    Proud Epub Á ä Epub saudionline.co.uk proud ebok, Proud PDFA very personal book highlights the preasure of living in the public eye where every part of your life is judged I think Gareth as become a standard bearer for many people a person to look up and respect A very good book that is interesting to read a very detail and personal account of his life to date a very good rugby player who is becoming famous for other reason An excellent book to read well written no editorial errors structure of book is good easy to read Well worth reading

    Proud Epub Á ä Epub saudionline.co.uk proud ebok, Proud PDFA truly superb book incredibly well written and truly inspiringI was always a fan of Gareth Thomas even though he played for the wrong team not a euphemism a true giant among rugby men When he came out as gay when he was still in the rugby environment my estimation of him increased even I read this in three sittings and I

    Proud Epub Á ä Epub saudionline.co.uk proud ebok, Proud PDFThis is probably one of the most honest autobiographies I've read He seems to give so much of himself in the telling of it and I find myself coming away with a lot of respect for the man I particularly enjoyed the chapter which shared the stories and letters of people who reached out to him after he came out publicly He speaks a lot of the support and encouragement pro

    Proud Epub Á ä Epub saudionline.co.uk proud ebok, Proud PDFThere’s an easy joke to be made here that it’s surprising that every professional rugby player hasn’t come out than that one has Your average lock forward spends most of a game with his hands or head between another man’s legs or buried under a

    Proud Epub Á ä Epub saudionline.co.uk proud ebok, Proud PDFThere are many very good sporting biographies and those I have read recently such as Victoria Pendleton's and brian Moore's demonstrate that behind excellence in a world that reuires a commitment beyond the understanding of the reader and often hidden demons In Gareth Thomas's story the first chapter sees him debating whether to kill himself after telling his wife about his homosexuality Through the book we then follow his story from a childhood whilst well loved he clearly has issues around anger which find release in the masculine evironment of the rugby world For readers who love rugby stories this element takes second place to the emotional turmoil that Thomas goes through over the years and most poignant of all is the acceptance that he receives from his teammates when he finally comes out however this did not impact upon my enjoyment of a book by a rugby player whose playing I enjoyed for many years and who presents a moving story of his trouble whilst also b

    Proud Epub Á ä Epub saudionline.co.uk proud ebok, Proud PDFThis is one of the best autobiographies I have read It is beautifully written by Thomas and Michael Calvin in an easy to read straightforward no nonsense manner but is also often poetic The book is brutally honest and frank about his strengths and weaknesses is emotive but is not mawkish or sentimental There is a lot of raw emotion here which moved me to tears on than one occasion but there is humour too It is not a poor me tale in fact he is most often extremely too hard on himself and some of his behaviourAs an autobiography of a rugby player there is obviously a fair amount of rugby talk but in my opinion not so much that non rugby fans won't enjoy it too It is ultimately the life story of a previously mixed up unhappy very talented sportsman who eventually overcame his extreme fear to come out as gay and be the person he always was inside but felt he couldn't be in public It

    Proud Epub Á ä Epub saudionline.co.uk proud ebok, Proud PDFAnybody who knows me will know that I do not often read sports biographies Gareth Thomas's autobiography is moving and heartfelt well written and appealing both to rugby fans and those interested in coming out stories that have affected the way the world perceives gay men There are dark times right from the word go and reading Gareth's story it is no wonder that so many professional sports people find it so difficult to make that decision to let the world know about their true selvesI saw a programme about 18 months before reading his book where Gareth Thomas discussed his life his career and coming out and he struck me as a man who was still not entirely comfortable in his

    Proud Epub Á ä Epub saudionline.co.uk proud ebok, Proud PDFI had his expectations for this book as I have always felt so proud of Gareth Thomas when he made the decision to come out and because I knew our lives were similar The uality of writing was good but apparently it was co written There were elements I could relate to being a fellow Welshman and some parts such as Gareth's letter to his adolescent self moved me However I found the book too heavily focussed on the rugby side of Gareth's life Unless you are a rugby fan it could become a little boring at times or difficult to follow I was also disappointed by the lack of detail in the book I felt that the author skimmed over his deceit and his encounters so as not to upset his rugby fans but it made the book difficult to connect with especially if I was a young confused gay lad looking for a positive role model I crammed honesty I am glad I read the book and I still hold Gareth Thomas in high esteem
