A rugby great confronts his greatest challenge.
It's the unthinkable - to be blindsided by a life-threatening illness in the prime of life, with no prior warning. We all hope it doesn't happen, but for some of us, inevitably, life plays out that way.
On an April day like any other in 2012 Michael Lynagh - retired rugby great - set for a successful career in commercial property and rugby analysis was suddenly forced to re evaluate everything. While with friends in Brisbane having a relaxed beer or two, a seemingly fit and healthy Lynagh suffered a stroke and was admitted to the Royal Brisbane Hospital. He was just forty-eight years old and a father of three young boys. Everything about his life and how he viewed it was about to change. For three days, as his brain swelled to the point of catastrophe, his life hung in the balance. What followed is an inspiring story of recovery, rehabilitation and remembering. Blindsided is a life-affirming memoir about luck, family, mates and rugby; and a timely reminder of how you play the game of life, as much as rugby, matters ... even if you happen to be a Wallaby legend.
Michael Lynagh won 72 Test caps and retired from international rugby in 1995 with a world record 911 points scored - a number that remains an Australian record.
Fiona’s about to start her junior year of high school, and things couldn’t be better. Her family have escaped her mind-controlling dad, she’s finally got some real friends, and things with Seth are going great... aren’t they? Fiona can’t help but freak out whenever she sees a non-picture of her and Seth (it’s pretty hard to capture an invisible girl) and she wonders how long it’ll be before Seth realises he wants a normal girlfriend.
On top of that, old Arizonian gang tensions are threatening to boil over at any minute. Something’s bringing the bad guys straight back to Fiona, but she could never have predicted the reason why: there’s a cure for mutations, and only her brother’s girlfriend knows how to make it. This cure could tear apart Fiona’s town, family and friends if the gangs use it to fight each other, but it could also finally make her normal forever...
About the Author
Natalie Whipple, sadly, does not have any cool mutations like her characters. Unless you count the ability to watch anime and Korean dramas for hours on end. Or her uncanny knack for sushi consumption.
She grew up in the Bay Area and relocated to Utah for high school, which was quite the culture shock for her anime-loving teen self. But the Rocky Mountains eventually won her over, and she stuck around to earn her degree in English linguistics at BYU. Natalie still lives in Utah with her husband and three kids, and keeps the local Asian market in business with all her attempts to cook Thai curry, Pho, and real ramen
In clear, easy-to-grasp language, the author covers many of the topics that you will need to know in order to launch and run a successful business venture.
