I have had the idea of writing a book for a while now, and the beauty of the Internet is that anyone can put their work out there - websites, workout videos, books - freely without having to navigate through the traditional gatekeepers of self-expression. The most important part of putting this out is your response; I know I can get a lot better at this writing thing, and your critiques will be my first step in doing so. What you are about to hear is my story as a basketball player - only as it pertains to basketball - from the time I began playing the game up to and through my college years. It is to be hoped that you find it interesting, insightful, descriptive, and entertaining. If so, you should tell me. If you don't, I want to know about that too, and why. Speak your mind. Enjoy. #WOYG
Dre Baldwin's narration of Buy A Game was excellent. I enjoyed it so much I started it over to listen along with my 13 year old son, a football player who will start high school next year. Dre's story is down to earth and relatable while being uplifting and full of encouragement. I've listened to two of Dre's audio books and am eagerly awaiting the next audio book!
Meet Dre Baldwin, an internet personality who teaches about life and basketball on Youtube.
Dre tells a story that many young men could relate to - the dream to be a super sport-star, only in Dre case and that of most people, they are not good enough to reach the top, that is the NBA.
Dre is different from most in that he hangs on, and pursues his dream despite the obstacles, and the telling signs that he has no game.
The story goes from his childhood, to high school, and eventually college.
Dre talks about the challenges and intrigue of trying to become a better sports athlete. Throughout the book we are rooting for him, despite the many constant disappointment he faces on his way to the NBA. Does he get to the NBA? Well listen to the book to find out.
I thoroughly enjoyed this easy listening biography by Dre, and hope he come out with similar stuff in the future.
