WOLFPACK: How to Come Together, Unleash Our Power, and Change the Game Reviews

  • Cori

    A quick read about gratitude, leadership, transformation, and confidence. Based on soccer legend Abby Wambach's 2018 Barnard commencement speech, she inspires passion and strength, and guides us to support other women by cultivating a Wolfpack. This would be a great book to give a new graduate, but really anyone can learn from this must read. Thank you NetGalley for allowing me to read this advance copy.

  • Brooke Smith

    Wow! Wow! Wow! A fierce and powerful read about all relevant issues! How to stand by your side, and finding your tribe. Quick read that is honest and humble! I'm reading it with my kids, giving it to my friends! Thank you, Abby for your message!

  • Natalie

    Fuck yeah, Abby.

    Listen to this while you clean your refrigerator, when you can't sleep at night, when men are men, when you're eating ice cream; whatever.

    "The entire landscape changed all because of the wolves presence. See what happened there? The wolves, who were feared by many to be a threat to the system, became the system's salvation. Now look around you today, see what's happening here...we are the one's we've been waiting for."

  • Fran

    So grateful I picked this up. I was unfamiliar with the original speech that went viral, so this was completely new and raw and beautifully simple and wholly complex that I need to challenge myself to read it at least annually.

    It's a short book, but a book doesn't have to be long to be powerful. I read this, curious, because a co-worker was super excited about it - then I saw her talking with Trevor Noah. I found myself underlining one passage in each section - not for myself as much, but for my 12yo daughter. She is a competitive gymnast, can be afraid of her power and her fear of failure - and Abby says a lot about both of those in this book. She's right - as women, we far too often find ourselves *grateful* for wha

She's right - as women, we far too often find ourselves *grateful* for what we have, devaluing ourselves and our work in the process. We deserve better, we can be better, and together we can make that happen.

    This was a short book and a quick read. While I agree with many of her principles, in my opinion it doesn't deserve to be a book (I'm glad I checked it out of the library and didn't purchase it). It's more like a pamphlet with some principles to motivate women.

    Decent empowerment speech / "rallying cry" for women.

    I had to Google Abby Wambach when I picked up this book, as I had only the faintest idea who she was. With the recent USA Women's World Cup win, this seemed like a timely read.

    Apparently WOLFPACK is basically the commencement address Wambach gave at Barnard College in 2018. At a meager 112 pages, it has some nice quote-ables but not much depth.

    Based on her inspiring, viral 2018 commencement speech to Barnard College’s graduates in New York City, New York Times bestselling author, two-time Olympic gold medalist and FIFA World Cup champion Abby Wambach delivers her empowering rally cry for women to unleash their individual power, unite with their pack, and emerge victorious together.

    Abby Wambach became a champion because of her incredible talent as a soccer player. She became an icon because of her remarkable wisdom as a leader. As the co-captain of the 2015 Women’s World Cup Champion Team, she created a culture not just of excellence, but of honour, commitment, resilience, and sisterhood. She helped transform a group of individual women into one of the most successful, powerful and united .wolfpacks of all time.

    In her retirement, Abby’s ready to do the same for her new team: All Women Everywhere.

    In Wolfpack, Abby’s message to women is:

    We have never been Little Red Riding Hood. We Are the Wolves.

    We must wander off the path and blaze a new one: together.

    She insists that women must let go of old rules of leadership that neither include or serve them. She’s created a new set of Wolfpack rules to help women unleash their individual power, unite with their Wolfpack, and change the landscape of their lives and their world: from the family room to the board room to the White House.

    · Make failure your fuel: Transform failure to wisdom and power.

    · Lead from the bench: Lead from wherever you are.

    · Champion each other: Claim each woman’s victory as your own.

    · Demand the effing ball: Don’t ask permission: take what you’ve earned.

    In Abby’s vision, we are not Little Red Riding Hoods, staying on the path because we’re told to. We are the wolves, fighting for a better tomorrow for ourselves, our pack, and all the future wolves who will come after us.

    Okay, that is a very long and overly detailed description for a book: in some ways, why read the book when you have read the synopsis? Here is my picky point: if you do not admit that you do not have POWER then why would you need to power up (sorry, pun time) and get it? Okay, maybe that was bitchy but I did not really get much out of this book: sure, it inspiring, but it was a rant to me I said that my review would be honest: the book was just not MY cup of tea!

    As always, I try to find a reason to not rate with stars as I love emojis (outside of Instagram and Twitter) so let's give it some cups of matcha: 🍵🍵

    p.s. side note; my wee nephew wanted to know why it wasn't the wombat pack ... he kept misreading the author's name. LOL.

    I don't usually review books, but as I read through this book I was disappointed, here's why:

    -If you watched the commencement speech, you've pretty much read the book. There wasn't a lot of new information or expansion of the ideas brought up in the speech.

    -This book could be about half the page count if they didn't have it double spaced and a bunch of blank pages thrown in.

    -There were good ideas proposed but no actionable steps to get there.

    I feel like as a leadership book, this falls flat. A
