Publisher's Summary

Think of any sport, and Lindsay Shoop played it growing up. She was a driven athlete, good student, and happy teenager. But when she went to college, everything changed. She quit basketball, gained weight, and skipped classes. Her drive was gone.

After a sleepless night and a fateful turn of events, Lindsay made the decision to become her best self. She discovered rowing, and the sport became her outlet for transformation. In just one year, she became an NCAA Division-I All-American; in four, she broke a world record and won her first World Championship. Within six years, Lindsay won Olympic gold.

In Better Great than Never, Lindsay shows you how to seize your full potential by removing self-imposed limitations. She demonstrates how to embrace every step, good and bad, to find greatness. For Lindsay, life isn’t about winning. As long as you learn throughout your journey, you can never lose.

Love the Story and the message was good

Based on the title I was hoping this would be more geared towards those trying to become great and how to become a champion. Don't get me wrong that is the overall message and there are some really nice takeaways, just not as many as I was hoping for. No lessons either, which surprised me with the author's background in public speaking. It does a good job of explaining the sport which may not be familiar to many, great book for a nice happy story.

Inspirational story!

The great part about this book is that it walks you through her athletic career so well that you feel like you lived her ups and downs. That makes listening to her achievements so much more satisfying. This is a very inspiring story and I enjoyed it fully!
