    Really good. Very natural writing style. Fascinating to see how Nicola and her family had to fight to get women's boxing recognised. Elements that are all too familiar in our fight to get synchronised swimming more widely publicised. Loved when Nicola talked about visiting the National Sports Centre at Crystal Palace - a place we know well! Highly recommended for anyone who is passionate about a sport or supporting a family member who is.

    This is a bright breezy autobiography, Nicola is a likeable person and apparently the only woman never to have body issues, in fact she doesn't seem to worry about anything apart from her mum and injuries. The narrator is good and does sound like Nicola.

    Fantastic explaining the dedication needed to be a double Olympic champion. Details her struggles outside the ring too. Nicola Adams comes across as a really likeable person.
