Own Your Strength

by David Meyer

Abby Wambach, New York Times bestselling author and two-time Olympic Gold Medalist and FIFA World Cup soccer champion,  inspires women to accept their strength and their failures.

You are not meek Little Red Riding Hood, says two-time Olympic Gold Medalist and FIFA World Cup soccer champion Abby Wambach, New York Times bestselling author of Forward: A Memoir. You are, she insists, the Wolf. Wambach shows women how to embrace their inner Wolf, compete at the highest levels and – to borrow a phrase from Brené Brown – dare to lead. Women and all coaches will appreciate Wambach’s fresh perspective. The book stems from her viral 2018 commencement speech to graduates of New York’s Barnard College.

Comedian Amy Schumer says, “Abby is a relatable revolutionary…she inspires the confidence, leadership and sisterhood we all so desperately need right now.” Serena Williams calls this, “a manifesto for everyone trying to lead – whether it’s a team, a company or a family – a meaningful life.” Eat, Pray, Love author Elizabeth Gilbert says of Wambach, “She leads from beside women, not from ahead of us.”
