'What Doesn't Kill You Makes You Stronger is a book of inspirational stories from Australian A-League football star Archie Thompson that shares his love of the game and his family through the highs and lows.
'What does it take to become a success on or off the field? How can setbacks make you stronger? Where do you find guidance on the road to the top? Archie Thompson is one of Australia's best loved footballers, a ten-year veteran of the Socceroos and marquee player for the A-League's power club, Melbourne Victory.
'Football fans love the way Archie plays with a smile on his face and this book, like the man himself, is straight-shooting. He writes on everything from the importance of discipline and loyalty to how to build confidence in yourself and overcome life's challenges while enjoying the good times.
'His stories will inspire anyone who plays sport or wants to make a difference in life. Archie tells how he has been inspired by legendary teammates like Harry Kewell and friend Tim Cahill and guided by some of the greats in the game. But as he explains, the drive to become the best you can be is found within.' (From the publisher's website.)
