Publisher's Summary

In July 2009 Jim Stynes, the acclaimed professional Australian-rules football player and administrator, was diagnosed with cancer and given less than a year to live. The diagnosis caught him by surprise. He was 42, healthy, and didn't have time for illness; he was director of the Reach Foundation, president of Melbourne Football Club, father of two primary school-aged kids, and the husband of Sam. Jim's ability to use mind over matter and never give in gave him two extra years on the prognosis.

This book is Jim's legacy. Unflinching in its detail, Jim here talks about what he found out about himself when things were at their worst - about what really counts when you're stacking it all up.

Awesome feeling when you listen to this book by Allison M

I have always been a passionate footy fan but this book is so much more than just footy - at the beginning this book was hard going for me as j lost my dad to cancer 18 years ago and although I felt I was able to get on with life - this book took me back to that time - listening about Jim and his amazing family was so inspiring and heartening just loved the way Jim loved life and particularly loved the last chapter by Sam -,would not hesitate to recommend this to anybody after a good read - absolutely delightful

Good book focuses on his amazing battle and struggle with cancer. Would have preferred a little more on his football life
