The Enthralling Story of the British Lion's Most Crucial Battle
The first time a well-known sportsman has written about his battle with prostate cancer
Winner of the National Sporting Club's prestigious British Rugby Book of the Year Award for 2008, Ripley's World transforms and redefines the genre of the sports autobiography. In a moving and intimate memoir, Andy Ripley, England rugby icon and victorious British Lion, television Superstar and world rowing champion, reflects on a life of sporting achievement and confronts his most powerful and dangerous challenge yet - his diagnosis with prostate cancer. Told with typical candour and courage, it is an absorbing and inspirational story.
“Ripley doesn't have taboos. He will talk about anything. Love, death, sex, God and penile dysfunction”
Sue Mott, Daily Telegraph
