The Things That Make Us
Life, Loss and FootballBook - 2017
AUTOBIOGRAPHY: SPORT. AUSTRALIAN. From number one pick in the 2000 AFL draft, to six-time winner of St Kilda's best and fairest award, to five-time All Australian, to captaining his club for a record 220 games, to more than 330 games as a star of the AFL, Nick Riewoldt is an out-and-out champion. He's also a man whose intelligence and insight allow him a deeply fascinating perspective on his life and career. The Things that Make Us is Nick's autobiography, and it's as powerful, interesting and compelling as the author himself. As Nick describes it: 'I never wanted to write a 'cookie-cutter' footballer's book- chronologically moving from the under 8s through to the big time, full of hard-ball gets, wins and losses, triumphs and disappointments. I chose the title, The Things that Make Us, because it made it easy to explore things we can all relate to, no matter what path our lives have taken.'
