Publisher's Summary

The All Blacks are the world's most successful sporting outfit, undefeated in over 75% of their international matches over the last 100 years. What is the secret of their success? And what can we - as individuals, companies and teams - learn from them? The All Blacks are the world's most successful sporting outfit, undefeated in over 75% of their international matches over the last 100 years.

In other arenas, there have been commanding sides that swept all before them, like the West Indies cricket team of the 1980s with their fearsome battery of fast bowlers, or the Hungarian football team who introduced a sophisticated new passing game and famously thrashed England 7-1 in Budapest in 1954. But what makes the All-Blacks different is their supremacy for decade after decade - their sheer consistency, longevity and sustained dominance.

So, what is the secret of their success? And what can we - as individuals, companies and teams - learn from them? Whatever field we are in, how can we play like All Blacks? In Legacy, best-selling author James Kerr is embedded deep into the heart of the All Blacks' set-up to reveal 15 powerful and pragmatic lessons in leadership. Revealing proven secrets of sustained success, Legacy is a unique, inspiring handbook for leaders in all fields, and asks: How do you turn vision into action? How do you achieve world-class standards, day after day, week after week, year after year? How do you handle pressure, expectation and setbacks? How do you train to win at the highest level? What is your purpose?What will be your legacy?

    My team has been going through some tough times and this book showed that it's so much more than the game of rugby. It's character of the team and the people. Hell of a read highly recommend.

    Great content. Shame the narrator was not Maori, or at least kiwi, as I feel the Maori introductions lacked the power they deserved. ;)

    "Interesting book but......."
    What was one of the most memorable moments of Legacy?

    The concept of the book is great and there are clearly some useful thought provoking elements to the book. Enjoyable to listen to


    Which character – as performed by Saul Reichlin – was your favourite?

    The various attempts to imitate accents were irritating and the New Zealand accent was not great, more grating. Easy enough performer to listen to but it didn't need the poor accent interpretations at all


    Any additional comments?

    The factual errors in the book in the end were annoying. Everyone but the author knows the 2011 World Cup final score was 8 - 7 not 9 - 8. The All Blacks lost to France in the 1999 World Cup, not the 1997. Bryan Williams first played for the All Blacks in 1970 not 1976. The problem with these types of factual errors is that it is difficult to believe that everything else represented as fact attributed to other people may or may not be completely accurate

    "The best book on leadership and vision"

    What and amazing book detailing the principles and strategies of the all Blacks as an organisation. You can see why they are world leaders on and off the pitch. A pleasure to listen to can't recommend it highly enough

    "Brilliant"

    Excellent book, and really inspiring. Surprised to hear about the damaging culture that was seen throughout the All Blacks, but was rectified by delving into the culture. Heritage is key to any organisation, as it's philosophy should he shaped by its traditions.

    A great listen.
    So many life lessons for individuals and business as well as further admiration for the All Blacks and understanding why they lead others - possibly English teams need to read/hear?!

    "Brilliant breakdown of All Blacks success"
    Where does Legacy rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best audio books I've ever listened too.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Legacy?

    Every chapter starts with a Maori proverb or metaphor that are one of the key tenets of All Blacks success. Then the author describes how the All Blacks instill this belief and create success


    Any additional comments?

    Applicable in business, our own personal lives as well as sport, the lessons in this book are truly inspirational. Highly recommended

    "Truly inspirational"

    The only negative to my experience of this audiobook was that I listened to it while driving and could not make notes of all the things I wanted to fix in my mind. Definitely will stand a second read in hard copy with a pen handy though I will still have Reichlin's voice reading it. Would recommend it to anyone with ambition in any area of their life.
