Book Club Claire is back to discuss our latest selection: Sevens Heaven by Ben Ryan. As you may remember from Episode 193, Ben coached the Fijian men's rugby sevens team to (spoiler alert) win Fiji's first-ever Olympic gold medal. His book is the story of all of the work that went into achieving that victory. Haven't read it but now want to? Get your copy (and support the show) at our Bookshop.org site.
