Book on Valerie Adams out tomorrow
Valerie Adams’ autobiography, Valerie, with Phil Gifford, hits stores nationwide tomorrow and has already sparked huge interest across the country.
Veteran sports journalist and author Phil Gifford described it as the most honest and candid autobiography he has worked on.
Valerie is the unvarnished story of a great athlete and a remarkable New Zealander. She keeps no secrets in this inspirational story of how a Tongan kid from Mangere — putting the shot in bare feet — transformed herself into a double Olympic champion.
The book’s release tomorrow coincides with the start of a nationwide tour. Auckland fans eager to get their hands on a signed copy can go to Whitcoulls Corner Queen St tomorrow 12.00pm – 12.15pm.
