Publisher's Summary

Dan Carter: My Autobiography is the up-close-and-personal memoir of a global icon of sport, a country boy who went on to become rugby's world superstar.

Daniel William Carter is acknowledged as the greatest fly-half to have played international rugby. A veteran of more than 100 Test matches, he is the world record holder for most Test points, has twice been named the IRB's Player of the Year and twice named New Zealand Player of the Year. Legendary unbeaten All Blacks coach Sir Fred Allen, who followed international rugby from the 1920s until after the 2011 Rugby World Cup, had no hesitation in naming Carter as the greatest fly-half he ever saw. Carter, though, is renowned for his modesty and unassuming nature and argues that he has he always "just tried to do the best job I can for the All Blacks".

In Dan Carter: My Autobiography, the great All Blacks pivot with the model good looks opens up for the first time about his stellar 12-year career. He looks back on the myriad highs, including that virtuoso performance against the Lions in the second Test of the 2005 series, when he scored a record 33 points. (The Guardian described the performance as "the definitive fly-half display of the modern era".)

With an equal measure of honesty, he reflects on the lows of his career, speaking frankly of the mental anguish he felt after twice being invalided out of Rugby world cups. He also talks about his unflinching loyalty to the famous black jersey and the reasons why he elected to make a long-term commitment to New Zealand.

What amazing talent, with such amazing drive.

to stay at the top of such an extreme sport for so long is incredibly impressive. a story is so great at exposing the challenges that come with that and and the responsibilities that accompanies it.

OK

Not much depth. Very flat. Not very motivational.worth reading but not an absolute must read. Read better on rugby players and other sports personalities.

Good but sketchy at times

Good book which is nearly too personal at times. We never get an insight into the players/all the coaches around Dan. Comes across as a down to earth humble guy.

Great story but minus one star for the ending

Why would you end it there in the semi final. Frustrated like a pubescent teen.
