The bestselling autobiography of a league legend. Johnathan Thurston is widely regarded as rugby league's greatest player. This autobiography will follow Thurston's journey from a Brisbane kid who was written off as too skinny, too slow and too wild to play professionally, to his debut with the Canterbury Bulldogs in 2003, to State of Origin star, to Dally M and Clive Churchill Medal winner, and the fairytale premierships.
What an inspiration!
I am a huge rugby league fan and proud Queenslander so I was always going to get this book from one of Queensland’s greatest! However the book has taken on a bigger meaning in my life as I read it back to front to my baby daughter. She was born 11 weeks premature (29 weeks) so I’ve been reading the book to her as inspiration to show that greatness is not defined by the size of a person but for their deeds. My daughter is now 6 weeks old and growing steadily and her quality of life is improving day by day. Thanks for getting us through this challenging time JT!!
One of the most honest and entertaining reads
As a massive JT and Cowboys fan, this book was always a must on my reading list. As I read this book I felt as though JT himself was reading it to me. The language and writing style throughout was very honest and refreshing. Loved the book. Absolutely going to miss watching JT on the football field, but this book was a great wrap up to a stellar career. Another memorable achievement. Well done JT
I love me some rugby league, even if it’s from a QLD perspective. JT’s talent is unquestioned. It was great to read about rugby league from his perspective.
