Description - My Story: A Life in Basketball and Beyond by Lauren Jackson
'I've realised my dreams, been there for my teams, experienced so many highs and lows. The game of basketball, the game that has given me so much, is almost an analogy for my life. You take the hits, you get the ball, you score the buckets, you just play it to the best of your ability.'
Recognised as one of the finest women basketballers of all time, Lauren Jackson has had to overcome many challenges, both professional and personal, with determination and strength. But along the way, she has always been grounded and supported by her family in Australia and her basketball community as she battled anxiety and the demands of sporting fame to find a place in the world where she felt comfortable and secure.
Written with great honesty, Lauren details the missteps, set-backs, successes and controversies of a professional career that saw her representing her country and playing in the United States, Russia, Spain, Korea and China. But above all she reveals her compassion and intelligence. This is truly an inspiring story of a great Australian.
