When we first meet the young man at the center of this extraordinary and moving story, he is one of 13 children by a mother addicted to crack; he does not know his real name, his father, his birthday, or any of the things a child might learn in school. And he has no serious experience playing organized football.

Superstar comedian and Hollywood box-office star Kevin Hart turns his immense talent to the written word by writing some words. Some of those words include: the, a, for, above, and even even. Put them together and you have the funniest, most heartfelt, and most inspirational memoir on survival, success, and the importance of believing in yourself since Old Yeller.

Kevin was awesome. I loved the book. It made me laugh, forced me to consider things in my life, wasn't ever dull, and largely was a different take regarding books on how someone became successful.

Trillions of fans from all over the galaxy watch six unique races battle in contests so violent that deaths are part of the stat sheet. Star quarterback Quentin Barnes has led his beloved Ionath Krakens to glory on the gridiron and become the most-recognized individual in history, but it is off the field where his world crumbles around him.

The reviews on the last book concerned me, but I think that is an amazing way to bring the character of Barnes full circle. I'm really curious about the war and hope the series continues.

Set in a lethal American professional football league seven centuries in the future, The MVP puts huge humans on the field with four alien races, creating a game that is faster, stronger, and deadlier than anything we know today. Star quarterback Quentin Barnes has spent three seasons putting together a hard-hitting, hard-fighting team that combines rookies, rejects, discarded free agents, and seasoned veterans from all five species.

Set in a lethal pro football league 700 years in the future, The Rookie is a story that combines the intense gridiron action of Any Given Sunday with the space opera style of Star Wars and the criminal underworld of The Godfather. Aliens and humans alike play positions based on physiology, creating receivers that jump 25 feet into the air, linemen that bench-press 1,200 pounds, and linebackers that literally want to eat you. Organized crime runs every franchise, games are fixed, and rival players are assassinated.

I love the story and the performance. I'm not much of a sci-fi guy but this is awesome. I'm definitely reading the entire series.


....back to add to this. I just finished the All Pro, third book in the series, and I love the entire story. The performance is amazing but the book is even better. I haven't finished the series but I'm sure I'm going to be disappointed that there aren't 1000 books in the series. This would make a great HBO long running series. I say that because a movie would miss the details. I find myself connecting with the characters and identifying with the circumstances. This book is good for everyone, but if you're background is that you are from nothing and that you have fought tooth and nail to get where you are, then you will love Quinton Barnes.

I doubt he reads this, but Scott you have done an amazing job. I really appreciate your effort and what is my favorite book series of all time. Thank you.
