A memoir that explores the fragility and meaning of life, even if you happen to be a Wallaby legend. It's the unthinkable for anyone - to be blind-sided by a life-threatening illness in the prime of life, with no prior warning and no time to prepare loved-ones for a life after you. On April 16th, 2012 Michael Lynagh - retired Rugby great - primed for a mid-career full of business, charity and sports analysis, was suddenly forced to re-evaluate every aspect of his and his family's existence. While with friends in Brisbane having a friendly beer or two, a seemingly fit and healthy Michael Lynagh suffered a serious stroke and was admitted to the Royal Brisbane Hospital. He was just forty-eight years old and everything about life and how he viewed it changed in an instant. this is a life-affirming memoir of how you cope, recover and rebuild.
