Eat Sweat Play: How Sport Can Change Our Lives by Anna Kessel

Anna Kessel has been a sports writer for the Guardian and Observer since 2004. She has covered three Olympic Games, as well as several World Cups, Euros and World Championships, and interviewed some of the biggest stars in global sport. 

“Society has led us to believe that women and sport don’t mix. But why? What happens to the young girls who dare to climb trees and cartwheel across playgrounds? 

In her exploration of major taboos, from sex to the gender pay gap, sports journalist Anna Kessel discovers how sport and exercise should play an integral role in every sphere of our modern lives.

Covering a fascinating range of women, from Sporty Spice to mums who box and breastfeed, Eat Sweat Play reveals how women are finally reclaiming sport, and by extension their own bodies, for themselves – and how you can too.” ~ Amazon
