              I bought this for my son who works in an administrative/ welfare/wellbeing/education capacity in professional sport - as well as for myself - just for direction.
              He found it really constructive and helpful regarding helping people get direction and meaning with their lives. Inspiring people to be their best, no matter what level they're at!

                    Comments about Legacy:

                    Leadership text in a practical format that would interest people who might be into football (any code) but not leadership or self management. A good way of introducing the latter topics in a subtle way.

                    I am familiar with all the references to other texts and the author has drawn on the best theory and has made it practical and relevant.

                      Legacy is an excellent review of the actions the All Blacks took to turn around an already successfully record into an even better record by focusing on behaviour, culture and the people aspects, rather than just sporting skills.
