I thoroughly enjoyed the parents' perspective and felt many of my own challenges raising a baseball child. I had the privlege of taking the first photo of Verlander in a Tigers game back in 2005 at Instructional League and have the chance to exchange a few words early in spring training each year. Nice to read the background of a fantastic player.

If you are a fan of Justin Verlander, you will likely appreciate this book. There is thoughtful and helpful advice from his parents, and it's a nice, easy read. I'm glad I bought the book.

I love the story of Justin Verlander. I live in Michigan and am an avid Tiger's fan PLUS my son has been drafed by a Major League team as a right handed pitcher and is starting his professional baseball career. It's interesting to read about Justin's journey through the system and it gives us a better idea of what to expect. The story is heartfelt and motivating.

The book was extremely enjoyable and as parents of two baseball players we can relate to and confirm the stories we read in the book. We have shared many of the same experiences and the book contains very good advice and lessons. This is an excellent story of how a young man can rise to the top with the help of a supportive family and friends.

What an Amazing Book! What a wonderful thing for this family to share their story to help others. This book is not only for the aspiring athlete but for parenting and the youth. Provides you with stories that will make you think and LAUGH! Thank you Verlanders for your "time" to make our times better.

I truly enjoyed this book and understand why Justin's Parents were encouraged to write this book. While reading it I could just feel the wisdom, love, pride, and closeness that this family has. His family just sounds incredible and I will enjoy watching their son play baseball even more. They have so very much to be grateful for and they seem so down to earth. I love all of the photos and believe everyone that picks this book up in my home won't be able to put it own. So I would just like to say thank you so much to the Verlanders.
