his new battle, he is doing what he has done his entire life - proving people wrong. Rugby League, winning friendship, at its heart Too Many Reasons to Live is a book for anyone either fighting their own battles with illness or other kinds of adversity, and a reminder that no one is going through it alone.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Occasionally in life you come across a person who is talented yet humble, brave but not foolish, iconic and unaware of his own impact. Rob Burrow is such a man – a pocket rocket of a player and a giant of a character. It has been a privilege to watch him play and to know him off the pitch. He is one in a million and his story is truly inspirational - Clare Balding

Rob might say that I inspired him, but he inspired me. He's just phenomenal. - Doddie Weir

I've always loved watching rugby league and was a fan of Rob from the first time I watched him play. He was one of those players who stood out and had this aura about him. Although he was the smallest on the field, he epitomised what the sport was all about, being fast, strong, skillful and entertaining. After watching him throughout his career I was devastated to hear the news of his MND diagnosis. But one thing is for sure, Rob is a mentally tough individual who won't give up without a fight. A loving family man, an incredible athlete and a great role model for anybody out there. Legend. - Wayne Rooney

Rob is a true warrior and hero to many but also a genuine and kind man who’d do anything for anybody. I’ve known him a long time, from idolising him when I was a boy to meeting him and later being able to call him a friend. It will be the honour of my life to read Rob’s words and to voice his extraordinary story. - Matthew Lewis, actor
