Présentation de l'éditeur

On 4 August 2012 Jessica Ennis kicked off what some described as the greatest night in British sporting history. For her it was the end of a long, winding, and sometimes harrowing road. Nobody was under more pressure at the London Olympics than 'the face of the Games'. Yet Jessica delivered the heptathlon gold medal, and the huge outpouring of relief she showed afterwards hinted at the roller-coaster journey she had been on. Behind the smiles and politeness, Jessica has endured much. Bullied at school for being small, she proved to critics and rivals alike that size really didn't matter. Hers is an inspiring tale of following your dreams no matter what life throws at you. In 2008 Jessica thought her career might be over when she was injured on the eve of the Olympic Games in Beijing. But she overcame this setback to rebuild her career and technique, becoming the world and European champion in successive years. Her biggest test was yet to come, though, when her rivals overhauled her in the build-up to London. Unbelievable is a refreshingly candid account of her rise to fame in a highly charged world in which body image issues and drug abuses lurk. From the unique pressures facing her, to behind-the-scenes glimpses into the greatest show on earth, and a revealing account of her love-hate relationship with her long-term coach, Jessica reveals the truth behind the smiles for the first time. Unbelievable includes exclusive behind-the-scenes photos. This is the story of how the girl next door became London's poster girl, and how an ordinary woman used an extraordinary talent to claim the title of the world's greatest all-round female sports star.

I've become something of a fan for Jessica Ennis. Perhaps just because she is so regular in my mind. She is a great example of what can happen if you are encouraged early on and you work hard and keep it real. Everyday working parents, typical enough start in life and with extraordinary work came great success. Meanwhile you have to walk the fine line of watching other "juice" and make huge gains in strength and speed and you know something is most likely afoul but what can you do? So much effort goes into these events. You might wonder what goes through someone's mind waiting for their turn in an event where the whole world is watching. That's what's in this book.

As someone who runs a good bit, I have been injured a few times and I know how painful it is to have to stop that which you love. I was running so often that one day I felt a muscle just give out on me. So I started riding a bike to get my fix for being active, up until the wheel got caught in a train track, flipped over at 30 km/hour and flipped over, broke three ribs, my collar bone and really hurt my elbow and hip. It took me 7 months to heal up. Meanwhile all that had been gained is quickly erased. It can drive you mad. So when I read of Jessica's injury I know how hard it can be. I think it is the not knowing. As she writes in the book, everyone tells you everything will be fine. And then it isn't. And then you get injured again and they tell you everything will be fine again, and this time it is. Everyday is spent stressing your body to its limits. Things break and only then do you know if you pushed too hard. In this world every Olympian is pushing themselves to the max. Imagine that every day you train and year after year you make small gains in your speed, strength and delivery. It's not for fame or money. It's to know you are the best. And the entire time to strive to be the best and get that gold, you have to know that it won't last.

This is the kind of book I really like to read. Bought it from the UK store and had it delivered to the United States before the Kindle version hit the US. Bought it again once it hit the Kindle. Excellent athlete and an equally excellent book. Grateful she shared her experience. Good luck in your future Jessica!

A surprisingly well written book and it shows her life, warts and all. Some very big highs and lows throughout her life and although I have read very few autobiographies I really enjoyed this one. I would like to have known more about the funding of her team (where it came from etc) but other than that it is very comprehensive.
