Born to a humble family in Manipur, Mary Kom was hugely inspired by the Manipuri boxer Dingko Singh's success story and started training under the Manipur state boxing coach at Imphal. With a background of strong athleticism and doing hard labour during her childhood, she was physically ready for the arduous journey ahead of her. She trained tirelessly, with only one goal in mind, to uplift herself and her family from the dredges of poverty.

Mary Kom decided to chronicle her life to serve as a source of inspiration for millions of women across the globe to be a prominent reminder of the power of chasing your dreams. She narrates her tough childhood and different obstacles in her life that attributed to her relentless perseverance. She also writes about her foray into what was essentially a man's world and about her beating the odds to eventually win several medals in her career. She also talks about her bronze medal at the Olympics and her children.

This resilient boxer also talks about her personal life, meeting her husband, Onler and waiting for him to pop the question and the brief stint in her life wherein she almost ran away from home. A truly inspirational read about a woman who held her own in the male bastion of boxing and won, Unbreakable: An Autobiography was published by Harper Collins in 2013.
