In July 2009 Jim Stynes, the acclaimed professional Australian-rules football player and administrator, was diagnosed with cancer and given less than a year to live. The diagnosis caught him by surprise. He was 42, healthy, and didn't have time for illness; he was director of the Reach Foundation, president of Melbourne Football Club, father of two primary school-aged kids, and the husband of Sam. Jim's ability to use mind over matter and never give in gave him two extra years on the prognosis.

This book is Jim's legacy. Unflinching in its detail, Jim here talks about what he found out about himself when things were at their worst - about what really counts when you're stacking it all up.

    " Powerful stuff, well worth reading. The football references won't mean a lot to anyone unfamiliar with Australian Rules, but don't let that put you off - that's just one thread of several interwoven themes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gabrielle | 12/3/2013

    " A courageous book to write, and not just because he was facing his own mortality. I'm not a football fan bur I admired Jim Stynes long before his cancer diagnosis and I admire him even more for his honesty in writing this. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jo | 1/5/2013

    " Searingly honest to the extent Jim Stynes was not afraid to admit his failings, to tell tales against himself- the world could do with a bit more of that. Enjoyed every bit if it and particularly the last chapter from his wife. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Melissa | 1/2/2013

    " An inspiring journey, but I found the author focused to much on the cancer treatment for my liking, and not enough on his other experiences - Reach program, how it affected his family, reflections on life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeannie May | 11/21/2012

    " Deeply moving, beautifully written, truly inspirational. Well worth it's place on "50 books you can't put down" "

    " Grab a box of tissues....you will need them! Very honest and inspiring book. Read it in 2 days...cried, laughed and took a lot away from this about life! "
