Alison Mowbray is an Olympic Medallist in rowing, a PhD in Molecular Microbiology and former Science Teacher. She currently works as a leadership development consultant and inspirational speaker, hikes a lot of trails and mountains and dances many hours of Argentine tango. This is her first book.
\With great humour and remarkable honesty, Alison allows us to travel through her life with her. The extent to which Alison has driven herself is testament to the human spirit. With great pleasure, I highly recommend her autobiography. I hope that you will enjoy the read as much as I did.' -- Dr David Hemery CBE
'A sincere and personal account of a lifestyle of commitment to training and the psychological stamina needed to reach the very top in sport, but particularly in Alison's sport of rowing. Her single-minded determination to overcome personal family anxieties, balanced with her academic studies and the ambition to be an Olympic medallist, was of unbelievable proportions. Alison Mowbray's book is a passionate and humbling read.' -- Allan Wells MBE
