The revelatory autobiography of a rugby colossus: Paul O'Connell.

There has never been a rugby player quite like Paul O'Connell. His name is synonymous with passion, heart and determination. But he is also the thinking man's rugby player, a legendary student of the game. As the heartbeat of Munster, British and Irish Lions captain in 2009, and captain of the first Ireland team to retain the Six Nations championship, O'Connell became the most beloved and respected of the golden generation of Irish rugby players - and was widely regarded as one of the very best players in the world.

There was nothing inevitable - or even likely - about any of this, and in an autobiography as intense and thoughtful as its author, O'Connell explores the forces and struggles that turned him into the player and leader that he became. The Battle is a book for everyone who wants to understand the roots of achievement and the inner world of an elite sportsman. It will take its place alongside the very finest sports books of recent years.

Author Biography: Paul O'Connell was born in Limerick in 1979. He was selected for three British and Irish Lions tours, including as captain in 2009. He won three Six Nations championships with Ireland, including two as captain, in 2014 and 2015. He won two Heineken Cups with Munster.
