The Unofficial Biography of Jonah Lomu
In this revealing biography, Phil Shirley goes behind the scenes to discover what really makes Jonah Lomu tick. He talks to Jonah's family and friends, to his coaches and fellow team members, piecing together many details in his background that help explain the apparent enigma of his personality. Lomu's life has been a patchwork of triumph and failure; at no time was this seen more starkly than at the end of 1998, when he stormed to a gold medal at the Commonwealth Games, leaving his marriage in ruins in New Zealand. Such contrasts are a feature of this extraordinary rags-to-riches story.
