Description - Eddie Jones: Rugby Maverick by Mike Colman
From the Wallabies to England, this is the first biography of the inspiring, infuriating and enigmatic super coach, Eddie Jones.
'Conflict in any organization is important, because from conflict you get creativity. I had to find different ways to generate the right kind of conflict.'
From his Sydney school days playing alongside the legendary Ella brothers, to his years as Wallabies' coach -- including the loss of the 2003 World Cup Final by the narrowest of margins -- to his masterminding of Japan's jaw-dropping victory over South Africa in the 2015 World Cup, to his revitalization of English rugby, Eddie Jones has always been a polarizing figure, known for his intelligence, his punishing work ethic, and his verbal skills that can be inspiring and devastating in equal measure.
Drawing on over a hundred interviews with former teammates, players and colleagues, veteran rugby writer Mike Colman brings a rare level of insight to this indomitable, driven man whose longevity and success across different teams and different hemispheres mark him as one of the world's coaching greats.
