Praise for Eddie Jones

'A genuine super-coach' The Sunday Times

'His gifts of leadership and organisation are remarkable' The Daily Mail

Eddie Jones is one of the most successful sports coaches of all time. From coaching three different nations to Rugby World Cup finals and with a winning record with England of nearly 80 per cent, he knows what it takes to lead and manage high performance teams. For the first time, Eddie reveals what it takes to operate in high pressure environments, the successes and setbacks, and how these lessons can be applied to every walk of life, from coaching a children's sports team to leading a multinational organization to simply doing your job better.

Forthright and unflinching honest, Eddie Jones reveals what he has learnt from Sir Alex Ferguson, Arsene Wenger and Pep Guardiola, as well as from the founder of Uniqlo and Ron Adams from the NBA. He also explains how he gets the best out of the players and coaches around him.

Drawing on stories from nearly thirty years of coaching, Eddie explains why it takes humour, humility and relentless curiosity to lead an eclectic mix of superstars - from Maro Itoje to James Haskell, George Smith to Kyle Sinckler - to create teams that are relentlessly hungry to win. Leadership is the ultimate rugby book about what it takes to be the best.

Written with Donald McRae, two-time winner of the William Hill Sports Book of the Year Award, Leadership is the book for anyone who wants to learn how to build and lead a team to success.
