Publisher's Summary

In Life as I Know It, Michelle Payne tells her deeply moving story. It will lift your spirits, stir your heart and give you courage.
Michelle was six months old, the youngest of eleven children, when the family was hit with the tragic death of their mother, Mary. Their father, Paddy, a renowned horseman, raised his children alone. As a family, they all took on the daily demands of racehorses and a dairy farm as well as school and work. Family meant everything.
Michelle was put on a horse aged four. At five years old her dream was to win the Melbourne Cup. At 30 she rode into history as the first female jockey to win the cup. Her strapper was her brother, Stevie. So when she declared that anyone who said women couldn't compete with men in the racing industry could get stuffed, the nation stood up and cheered.
It was a moment that inspired everyone who dreams of beating the odds.

Loved it

This was the most enjoyable, true story I have listened to. I could not stop listening to it and listened every opportunity I had. The book isn't too long and gets straight to the facts. I The narrating was so believable and easy to listen to. I just loved it.
