A great read for "particular" readers with short descriptions of important choices sports figures have made over their careers and rules for playing the game of sports and life. Simple but powerful points supplemented with strong illustrations that add a "punch" to the text. After Rule 52 there is even attention to Overtime and Tenacity. Broad appeal to children and the adults who should share this book with them as there is room for lots of conversation (Edie Ching 10-14 but could be for all ages).
