"Footy legend Kevin Sheedy crosses codes to celebrate the most iconic Australian sportspeople of his time, paying tribute to the 27 men and women whose feats have most inspired him during a life in sport. From Jack Brabham and Evonne Goolagong Cawley to Ash Barty and Cadel Evans, this pantheon of Aussie greats also includes illuminating interviews with John Bertrand, Michelle Paye and Jessica Watson. An old footy rival gets a guernsey too - with Sheedy honouring Denis Pagan, the former player and coach who reinvented himself as a horse trainer and won the Australian Derby at his first attempt." -- Back cover
