    My type of book.I do enjoy autobiographies, and I love my sports especially tennis and boxing Two sports I have been very involved in my whole life.So I as a dedicated sport person, a fighter to the end, I fully understand the book, the stories and the life, even in my smaller way.Nicola tells this story from the heart, very honest, very open, and explains very well the fight with injuries, the battles to gain exposure for the sport, the battles to return to fitness, health issues.I personally My type of book.I do enjoy autobiographies, and I love my sports especially tennis and boxing Two sports I have been very involved in my whole life.So I as a dedicated sport person, a fighter to the end, I fully understand the book, the stories and the life, even in my smaller way.Nicola tells this story from the heart, very honest, very open, and explains very well the fight with injuries, the battles to gain exposure for the sport, the battles to return to fitness, health issues.I personally believe that sport helps you through life, my boxing taught me how to fight my battles in life, made me a fighter in life.Nicola proves herself in her life, her public life and her private life In this book I learnt her health issues from a young life, her injuries and so much .To be the best at a sport, any sport means dedication, hard work and a belief in life, Nicola has all these, but also has great ability to understand her role to the British public, her role for young girls to look up to, and I hope they do.To this day I remember my wife and I spending eleven days at the London Olympics 2012, watching some great boxing fights including Nicola gold medal match, among others Watched the tennis final at Wimbledon as well, go Andy Murray.I felt so proud to be British, for the gold medallists, but also the organisation of the whole event and lucky to see so many sports.Great memory, so thank you Nicola Great read, light, cheerful and very honest.Four stars

    Really good Very natural writing style Fascinating to see how Nicola and her family had to fight to get women s boxing recognised Elements that are all too familiar in our fight to get synchronised swimmingwidely publicised Loved when Nicola talked about visiting the National Sports Centre at Crystal Palace a place we know well Highly recommended for anyone who is passionate about a sport or supporting a family member who is.

    I listened to the audiobook read by Emma Swan.I rather wish I d read it instead, as it came across as a bit immature and like a GCSE essay what I did in the summer Maybe it was just how it was read I wonder if Nicola herself had any say in the final edit of the audio Having said that you have to admire Nicola Adam s tenacity, drive, and dedication and it was inspirational in that sense She comes across as a really nice down to earth person who cares about her community and other people She I listened to the audiobook read by Emma Swan.I rather wish I d read it instead, as it came across as a bit immature and like a GCSE essay what I did in the summer Maybe it was just how it was read I wonder if Nicola herself had any say in the final edit of the audio Having said that you have to admire Nicola Adam s tenacity, drive, and dedication and it was inspirational in that sense She comes across as a really nice down to earth person who cares about her community and other people She had a dream and made it happen You have to give her credit for that Especially as she seems to have achieved it without being cruel or harming anyone outside of the ring, LOL along the way.Not sure I d recommend it though Maybe if you were particularly interested in boxing or female development in sport

    Listened to the audiobook fuck, the narrator had a fucking annoying voice Sorry, Emma Swan, but fuck you ruined this book for me I nearly gave up at 30% Anyway, I continued the book as I love the Olympics and Nicola Adams was an intriguing person involved in the London 2012 Olympics I really enjoyed how honest and grounded she comes across in this book The writing is a little juvenile and comes across as an expansive all about me Wikipedia page Would I recommend it Yes, if you are like Listened to the audiobook fuck, the narrator had a fucking annoying voice Sorry, Emma Swan, but fuck you ruined this book for me I nearly gave up at 30% Anyway, I continued the book as I love the Olympics and Nicola Adams was an intriguing person involved in the London 2012 Olympics I really enjoyed how honest and grounded she comes across in this book The writing is a little juvenile and comes across as an expansive all about me Wikipedia page Would I recommend it Yes, if you are like me, an Olympic nut, a sports nerd or just in to women sport in general.Average 3 stars

    I would never have chosen to read this without the push of a challenge in a goodreads group There is lots to like about it and the story of how women s boxing developed alongside her interest in the sport was really worth reading I listened on audio and I am glad Nicola narrated the book herself as she really conveyed her love and excitement about the sport However, I suppose in line with many sports people it is a little self aggrandising.

    Great information, writing is so so Do Not do the audio book I could not get into the narrator Almost every sentence sounded like a question, and not just because of the British accent I d be interested in readingabout Adams, but particular book felt like and Point A to B rather than a real narrative.


  8. Rachel Rachel says:

    I enjoyed learning about Nicola s journey, especially as she s from Leeds like myself However, the writing wasn t always the best and the audiobook does it no favours either Not a fan of the narrators style unfortunately


  9. Shelle Shelle says:

    it gave a really good insight into the ups and downs of both Nicolas life and women s boxing in the UK it was written like it was Nicola talking right in front of you I loved it and couldn t put it down


  10. Julia Doherty Julia Doherty says:

    I enjoyed reading this book as Nicola was given so many challenges along the way I don t think the book was brilliantly written, but it was certainly honest, to the point and told as it was People s reviews were slating the audio, but I enjoyed listening to this book.
