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.

Paulie was quite simply one of the best players Ireland and Munster have ever seen. Really enjoyed listening to this and the voice acting was brilliant (tho the Northern Ireland accents are a little naff).

You can tell that John Cormack really gave this his all, the emotion was evident in his voice throughout and added to the experience of listening to this book.
