Best book ever
Beautifully written, with deep insights and expansive anecdotes, this book is simply wonderful. It’s a fan’s experience, but it’s also a manual on how this team did so well. Congratulations Konrad Marshall and all involved in the 2017 Richmond premiership. You’ve brought a lot of joy to me and I’m sure many others.
To Konrad and Geoff Slattery just a masterful display. Couldn’t put it down not just because I am a Richmond Supporter but because of the rare access gained to learn the inner workings and emotion that is an Australian Sports club at the elite level.
One of the best sports books to come out of this country for a long long time
