    Description

    From the celebrated star of the US Women's National Soccer Team, an inspiring, uplifting, and candid memoir of how she got there.

    In 2015, the US Women's National Soccer Team won its first FIFA championship in 16 years, culminating in an epic final game that electrified soccer fans around the world. It featured a gutsy, brilliant performance by team captain and midfielder Carli Lloyd, who made history that day, scoring a hat trick - three goals in one game - during the first 16 minutes.

    But there was a time when Carli almost quit the sport. In 2003 she was struggling, her soccer career at a crossroads. Then she found a trusted trainer, James Galanis, who saw in Carli a player with raw talent, skill, and a great dedication to the game. What Carli lacked were fitness, mental toughness, and character. Together they set to work, training day and night, fighting, grinding it out. No one worked harder than Carli. And no one believed in her more than James. Despite all the naysayers, the times she was benched, moments when her self-confidence took a nosedive, she succeeded in becoming one of the best players in the world.

    This candid reflection on a remarkable turnaround will take listeners inside the women's national team and inside the head of an athlete who willed herself to perform at the highest levels of competition.

    Should've just read the book.

    I enjoyed the story but the narrator was AWFUL. Literally sounded like Siri was reading it in semi monotone. Completely ruined it.

    Awful narration: great story

    Carli wrote a very open story about her life: her flaws, her hard work, her triumphs on and off the field. We learn how hard Carli worked to become the best player in the world.

    Unfortunately, the narrator has not put in the same effort. She reads with a strange rhythm, puts emphasis on parts of a sentence that have no need for it, and is extremely choppy.

    Still, don’t let the narration keep you from the story. I’ve been a coach for 20 years, and I am inspired anew by Carli and her trainer. It is a fantastic story of inspiration, and if I ever have a daughter that grows up to be the kind of person Carli is, I would be a very proud father.

    Nice insight, unexpressive narrator

    Love Carli Lloyd. Really interesting and honest portrayal of her mindset. Narrator has no character.

    Excellent

    I don't know much about soccer, but after finishing this book, I want to learn all that I can. I love her commitment to hard work and dedication. Great story!

    This is not a book for audio

    It sounded like it was read by Siri....so painful to listen to. The story itself is soul-less. It's a story about the her ascendancy while whining about how everyone is wrong and she has to overcome herself. She's a great player but there is nothing here I would recommend my daughter reading. It sounds like she's a bad teammate

    I'm a fan of her but not this book. Abby Wambach's book is amazing

    The narrator is sleepy and boring.

    Carli is awesome! This is her soccer story. It’s all soccer and not much else, but it feels real. I wish Carli would have read it herself. The narrator made it difficult to get through.

    Absolutely captivating!

    Carli Lloyd is, of course, one the big heroes on the U.S. Women's National soccer team that won the 2015 and 2019 World Cups. This is her extremely captivating story of how she became a soccer player, how she met and worked with her famous coach, James Galanis, to become of the best soccer players in the world.
    Her insights to the inner circle of the soccer players during the many years she's been with the USWNT is highly entertaining.
    Certainly a fantastic listen!
