In these pages hurling is defined by modern heroes, former players, managers and coaches. The result is an analysis of the fundamental skills and qualities needed, the first attempt to demystify the art of hurling. Dónal Óg Cusack, Pat Hartigan, Seán Mc Mahon, Ray Cummins, Nicky English, Liam Griffin, Henry Shefflin and many others, discuss the finer points and skills that make the perfect player. They recall great performances , great exponents, tricks and tactics, and openly offer advice.

The result is a must-read for hurling fans, a handbook for coaches, and insights for those who want to understand this game renowned for the sportsmanship and kinship of those who play it.
