About Keith Earls...

Keith Earls has become one of the most admired and respected players of his generation. A British & Irish Lion, he is still playing at the top of his game for Ireland and in the famous red of Munster. A lethal finisher blessed with a sprinter’s speed, Earls is the second-highest try scorer of all time for his country. Yet, Earls has achieved these milestones whilst being racked by private battles with his mental health for most of his career. His natural talent brought him into the privileged bastion of elite rugby union and this honest, inspirational autobiography tells the story of his long struggle to reconcile those two worlds. Fight Or Flight: My Life, My Choices is a confessional, intimate and courageous story of the pain that was a constant companion to the glory.
