I loved this book! It was well written and moving, exciting sports recounts, a love story, and the struggles of the famous athlete. I had no real opinion of Andre but now am a big fan. I felt that I was carried behind the scenes into the mind of a super athlete. I am also very impressed with his "giving back" philosophy. Very worth listening to...great narrator too!
great depiction of that time frame. great characters, awesome last one third of the book. beginning is slow though.
I couldnt finish this book. it was such obvious stuff and self promoting of his prior career. it is a waste of time and a waste of a credit.
I normally veer away from books with this topic but this one is SOOO good. It is well written, smart, sweet, heart warming. It will make you happy and sad at the same time. A MUST READ!!
I plan to listen to it at least once a year to remember some of the important lessons. This book gave me a peaceful feeling towards all of the scary teenage years I have in front of me as a parent.
Blessing of a Skinned Knee - same approach except for younger kids.
Tina Fey is so funny! I also loved the behind the scene view into SNL and 30 Rock.
Really light and easy. A very nice break from some of the more serious topics out there.
She is a great narrator.
