Tipperary's Jimmy Doyle was "The Boy Wonder" of hurling in the 1950s and 1960s.
It was famed broadcaster Micheal O'Hehir who fist dubbed Jimmy "The Boy Wonder", and the title caught on with the general public and the media alike.
And with good reason.
This is his story - told initially in his own words and then through the writing and observations of those who played with him and against him and the sportswriters who charted his career.
A modest, unassuming man, Jimmy's story is that of an ordinary man whose hurling achievements were extraordinary.
