How (Not) To Be Strong (Paperback)Alex Scott (author)
Part-sporting memoir and part-self-help manual, How (Not) To Be Strong chronicles Alex Scott's journey from the East End to international football stardom and broadcasting mainstay with candour and heart, revealing a vulnerable side to the driven athlete that the public seldom sees.
From the football cages of East London to broadcasting to millions, the engine powering Alex Scott's remarkable journey has always been her resilience. But thanks to a 'push-through mentality' the world has only ever seen the 'strong' side of Alex Scott. Now Alex is ready to lower the shield. In How (Not) to Be Strong, Alex shares the lessons that have shaped her, from finally confronting the legacy of a tumultuous childhood to tarnished truth behind the gleaming football trophies.
With raw honesty, Alex shows how she's tackled life's challenges and that sometimes the strongest thing you can do is show your most vulnerable side to the world.
