    Reading this book I could picture all of the middle school students I wanted to hand it to, ones that would devour it in their rooms in one night, ones that would sneak read it during class, ones that would jot down a few of the quotes that really struck them, ones that needed a lift or a push or some reassurance It will grab the attention of sports fans, but non sports fans will be enad with it, too Will also make an excellent gift for coaches and grads.

    E ARC from Edelweiss Above the TreelineThis book is a collection of rules, quotes, and short snippets of biographical and autobiographical inspirational stories It is well illustrated with photographs from Thai Neave as well as drawing and fun text that look like the cover at left I can t find the information for the book designer, but that person is the real start of this effort The stories are interesting enough, but this is one of those books that I m not quite sure what to do with It s not n [...]

    Rules for life 3WordBookReviewKwame Alexander mixes personal stories, the stories of athletes, and inspirational quotes to outline 52 rules for a successful life.This will be great for reluctant readers each double spread page contains a rule and an appropriate quote, and it is highly visual with illustrations, photographs and dynamic text I will definitely be buying copies for my school library

    AMAZING It s a really quick read for readers that need to feel inspired and or motivated, either academically, socially, or even athletically Kwame does a great job at retelling people s stories so young readers can understand and learn from it The rules and quotes from well known athletes and artists are great reminders at what life is really about.

    Loved it, and I m not into sports, at all However, it is so relevant to life, and especially overcoming failure.

    Good message and I can picture students who will enjoy the sports connections I think Brody might like this one too.

    While reading this book, I really enjoyed reading all the different rules and saying s that can be related to sports, and life I also enjoyed reading some of the stories from the author, Kwame Alexander s life, and other athletes such as Lebron and the Williams sisters I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Kwame Alexander s books and sports.

    Read Harder 2017 Sports BookI really enjoyed this book I am not and will never be an athlete, but this book made me want to work harder and be goal oriented It also made me want to read Alexander s other books If you have a young athlete or just young reader in your life who needs some encouragement, give them this book.

    A Book that Is Truly Inspiring The Playbook 52 Rules to Aim, Shoot, and Score in This Game Called Life, written by Kwame Alexander is truly inspiring With its amazing quotes, tremendous craft, and unique writing style, this book is for anyone who needs something inspirational This book is about the life of Kwame Alexander, and what he did throughout his life to become the best person he could be He wanted to become a star in basketball, but then he realized basketball wasn t for him He tried foo [...]

    The Playbook 52 Rules to Aim, Sho yea yea yea let s skip to the book THIS BOOK IS AWESOME I really LOOOOOOOVE the way the author organized this book is just interesting, in it s own cool and mysterious sort of way It s a pretty short book although it has lots of pages But the way he would write a mini story about a professional athlete such as LeBron James, and after that puts 13 rules to help you step up your game in whatever it is I would recommend this book to everyone that needs confidence t [...]

    I liked this book a lot, it was divided into quarters, like a sports game It had a whole bunch of quotes and life lessons by many different athletes Since I am not into sports, I liked how some of the quotes weren t from athletes, but they blended in to all the other quotes This showed that life lessons are the same, no matter what you are doing You still need practice, a will to learn what you are doing, and passion I would recommend this book to anyone looking for some mind blowing lessons, an [...]

    This is a book that gives you rules for life that tend to have a sports flavor to them The book is divided into quarters and each quarter starts with a few pages from the author on his life All of the rules have a quote from a famous athlete that also makes for interesting reading If you have a child that is athletic, then this might be a good book for them.

    I think I would love anything written by Kwame Alexander This is one great for young people especially aspiring athletes I don t think I appreciated the life lessons of organized sports not having stuck with any sport other than gymnastics very long But with sweet quotes from athletes and inspiring life histories about others, this is a quick read that packs a punch.

    This is a fun and inspirational quick read The visuals are well done It would make a great gift for someone who is an athlete or making a change in their life such as graduation or a new adventure.

    Excellent, inspirational book for middle schoolers especially athletes Especially inviting with the use of quotes from famous people, personal anecdotes, photos, and graphics Although only a 3 star book for me, I can easily see it as a 5 star for the target audience The end pages are perfect.

    I need to get this book for my 6th grade nephew He loves sports, but isn t the best at them These lessons could also help anyone who wants to get better at LIFE A quick read with very inspiring quotes I ll be using for a long, long time.

    A great book of inspiration for basketball ball players or anyone really Great for kids or adults.

    This book is great It has a lot of motivation in it and tells you to never give up on sports and keep trying to find your sport and once you find it never stop playing.

    This is an inspirational book written by the author of The Crossover and Booked It is very sports oriented, has lots of quotes from a wide variety of famous people although a majority of them are sports celebrities , a few short stories, and lots of great photographs.Frankly, I don t know that my middle school students will be all that interested in it, even though they really enjoyed his fiction books Definitely of a browsing type book than something to read cover to cover, even though I m sur [...]

    Many uplifting sayings from sportsmen and women including biographic details which are far interesting than a entry.My favourites which apply to my workplace You miss 100 percent of the shots you don t take Wayne GretzleySometimes a player s greatest challenge is coming to grips with his role on the team Scottie PippenYou have to expect things of yourself before you can do them Michael JordanPractice creates confidence Confidence empowers you Simone Biles

    So many of my students were asking for this book last year It s not just a sports book It s full of great advice from Kwame and inspiring true stories of athletes who overcame great adversity as well as motivational quotes from a variety of athletes, writers, and public figures I think the kids will love it

    I know that this is a super late review but whatever I m bored so yeah Okay, so this book pretty much is a basketball book I mean it s pretty damn obvious the cover has a freaking basketball and basketball hoop That doesn t mean the book s bad it just means your gonna expect every page to have something to do with basketball If you re like me and am not a fan of sports I get it cuz trust me we do not want to go there To be honest, I kind of found this book ok to the point where I would read it I [...]
