The updated edition of the huge Sunday Times number one bestselling inspirational memoir from rugby league legend Rob Burrow on his extraordinarycareer, his incredible friendship with fellow Rhino Kevin Sinfield, and his battle with motor neurone disease.

I’m not giving in until my last breath – Rob Burrow

Rob Burrow is one of the greatest rugby league players of all time. And the most inspirational. As a boy, Rob was told he was too small to play the sport. Even when he made his debut for Leeds Rhinos, people wrote him off as a novelty. But Rob never stopped proving people wrong. During his time at Leeds he won eight Super League Grand Finals, two Challenge Cups and three World Club Challenges. He also played for his country in two World Cups.

In December 2019, Rob was diagnosed with motor neurone disease, a rare degenerative condition, and given a couple of years to live. He was only thirty-seven, not long retired and had three young children. When he went public with the devastating news, the outpouring of affection and support was extraordinary. When it became clear that Rob was going to fight it all the way, sympathy turned to awe.

Written with honesty and humour, Too Many Reasons to Live is the story of a man who resolved to turn a terrible situation into something positive. It is about the power of love, between Rob and his childhood sweetheart Lindsey, and of the life-changing bond of friendship between Rob, Kevin Sinfield, and their Rhino teammates.

Far more than a sports memoir, this is a remarkable, awe-inspiring story of boundless courage and infinite kindness.
