Publisher's Synopsis

'An inspiration' - Taylor Swift

'I was incredibly moved by Alex's story and her bravery is second to none' - Steven Bartlett, entrepreneur and host of 'The Diary of a CEO'


An inspirational memoir of finding strength and resilience from the former Arsenal captain and England Lioness.

From the football cages of East London to broadcasting to millions, the engine powering Alex Scott's remarkable journey has always been her resilience. But thanks to a 'push-through mentality' the world has only ever seen the 'strong' side of Alex Scott. Now the former Lioness is ready to lower the shield. In How (Not) to Be Strong, Alex shares the inspiring lessons that have shaped her, from finally confronting the legacy of a tumultuous childhood to the tarnished truth behind the gleaming football trophies.

With raw honesty, Alex shows how she's tackled life's challenges and that sometimes the strongest thing you can do is show your most vulnerable side to the world.

'A real story of growth' HOLLY WILLOUGHBY
'An amazing read. What a book' ALEX JONES
