Long-listed for the William Hill Sports Book of the Year Award.

Sport's for everyone . . . isn't it?

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.

'Anna Kessel's book should inspire a whole generation of women. It ought to be on the school curriculum.' - Hadley Freeman

'I d go as far to say that this book was a life changer for my health and fitness.' - Estée Lalonde

Review:

Anna Kessel's book should inspire a whole generation of women. It ought to be on the school curriculum. (Hadley Freeman)

Fascinating, compelling and thought-provoking (Lauren Laverne The Pool)

This book is a plea to reclaim tracks, pitches and pools for women, and to ensure that the next generation grows up appreciating - and enjoying - all that their bodies are capable of. (Emma John The Guardian)

A piercing call to arms, [Anna] argues that if women and girls embrace being active, it will lead to a sea change for women's bodies, self-image and outlook. It is brilliant. (Stylist)

I d go as far to say that this book was a life changer for my health and fitness. (Estée Lalonde) --(Estée Lalonde)

This is an impassioned manifesto for why sport can change your life (Health & Fitness) --(Health & Fitness)

No topic is off limits - cringe worthy school PE, the gender pay gap, parenthood, women as fans, menopause, disability and even her own miscarriage are explored, telling a cradle-to-grave story of our vexed relationship with moving our own bodies. She also lays bare the systemic issues: sports science, for example, is based overwhelmingly on studies of male bodies, as if pregnancy and menstruation simply did not exist. This is a book for parents, sports lovers, and anyone who wants to be on the right side of history. (Moya Dodd Australia Financial Review) --Australia Financial Review)

Book Description:

Part manifesto, part how-to, Eat Sweat Play is a hugely inspirational call to arms for women to take back sport for themselves.
