Reviews

"Miller shares the life lessons that brought Olympic success and gave her the courage to battle ovarian cancer in 2011: goal setting, putting in the work, learning from mistakes, thinking positive, accepting help from others, and never giving up. Sports enthusiasts will applaud this in-depth account of Miller's life; others will be drawn to the inspiring story of a strong and gracious athlete and women's health advocate." --Publishers Weekly"Olympic gold-medal-winning gymnast Miller inspires others with her work ethic... With the help of coauthor Peary, a sports writer and film critic, Miller shows what it takes to be a best-in-the world athlete. She quotes Nelson Mandela, 'Don't judge me by my successes but rather how many times I fell and got back up again.' Words for everyone to live by." --Booklist"Shannon Miller has displayed strength, character, and perseverance her entire life. These traits turned her into an Olympic Champion and then helped her beat cancer. In It's Not About Perfect she shares how the traits that have shaped her life can translate into success in all walks of life." --Dan Jansen, Olympic Gold Medalist Speed Skater"Shannon Miller is a champion both on and off the mat. She is not only one of the greatest gymnasts in the history of the sport, she is a great person. Her courage to win as a gymnast shines through just as it did in her battle against cancer. Through and through Shannon is not only a winner but a friend as well." --Mary Lou Retton, Women's All-Around Olympic Champion"I have had the pleasure and privilege of knowing Shannon Miller as an Olympic teammate and a fellow mom. Shannon's strength and perseverance to conquer any mountain in life are something to be admired." --Summer Sanders, Two-time Olympic gold medalist swimmer"Shannon Miller's strength and perseverance in both her sport and cancer battle is something to be admired as it can be applied to conquering any mountain in life." --Bonnie Blair, Olympic Speed Skater
