all to play for
I am delighted to have published my book, ‘All to Play For’ with Ebury Press (an imprint of Penguin Random House). From the shared experience of a nationwide event and the individual benefits gained from lacing up our trainers and getting out there to the political power of a footballer’s Twitter account, All to Play For is a roadmap for how sports can unite us in the worst of times.
Illuminated by interviews with a diverse range of sports insiders, this book dives into the vibrant past, present and future of the industry to show how sport will lead us out of the darkness. Covering the rise of the athlete activist, the vital role of grassroots organisations, the secret recipe for making sport an effective tool for change and ten bold predictions on how it will guide us in the future, the book explains why and how sport has the power to heal a divided world.
Please feel free to get in touch if you would like to discuss broader access to the book for the purpose of media coverage, presentations, wider orders and so on. Alternatively it can be ordered in single copy via the link below.
A timely, engaging and thought-provoking read from an ideal guide to explore what the future may hold.
