Game of the Mind: "Martin Johnson - The Autobiography" by Martin Johnson
The Autobiography - Martin Johnson

Rugby as I see it is a game of the mind: for all the strength, all the bashing all the dark dark places you go to (in the scrum for one) you need to have a clear mind to make the move that takes you beyond the try line. As a player Martin Johnson was great. As a coach not so much. View the 1997 Lions DVDs, going back 14 years and see that Martin Johnson's pep talks are very elementary. He's a brute of a man who could play second row and lead from the trenches. What is required now is a far more cerebral approach with good man management skills. As a Captain both for the Lions and England he was surrounded by good lieutenants and captains. Easy to be a leader then. He did not make the transition to General where he could see the whole landscape and arena of the upcoming battle. Any venture of this nature and it is so, requires the ability to connect up the dots from the microcosm to the macro. This demands, at the most basic level, to know your own strengths and weaknesses, employ staff who compliment you and to hold actions accountable to a clear vision. Johnson failed on all levels. Maybe he would be a good forward's coach, but that's about it. At least he finally stepped down which showed his self esteem wasn't at rock bottom, unlike Andrews.

 

But the book is great...

The Player and the Pixie
The Player and the Pixie (Rugby Book 2) - L.H. Cosway,Penny Reid
I really didn't like Sean from book 1. I thought he was an asshole. I wasn't crazy about Lucy either. Lucy was too dependent on her brother's generosity and blamed her mother for her stealing. Get therapy you idiot! I read this in the hope that I would end up liking both of them by the end.
Despite my issues (not liking either character to start, Sean not knowing how to get a woman off, etc) I kept reading this. I enjoyed the writing and the banter between all the characters. I ended the book not hating Sean anymore, so there's that. Lucy got some help and stood up for herself. A huge point in Sean's favor: He fell for Lucy. Just. As. She. Was.

Sexy
Playing House (Sydney Smoke Rugby Series Book 5) - Amy Andrews
This is book #5, in the Sydney Smoke Rugby series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment of the series, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this series in order.

Eleanore AKA "Nell" has a family who does not understand her.  They have no idea why she prefers to think about an earlier era in history, as well as design costumes appropriate for it.  She has other matters she finds pressing, so she tells herself to take a chance.

Bodie has no idea he has met the little sister of his teammate and best friend.  If he knew, he would never be thinking hot as Hades ideas about her.  Much less acting on them.  When he does find out, can he forgive her for wanting a life of her own?

This story was so sweet and yet so very sexy.  Right at the beginning, these characters had steam coming off the pages as I read.  The sparks were flying and I felt them as if I was there in the story.  I was excited to see such an amazing addition to the series.  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
