Scotland needs more winners—all kinds of winners, in sport and in life. As a nation, Scotland needs to overcome its natural reserve and tendency to underperform when it really matters, while finding new levels of self-belief and optimism. More role models are needed—more Chris Hoys, James McFaddens, Andy and Jamie Murrays, and Liz McColgans. This collection of interviews with Scotland's leading sportsmen and women takes the reader on a personal journey to help them become a genuine success. It encourages them to set their own sporting goals and identify their own personal bests, and guides them in how to reach them through the example of great Scottish winners. From motivation to dedication, competitiveness to teamwork, Be a Winner covers all the bases and will inspire all proud Scots.
