Summary

The All Blacks are the world's most successful sporting outfit, undefeated in over 75% of their international matches over the last 100 years. What is the secret of their success? And what can we - as individuals, companies and teams - learn from them? The All Blacks are the world's most successful sporting outfit, undefeated in over 75% of their international matches over the last 100 years.
In other arenas, there have been commanding sides that swept all before them, like the West Indies cricket team of the 1980s with their fearsome battery of fast bowlers, or the Hungarian football team who introduced a sophisticated new passing game and famously thrashed England 7-1 in Budapest in 1954. But what makes the All-Blacks different is their supremacy for decade after decade - their sheer consistency, longevity and sustained dominance.
So, what is the secret of their success? And what can we - as individuals, companies and teams - learn from them? Whatever field we are in, how can we play like All Blacks? In Legacy, best-selling author James Kerr is embedded deep into the heart of the All Blacks' set-up to reveal 15 powerful and pragmatic lessons in leadership. Revealing proven secrets of sustained success, Legacy is a unique, inspiring handbook for leaders in all fields, and asks: How do you turn vision into action? How do you achieve world-class standards, day after day, week after week, year after year? How do you handle pressure, expectation and setbacks? How do you train to win at the highest level? What is your purpose?What will be your legacy?

Interesting book but.......

What was one of the most memorable moments of Legacy?

The concept of the book is great and there are clearly some useful thought provoking elements to the book. Enjoyable to listen to

Which character – as performed by Saul Reichlin – was your favourite?

The various attempts to imitate accents were irritating and the New Zealand accent was not great, more grating. Easy enough performer to listen to but it didn't need the poor accent interpretations at all

Any additional comments?

The factual errors in the book in the end were annoying. Everyone but the author knows the 2011 World Cup final score was 8 - 7 not 9 - 8. The All Blacks lost to France in the 1999 World Cup, not the 1997. Bryan Williams first played for the All Blacks in 1970 not 1976. The problem with these types of factual errors is that it is difficult to believe that everything else represented as fact attributed to other people may or may not be completely accurate

Lessons in life

Leadership books are plentiful, and generally speaking they say similar things. However I feel that the key is finding one that speaks in terms you can relate to. While I'm not a world class All Blacks rugby player I'm a fan of rugby and this was a book that spoke to me on a level and with example I could relate to. This was the book for me.

Linguistic Butchery - get the kindle book

Is there anything you would change about this book?

This could be a great audio book with a different narrator - preferably a New Zealander or at least someone whose attempts at a kiwi accent do not end up sounding like a cross between a White South African and an Australian and someone who can speak the Maori language quotes without butchering them.

What did you like best about this story?

The story itself - there is a lot to learn from this book about leadership, character, team culture and how they interact.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Saul Reichlin?

A New Zealander
