Summary

Warren Gatland's In the Line of Fire is the ultimate chronicle of this summer's remarkable Lions tour to New Zealand - home of the fearsome All Blacks, the double world champions - which culminated in a historic and nerve-shredding series draw.

The book is the Head Coach's wonderfully candid and vibrant record of the withering ferocity, the turbulent peaks and troughs and the triumphs and despairs of one of sport's toughest challenges. It gives rugby fans an unparalleled front-row seat with the squad and coaching team during every facet of preparing for and executing a successful tour on the opposite side of the planet, recounting intriguing details on everything from pre-tour planning and strategy to on-tour experiences, analysis and decision making.

It all adds up to a thrillingly definitive exposition and post-mortem of a mind-blowing six weeks in the cauldron which forged the mighty All Blacks.

One eyed

Very one eyed account, All Blacks should have been penalised more, Lions that was never a penalty. Still a great listen for any Rugby fan.

Great book for serious rugby geek.

Very interesting account by Lions/ Wales coach Warren Garland. , who interestingly enough, is a Kiwi. He took a lot of heat from the New Zealand press, but is an excellent rugby coach.
