Although there are some interesting tidbits scattered throughout this book -- and I wish my mother had put a freezer full of food stocked for me and Sis when we were in the middle of our baseball practice/growth spurt years -- I found the book to be pleasantly anecdotal, but not inspirational. It's nice to know "how they did it" but it doesn't give much of a message other than -- this is a nice, solid family -- this is how they lived, grew up, played sports.
This is just a nice little personal book that gives the reader the "rest of the story" and is light and of little real substance. It is just a little fun reading away from those books that contains lot of drama and intrigue,. You won't find that in this book.. This book is not a breaking story worthy of a news clip, but rather a lazy , short, little story about one's family , their trials and tribulations. Read it only if you have nothing else to do for the moment.
It does give a great primer for how to fulfill your goals if you plan to pursue an NFL career. Also a good primer for what you need to do to get into shape, or to make a good comeback after a surgery.
But if you aren't a fan of the Gronkowskis you may find it boring.
I think if there was ever a controversy it might have been more interesting to someone who doesn't follow these guys. But this family seems to have navigated life with very little of that sort of thing.
Perhaps a primer on how to raise a house full well adjusted, healthy, successful boys.
