In Black and White: The Jake White story

The new Jake White Autobiography is being launched today, and I have just finished placing my order on The book covers all of Jake Whites rugby coaching career from the Days at Jeppe Boys right through to the win at the Rugby World Cup earlier this year.


“In Black and White traces the life story of Springbok rugby coach Jake White, right up to and including the 2007 Rugby World Cup. The first man to coach the Springboks for four successive seasons, White’s rise to the top job in SA Rugby is a journey of intense determination to succeed against all odds: a troubled childhood, coming to terms with the fact that he would never wear a provincial or Springbok blazer, starting out as a school coach, to his eventual elevation to arguably the toughest job in world sport. White takes readers into rugby’s inner sanctum, where politicking and hidden agendas sometimes supersede the best interests of the sport, and relates the incredible highs and desperate lows of being part of the Springbok set-up. Riveting, controversial, sometimes amusing and often unbelievable, White’s story will both absorb and astound. “

The book is priced at a reasonable R151, which seems to be cheaper than most book stores, and the great thing is they deliver within 24 Hours. I am sure that this book is going to be an awesome read, and check back next week for my review.
