When Jake White took over as Springbok coach in 2004, few supporters - and even fewer Springbok rugby players - could ever have believed that the squad he would build over four years would bring home the Webb Ellis Trophy. 

In Black and White is the gripping autobiography of only the second man to coach the Springboks to World Cup glory. White's story is characterized by intense determination to succeed against all odds, from a troubled childhood to his eventual elevation to arguably the toughest job in world sport.

White takes readers into rugby's inner sanctum, where politicking and hidden agendas sometimes supersede the best interests of the sport, and relates the incredible highs and desperate lows of being part of the Springbok set-up. Administrative and political interference, press and public criticism, player injuries and personal sacrifices are all part and parcel of a Springbok coach's life, and White covers all these subjects in his riveting, controversial, and sometimes amusing and often unbelievable story.
