We try to buy our books from there whenever possible.

Postby saintbrat » Wed 20 Sep 2017 11:56pm

here is one of the Booksellers blurbs

The revealing and insightful autobiography of an AFL superstar

From number one pick in the 2000 AFL draft, to six-time winner of St Kilda's best and fairest award, to five-time All Australian, to captaining his club for a record 220 games, to more than 330 games as a star of the AFL, Nick Riewoldt is an out-and-out champion.

He's also a man whose intelligence and insight allow him a deeply fascinating perspective on his life and career. The Things that Make Us is Nick's autobiography, and it's as powerful, interesting and compelling as the author himself. As Nick describes it:

'I never wanted to write a 'cookie-cutter' footballer's book-chronologically moving from the under 8s through to the big time, full of hard-ball gets, wins and losses, triumphs and disappointments. I chose the title, The Things that Make Us, because it made it easy to explore things we can all relate to, no matter what path our lives have taken.

I hope there's something in these pages for everyone who's known grief, especially anyone who's lost a sibling. I hope, too, that my story brings a deeper understanding of a footballer's crazy world. An insight into what goes into making it, what it takes to stay there, and the crippling anxiety that can consume you when your burden is to accept only the best. I hope it paints a picture of what it's like to be the focus of acclamation and scandal, the good and bad of a searing spotlight, and how these experiences can bring out the best and worst in us.

I hope it honours my family-the German and Tasmanian sides with their stories of struggle and endurance who somehow came together, who are the essence of the book's title. I hope it gives thanks for the love I found on the other side of the world, and the beautiful next generation Cath and I are building together.

I hope above all that it honours my sister Maddie.

These are the things that made me

Link finally back up for article appearing today
HM: Roo, the book is outstanding. You’ve laid yourself completely bare.

NR: Yep. I felt there was no point doing it if I didn’t! I didn’t want to write a stereotypical footy book from the U/8’s through to the big time. The motivation was to try and write something relatable, and I think you need to show vulnerability to be able to do that, particularly when you’ve lived the sort of life that an AFL footballer does. That was the way I thought it was going to be interesting to a reader, to lay myself as bare as possible and show some vulnerability. I didn’t want to necessarily tip the bucket on anyone, because I feel like at times people need to do that to sell books, but I thought given a lot of the things that have transpired within that story, it was compelling enough without doing that.

I don't normally read footy players' bios, but this looks like a very honest, warts and all account of a life and career from our great champion.

Which store is it? The Grooches are moving to Croydon next week!

I noticed there was a signing at Doncaster Westfield too, didn't note the date though.
