Possessed of an unshakeable work ethic and determination to succeed, All-Ireland-winning hurler and manager Davy Fitzgerald has established a reputation as one of the finest hurling talents of his generation.
For Davy, however, a man every bit the perfectionist, victory has always come at a cost. His list of playing and managerial honours is matched by a roll call of controversies and arguments. In this raw and surprisingly vulnerable account of his life in hurling, Fitzgerald confronts his legacy, his fiery reputation, and the most enduring controversies of his career, all the while considering the cost pursuit of victory has taken on himself and those closest to him. Candid and self-aware, it is sure to be one of the most talked-about books this year.
