Critic reviews

"The most dominant sportsperson in Great Britain today - and perhaps ever." (Telegraph)

"Hopefully, this is a catalyst for not only Team GB but also the people back home to go to another gear, to say: 'We've been through a tough time, there's been a lot of complaining, a lot of excuses, a lot of negative things, but now we've got to switch our mindset.'" (Adam Peaty)

Loved this book!
I really liked that he didn't just put his success down to talent but a culmination of family support, being spotted at a young age by a devoted coach, determination and unwavering focus.
Great read for anyone looking to reaffirm their mindset and expand on their goals

Brilliant and inspirational

I love the back story, the unseen work, the hard graft required to achieve. Yes Adam is an elite athlete, but what he shares is transferable to anyone and in any sphere of life. I loved his views and passion for his country, and his fellow humans across the world. I work with young people in schools and will reference Adam's book to them.
