About the Author

Chamique Holdsclaw grew up in Astoria, Queens, where she was spotted early on for her basketball talents on the rough and busted project courts. She went on to break records at the nationally recognized Christ the King High School in Queens and then at the University of Tennessee, where she was a three time NCAA champion. After graduating, she was the first pick in 1999’s WNBA draft and went to play for the Washington DC Mystics, as well as the Olympic Team, for which she won a gold medal. After a bout with injury and depression in the early 2000s, Holdsclaw became a strong voice for mental health advocacy in sports and in inner cities, and travels across the country inspiring audiences with her story and her strength. She currently lives in Atlanta.

For only the second time in my 45 years of living I read a book in one day. I am already a big fan of Chamique and reading her book helped me understand so many things. I appreciate her being open about her life. I also have battled depression and to hear someone on her level come out publicly about their own battle has been very encouraging. Hopefully I will get to hear her speak about mental illness as this is now her platform and of course I always hope that I will get to see her play again. Lady Vol fan for life!

This is a great story and effort of courage on Chamique's part to tell an important story with which many can relate. The only thing that is lacking is a thorough editing, which may be a result of publishing this herself. However, I am a perfectionist and from the state of Illinois, so when you spell an Illinois city's name wrong - it really sticks out to me. Other than that - a little fine-tuning and this would be an excellent book. With all of that said - this is an easy read and has the power to reach a broad audience and I hope that it does just that.

At times the reader is left in the dark. There were issues raised and then dropped, without resolution. Overall a good read. So glad she beat the odds and made Tenn. Her school!

I've always been a fan of Chamique Holdsclaw and was fairly familiar with her biography before college so I found the majority of this book to be a bit mundane. The last section of the book is, in my opinion, the best because it becomes more personal instead of fact based and gives a better perspective of her life.

The story was great, exciting, sad ,inspiring. My only criticism is the editing. The frequent errors were distracting. Thanks Chamique for sharing your story.

I bought and read the Breaking Through book by Chamique Holdsclaw and would not sell it for the world. I really like to read books related to basketball and this book has helped me a great deal with working within the sport of basketball. This book is very good and I would recommend it to anybody that loves Lady Vol basketball and anybody that wants to know the real story of Chamique Holdsclaw. Hope you enjoy!
