Book Description

20 July 2012
The inspirational story of Britain's greatest paralympian. In Seoul in 1988, Tanni Grey-Thompson represented Great Britain and won her first Paralympic medal - the 400m bronze. It was the beginning of an outstanding career leading to an astonishing sixteen medals - eleven of which are gold - countless European titles, six London Marathons and over thirty world records. She was awarded an MBE in 1992, the OBE in 2000 and became Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire in 2005. In 2010 Baroness Grey-Thompson was appointed to the House of Lords as a crossbench peer. Aim High reveals what has motivated Baroness Grey-Thompson through the highs and lows of her outstanding career. This recording is unabridged. Typically abridged audiobooks are not more than 60% of the author's work and as low as 30% with characters and plotlines removed.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's about clear thinking and being top 19 Jun 2011
By petej75
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A well-written book.

It focuses very much on the author's paralympic games 400 to 1500 metre races and gives an insight into this level of sport.

The book says virtually nothing about Ms. Grey-Thompson's achievements in the London and other marathons. As an "average" distance runner myself, I would have been interested in this. However, top sportspeople don't do "average"!

2.0 out of 5 stars Bit of a disappointment 8 Feb 2014
By Millie
Format:Audio CD
I was expecting an inspirational story about how she achieved so much but it fell a bit flat for me. The focus seemed to be more on offering advice to others about 'aiming high' but even that fell flat: repetitive and didn't really offer much beyond cliches I've heard before. Overall I was disappointed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bit short 4 Oct 2013
By CathyT
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thought this was going to be quite inspirational and full of the story of how Dame Tanni has succeeded in spite of her challenges. It was a bit short and missed the mark. Read it and see
