We are Rated Excellent on Trustpilot
Here's what you say about us...

Mike Colman is an assistant editor of the Courier-Mail newspaper in Brisbane and the author of several books on sporting figures and military history.

Personalities don't come bigger than Eddie Jones, whose colourful and somewhat crazy rugby career was always going to make a blinding book...Mike Colman was knocked back in his attempts to make this an authorised biography but pressed ahead anyway - and it was certainly worth the effort. Colman has stolen a march on any subsequent accounts of Jones's life...It makes for very entertaining reading.

Jones is a fascinating bloke and if you are interested in rugby or coaching or management this is a fascinating read.
