Marcus has spoken for, and inspired, millions of children who are from similar backgrounds to him, helping them to see that your current situation does not have to determine where you are going. That is so so powerful. -- Siya Kolisi, South African rugby captain and world cup winner on You Are a Champion It makes perfect sense that he [Marcus] should have written a motivational self-help book for kids (with Carl Anka). Conversational enough for the reluctant reader, but actually packed full of top-flight sports psychology and no little depth, You Are a Champion: How to Be the Best You Can Be also marks the start of a book club aimed at disadvantaged kids - and WH Smith will give away a copy to the National Literacy Trust for each copy sold. * Guardian on You Are a Champion * It' s down to earth, practical, and written with his trademark warmth and empathy.
