Publisher's Summary

Hoop Dreams Fulfilled is a detailed, first-person account of an athlete's failures and struggles on his way to playing professional basketball. Through in-depth experiences, Tyson Hartnett describes his journey playing basketball starting in fourth grade, through high school, college, and eventually professionally overseas. He profiles his mistakes and failures and his eventual redemption.

This isn't just a book about an athlete achieving his goals. It's about the worst things Tyson experienced, so younger athletes can learn from him. It's about what happens when athletes are so focused on their sports that they don't care about anything else in life and the repercussions of that mind-set. Hoop Dreams Fulfilled touches on deep, intense sports psychology and the weight and pressure many athletes feel but are afraid to talk about. Tyson recaps his failures in excruciating detail so others can learn from them.

Hoop Dreams Fulfilled will appeal to anyone who has had significant challenges in life yet realized his or her potential to overcome and master these challenges. It contains universal life lessons that will appeal to people from all areas of life.

    Tyson. It's his life story so far.


    Which character – as performed by Tyson Hartnett – was your favorite?

    All of his coaches voices where pretty funny.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
