Waterstones Says

Whether as sporting hero, UN ambassador or newspaper columnist, Aluko has achieved at the highest level and against considerable odds, and They Don’t Teach This is a dynamic, inspirational memoir aimed at instilling the confidence to succeed in a new generation of young women.  

Eni Aluko: 102 appearances for England women's national football team. First female pundit on Match of the Day. UN Women UK ambassador. Guardian columnist. First class honors law degree. Now an inspirational author.

They Don't Teach This steps beyond the realms of memoir to explore themes of dual nationality and identity, race and institutional prejudice, success, failure and faith. It is an inspiring manifesto to change the way readers and the future generation choose to view the challenges that come in their life applying life lessons with raw truths of Eni's own personal experience.

'A fascinating examination of her multiple identities - British and Nigerian, a girl in a boy's world, footballer and academic, a kid from an estate with upper-middle-class parents, a God-fearing rebel... Aluko does not hold back - and few people from the football establishment emerge with their reputation intact' Guardian

MEDIA REVIEWS

They Don't Teach This is a fascinating examination of her multiple identities – British and Nigerian, a girl in a boy's world, footballer and academic, a kid from an estate with upper-middle-class parents, a God-fearing rebel… Aluko does not hold back – and few people from the football establishment emerge with their reputation intact - Guardian

They Don’t Teach This pays homage to a fantastic career and extraordinary life so far in Aluko’s own words. The book will undoubtedly bring to fruition the legacy she has worked hard to build… Eni Aluko grows from strength to strength… Raw, honest and unapologetic - Give Me Sport

An eye-opening account - The Times

They Don’t Teach This…perfectly sums up striker Eniola Aluko’s struggles against her former employers at the FA…a painful battle for the truth - Emma John, Guardian, Books of the Year*

[They Don’t Teach This] is hugely motivational and shows what it takes to be a world-class athlete… Aluko is open and honest - Fadumo Olow, Daily Telegraph
