Quick Reads are short, exciting books by bestselling authors and celebrities for adults who are new to reading, have lost the reading habit, or who prefer a quick read. The Hardest Test: Scott Quinnell is one of Britain’s best-known rugby players: captain of the Welsh team seven times and a British Lions player. But amidst all this success, Scott had a painful secret: he struggled to read. In this honest and powerful book he describes his battle against childhood learning difficulties and his journey towards becoming one of the best rugby players in Britain. When he retired from rugby in 2005 he continues his battle with dyslexia in order to change both his and his children's lives."@en ;
