Too Many Reasons to Live [9781529073249]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Rugby league legend Rob Burrow's memoir will be one of the most inspirational books you'll ever read. It will move you to tears and make you laugh. It will make you angry at the unfairness and cruelty of life. It will make you marvel at the fortitude and limits of the human spirit. And, like all the best books, perhaps it will make you reassess your own approach to living.

Since the age of seven Rob Burrow, the beating heart of the legendary Leeds Rhinos rugby league team, has been proving people wrong. Told that he was too small to play rugby league he went on, against all logic, to have one of the most decorated careers in English rugby league's modern history. Then, at thirty-seven, he was diagnosed with motor neurone disease.

This is the story of a man who is channelling all that determination and positivity into his biggest battle yet.

Too Many Reasons to Live isn't just a rugby league book, or just a book for sports fans. It's an extraordinary story of love and friendship, of infinite kindness and boundless courage.

As Rob takes on his new battle, he is doing what he has done his entire life - proving people wrong. Too Many Reasons to Live is a book for anyone fighting their own battles with illness or other kinds of adversity, and a reminder that no one is going through it alone.

'Occasionally in life you come across a person who is talented yet humble, brave but not foolish, iconic and unaware of his own impact. Rob Burrow is such a man - a pocket rocket of a player and a giant of a character. It has been a privilege to watch him play and to know him off the pitch. He is one in a million and his story is truly inspirational' Clare Balding

'I'm not giving in until my last breath' Rob Burrow


Rob Burrow is a former professional rugby league footballer who spent sixteen years playing for the Leeds Rhinos in the Super League, before retiring in 2017. An England and Great Britain representative, he spent his entire professional career with Leeds. At five foot five, and weighing less than eleven stone, Burrow was known for many years as 'the smallest player in Super League'.

Despite this, he was one of the most successful players in the competition's history, winning a total of eight Super League championships and two Challenge Cups, being named on the Super League Dream Team on three occasions, and winning the Harry Sunderland Trophy twice.

On 19 December 2019 it was publicly revealed Burrow had been diagnosed with motor neurone disease (MND). The BBC followed Rob for a year for their documentary My Year with MND. It was watched by over two million people.
