  • "Anyone interested in life coaching or self-awareness will be fascinated by O'Gara's revealing and unabashed self-analysis."

  • "Adroitly constructed... his reflections on his recently concluded playing career contain enough cordite to remind one of the searing honesty and single-mindedness that drove this individual to perfection. Few escape his wrath."

  • "A rollicking read... he speaks with naked emotion, raw candour, and even that rare commodity in sportsmen, forthrightness."

    Sunday Independent
  • "Revealing... Unguarded is a reflection on a playing career that saw him earn the respect of the rugby world and win almost all the game has to offer. Off the field, the Corkman was known for his phlegmatic pronouncements and this book is marked out by similar straight-talking."
