Congratulations on the book. It looks terrific and professional, and the content is outstanding — everyone involved has done excellent job.
I love the cover, and any book that has a chapter on Ted Goodwin must be a best-seller.
Not all self-publishers understand the many things that go into making a good book, but I reckon you’ve nailed it.
"HEROES OF YESTERDAY - Book One by Daniel Pain
For those who may not have had the pleasure, Rugby League is one of, no strike that, THE GREATEST CONTACT TEAM SPORT IN THE WORLD. Period.
The game has had many legends play the game over the years, some incredible tales of gladiatorial feats .... and some tales that can't be published!
For the fan of Rugby League, (which I am unashamedly!) there's nothing better than being able to swim in the treasured memories of this great sport.
That's exactly what you'll get when you turn over the pages of "Heroes of Yesterday". From the first page til the last.
But here's perhaps the greatest charm and the most exquisite gift you can receive from reading this book is that the stories contained in this first volume are not
JUST from those that made the constant headlines, won all the awards at the highest level. Daniel has interviewed some high profile players from
Rugby League's rich past, but he reaches into the rich depth of Rugby League heartland and reaches out to players, that to the FANS of this great game,
were players that truly meant something to us. They may not have played 300 plus games, but they meant something to us. The fans.
The fans at "Rugby League Club Land". Dan explores with them from what it meant for them to pull on those team colours, where the
love of the game all started from, personal highlights and at times lowlights, amusing anecdotes , life after football and their thoughts on the current game.
This is a book for every fan of the game, lovingly written with respect, passion and reverence for the game BY a genuine fan and is a must have for any
Rugby League fan's bookshelf ..... and that's just book one!

I wanted let you know that I finished reading your book last night.
I am a pretty avid reader of rugby league books and I wanted to let you know that the unique perspective of this one really worked for me. It shows that some of the "lower profile" (if that's not unfair) players of our game have great stories, and mostly seem like good guys.
Congratulations on the book, I am already looking forward to Book 2!!
Keep up the great work.
