We are the wolves, fighting for a better tomorrow for ourselves, our pack, and all the future wolves who will come after us.

So good! This short, inspirational #audiobook based on Abby Wambach‘s 2018 viral commencement address to Barnard College is phenomenal! And only a bit over an hour of listening time. #booked2020 #winter6 @Cinfhen @4thhouseontheleft @BarbaraTheBibliophage

This is a quick, one hour audiobook that was great for listening to while cooking dinner. This book lays out the new rules leaders and women should follow in order to lead and be leaders in the US.

Excellent and inspiring.

I love Abby and she‘s an amazing athlete and soccer player. The book is fine. But if you have seen her commencement speech she talks about in the book that pretty much sums up the entire book. So I was a bit disappointed. I read it start to finish waiting at a doctors appointment.

Only took 30 minutes to read during an #NJLA19 conference break. Powerful words that all women feel. Now how do we achieve?

Short, but inspiring. I‘m not a soccer fan, but I like Abby, and while this is not groundbreaking, it is a good reminder. While reading, I felt like you could tell she is married to Glennon Doyle-Melton, as they both tend to write in pithy, quotable sound bites. This isn‘t a bad thing, but I wish some of it had been fleshed out a bit more.

A little Friday night inspiration. Most sticky for me: “Be grateful for what you have AND demand what you deserve” and “Failure means you‘re finally IN the game.”

Short, empowering read by soccer legend Abby Wambach. It‘s what I love about the USWNT- focus on team, equity, and general badassness. Great points of having humanity and confidence. Good read!

I think I went into this book thinking it was something that it wasn‘t, that being said it was pretty great. It focused on expanding upon the commencement address Abby gave to Barnard College in 2018, and is broken up into rules, old and new. I love Abby Wambach and have been obsessed with soccer since I was little so I loved this.

Soccer legend expands her focus from the field to womankind. We were never Red Riding Hood. We were always the wolf.

Based on a commencement address the two-time Olympic gold medalist & FIFA World Cup champion Abby Wambach gave, this book focuses on telling women how to find confidence & success by coming together. While focused on women, there is something for everyone. She uses examples from her own career to make her points. A quick reading empowering book.

[I received an advanced e-galley of this book through #Netgalley. To be released April 9, 2019.]
