About this deal

Great insight into a former footballer that I admire who’s gone on to be a great advocate for women in sport and is a trailblazer in terms of women being a part of football punditry. You can also listen on any Alexa-enabled device, compatible Fire tablets, Kindles, Sonos devices and more. About a teen who needed a different kind of support in school that she eventually found while pursuing her degree at university. She continued: “When the book was released, I didn't realise how traumatising it was going to be for me again, speaking about all the emotions and everything that we've gone through.

But it helped me understand the part of the English character that feels it has to cut others down to size, rather than encourage them to grow. From the football cages of East London to broadcasting to millions, the engine powering Alex’s remarkable journey has always been her resilience. It was really interesting to learn more about women’s football in the UK and I loved reading about Strictly as well!

This summer, England hosted the Euros - a tournament held every four years pitting national European teams against each other. Her personal journey is empathetic and will sadly be a relatable in places for many readers, but the difficulties are tempered by Scott’s good-natured determination to take life on and win.Alex also used the pages of her memoir to openly chat about her relationship with fellow football star Kelly Smith.

However, life has taught me the opposite and actually showing vulnerability and exposing flaws can be the bravest thing you can do.

With raw honesty, Alex shows how she’s tackled life’s challenges, in both her personal and professional life.

But through sheer determination , and loads of courage she has fought her demons to get where she is now, and is a great role model for us all! From the football cages of East London to broadcasting to millions, the engine powering Alex Scott’s remarkable journey has always been her resilience.

Bucking expectations is a recurring theme in Scott’s reflections on her life so far, beginning with her difficult early years growing up in a single-parent, working-class family living in a low-income area of east London. The timeline was a bit all over the place, so slightly confusing at times for me, but overall this is a solid 4 stars. I enjoyed every minute of this book and appreciate her willingness to sacrifice some of her privacy for TRUTH and inspiring others to do the same! Former Arsenal right-back and football pundit Alex Scott will be releasing her brand new memoir, How (Not) to Be Strong, this week, which presents an honest recollection of her difficult journey from the East End to becoming a household name in broadcasting. The book, out in paperback today (13th June), is part-sporting memoir and part self-help manual, in which the former England Lioness shares the lessons that have shaped her - showing how she’s tackled life’s challenges, in both her personal and professional life.
