Get your very own autographed copy of Reach! This is the first book Laila authored in 2002, as she was just settling in to her professional boxing career. Combining a gripping personal story with practical advice, Laila shows readers, of all ages and backgrounds, how to transform the demons of self-doubt and stagnation into positive, winning energy. But Laila's journey to success was not without struggle. In this revealing book, she describes how she made many mistakes along the way, but eventually managed to overcome every obstacle that life threw at her. In fifteen straight-talking, hard-hitting "rounds," Laila offers her dynamic formula for physical, emotional, and mental power, and demonstrates how to sidestep feelings of self-pity and defeatism. Some of the life experiences that Laila recounts are ones many young people face, while others are related to her unique circumstances.
