Publisher's Summary

The side-splittingly hilarious new book from Sunday Times best-selling author, rugby icon and stag do in human form James Haskell. 

It’s 2021, and James is at a crossroads. His glittering international rugby career that took him from England to New Zealand and France - including 77 caps for England - is over. What will he do now? What is his purpose in life?   

In Ruck Me!, James sets out on a voyage of self-discovery speaking to ex-colleagues, friends and family, reflecting on his career and diving into some of his most memorable personal anecdotes to date. But what started out as a search for understanding and meaning soon turns into a - let’s face it, sometimes warranted - chastisement opportunity with James directly in the firing line. Turns out he has a lot of work to do....

As funny as it is outrageous, this brilliant book acts as a lesson on how (not) to retire gracefully and move forward. And ruck me - you won’t want to miss it.

A money spinner

Loved his last book, but this reads like a money grab with second rate stories

Rucking Good Book

I raced through this (as did James’ narration!), thoroughly enjoying the journey and update from the larger-than-life character that is James Haskell. Have to say though a lot of what James seems to worry (?) about is the typical male cycle of react-remorse-reflect, or something near that anyway. Hugely entertaining and great stuff.

Honest and good banter

Honesty is hard to find these days, good times, bad times, awkward times and funny times. It good to listen too and I appreciated he life and career stories whilst at the showing how he's learnt to handle life. life isn't suppose to easy but it is meant lived and shows that in he's book.

A step up on the first book

Less stories but more Hask insight. i look forward to reading the next "Hask at 50" or whatever he will call the next one.

New pants please…😂

I miss the rugby changing rooms ever more after listening to this epic. James Haskell is hilarious and I’d love to have had the ability to experience the game alongside him.
Always thought he was a great person & player but now elevated to LEGEND status.
When’s the next one out???

Sequel Syndrome

After literally pissing myself laughing at What a Flanker, I was hoping for more. Be careful what you wish for, because that's what you get with Ruck Me. Suffering from Sequel Syndrome, if I'd listened to Ruck Me first, then WAF might have been the more tedious. I found the Chapter opening quotes from James' besties, read by James , a bit awkward and cringey but otherwise it's a playful romp with the big fella, which also sounds awkward.

an enjoyable book

really enjoyed it, not as much as the first book yet enjoyed the new approach with sections and input from others. read great by James himself. always better to be read by the author. thanks and recommend to any rugby fan.

Letting off frustration and peer reviewing himself

Absolutely loved the first book, some great stories and a fantastic insight into James’ life and the social side of professional rugby. Was really excited for this one but after soldiering through, giving up and giving it another go I’m really not enjoying it. Reviewing others reviews of himself while whining and moaning about the world. Seems like a good therapy sessions for him but really not that fun for the listener, Disappointed that it wasn’t more of the same of the first book. Will stick to the podcast for now. If you want an insight of what others think of Haskell get this book, if not give it a miss.
