    The NBA has returned to prominence on the backs of phenoms like LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, and Kevin Garnett. The media promotes them, the shoe companies pay them, and America applauds. But how exactly do such players reach the pros? What do they give up to get there? And what happens to those who fall short?

    Randy says: "Amazing book, fantastic narration."
    "Interesting Look into Grass Roots Basketball"

    Story
    Where does Play Their Hearts Out rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The story was interesting and showed a little seen glimpse into grass roots basketball. I found the inside story of how urban kids are ofter exploited by "coaches" that are only concerned with lining their pockets. The story was interesting, but the audio production left a lot to be desired. You could hear the reader stumble over her words and you could hear frequent cuts where audio from multiple recording sessions had been spliced together.
