Hard Knocks is a collection of interviews by Fiona Scott-Norman with famous and successful Australians who had a tough time at school – either being bullied, not fitting in, or facing other adversities.

The concept for the book is simple: many of the most popular Australians today were outsiders when they were at school. Not only did they ‘get through’ those difficult times, their school experiences helped shape them into the strong, resilient individuals they are today. The book is truly inspiring, sending the message that school is only a small part of your life and a bright future is still possible, no matter what the circumstances you have to deal with when young. As such, it will provide comfort and perspective to the one-in-four students in Australia affected by bullying, as well as their parents.

Featuring contributions from: Missy Higgins (musician), Tiffiny Hall (TV), Eddie Perfect (actor), Megan Washington (musician), Brendan Cowell (actor), Mo’Ju (musician), Adam Goodes (AFL), Charlie Pickering (TV), Kate Miller-Heidke (musician), Penny Wong (politician), Benjamin Law (writer), Judith Lucy (comedian), Paul Capsis (musician), Holden Sheppard (writer), Mo’Ju (musician) and Carly Findlay (writer).
