Publisher's Summary

This program is read by the author.

Based on her inspiring, viral 2018 commencement speech to Barnard College’s graduates in New York City, New York Times best-selling 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 cocaptain of the 2015 Women’s World Cup Champion Team, she created a culture not just of excellence, but of honor, commitment, resilience, and sisterhood. She helped transform a group of individual women into one of the most successful, powerful, and united wolf packs 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 women must let go of old rules of leadership that neither include or serve them. She’s created a new set of wolf pack rules to help women unleash their individual power, unite with their wolf pack, and change the landscape of their lives and 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.

What the critics say

“Abby is a relatable revolutionary - with WOLFPACK, she inspires the confidence, leadership, and sisterhood we all so desperately need right now.” (Amy Schumer)
 

“I would follow Abby Wambach into any battlefield. I would follow her not because she is a bold leader (although she is one), but because she leads from BESIDE women, not from AHEAD of us...Abby Wambach is what the next level of women’s revolution will look like, and I’m DOWN.” (Elizabeth Gilbert, best-selling author of Eat, Pray, Love)

I need to hear/read this book daily...

I was moved to tears by this book. having it ready by Abby was perfect. It touches on so many fantastic points and provides a clear way forward. A call to action that is achievable and necessary. It is now our collective moral imperative to implement it.

Good for young women

At 40 years there wasn’t anything “new” here but for young woman just starting out, this would be good messaging.

Shortest book, but nonetheless deeply profound

My only wish was that this book was longer...yep, it was that good.

“Life is not meant to be lived as a lone wolf, we all need a pack...Together we will change our lives AND our world.”

This book gives a different perspective on leadership and is highly encouraged. It redefines our understanding of what female and good leadership should look like.

Great quick read

This is a fabulous quick read regardless of whether you play a sport and regardless of your sex. Bottom line of leadership in this book - you can’t do it alone. You need a pack.

Inspiring quick listen

Wolfpack was a straight to the point, change the rules and how you think, and take charge of you life kind of book. Abby’s leadership on and off the field is contagious and Wolfpack is a tool anyone can benefit from.

Desperate Teacher

I am a Middle School teacher in Utah. I go to work daily knowing these are the kiddos that will become our future. I love them, sassy faces and all! I ache for them to know how important they are. I get text messages on the weekly ( yes, I give them my personal cell number) about students wanting to end life because they feel alone. I am so excited to share this message with them. It is SO relevant. I wasn’t sure what else I could do for my kids until I read this. I need to create a Wolfpack for my students. Thank you Abby!

Listened twice in the past 3 months and gifted it to 7 people in my wolfpack

I have never left a review for an audiobook before, but this one truly deserves it for all it has given me. I work in a competitive field where women are consistently made to feel at odds with each other, and at times I’ve fallen into that trap. I’m working to overcome that, and Abby’s wise words, so concise and powerful, have really given me an eye-opening perspective in something I knew in my heart to be true. EVERYONE should listen to this and keep this in their library, to revisit whenever you need to hear these wise words. I know I will. 🐺🐺🐺

Fantastic!

If I had a daughter, I would sit and listen to this together - over and over again. Since I have two sons, I will sit with them and listen to this over and over again. This is a critical message for all genders to hear! Our entire world needs to embrace all 8 of these new rules ASAP in order for our species to survive the destruction that has been wrought by the old rules. Thank you Abby, for your courage to lead from the bench and everywhere you go. You are showing us all how it’s done!

Straight up 🔥 from start to finish

I recommend this book for any woman that is still breathing. You are not a Lone Ranger babe. We are stronger together. Abby breaks down the new rules that we as women must implement to create the community that we do desperately need.

*** audio is read by Abby and every single word pierced my soul. It is always 1,000 X’s better hearing the words straight from the author’s mouth. I could feel her emotions as she spoke and it moved me to my core.

Thank you Abby for inspiring the SH*T out of us. You and Glennon are everything. ❤️

Highly recommended read!

My husband and I are huge soccer fans, but you don't have to like soccer or even understand it to appreciate the message that Abby's stories convey. She is an inspiration to ALL humans. I laughed, I cried, I was inspired. Hearing the story read by the author makes the message that much more impactful. Thank you Abby for sharing your voice. Your message will be carried forward by your wolfpack and wolfpacks of the future.

Authentic Abby ♥️

Hearing Abby’s wisdom and experience in her own voice is like sitting on the beach with your best friend.
Brutifully honest and direct, spoken with gentle ferocity, Wolfpack is #allofus!
I listened to it twice the day it was released and have put it in my toolbox for days of self doubt. I can’t wait to listen to it with my granddaughter 💗
Thank you Abby Wambach! #shero
