Synopsis

Matt Hampson’s life changed forever when a freak scrummaging accident left him paralysed after dislocating his neck while training with England. A promising career in the professional game was cruelly cut short and Hampson’s life was in the balance on a number of occasions. This book, written with award-winning journalist and author Paul Kimmage, tells the story of the accident and the aftermath. Hampson’s moments of despair and then his determination to make something of his life make this a truly inspirational sports memoir. The book has another layer including the stories of people Hampson met in hospital who had also had life-changing injuries. Probably the best rugby book I have read.
