We purchased this book as a gift for one of our grandsons.
Robert Hartmann
This is the true story of one man's disciplined life, how he excelled in academics and sports, and who isn't afraid to share his utter devotion to God.

Alumni Hall was not completed until 1991, and Robinson graduated in 1987!

A stunning story of David Robinson from the time he was born to his work on the school he opened, The Carver School in south east San Antonio. He is a true model for young people. I am not a basketball fan, but I am now a fan of this man, David Robinson.

I had two reasons for reading this book. I know the authors. Gregg and Debi Lewis are authors who write about inspiring people for an audience of older youth and young adults. They do a great job. The second reason is that both my kids are USNA grads and The Admiral is very much a part of Navy family. The book highlights the things about David Robinson that make him a positive role model. However, they do not paint him as a saint, and they show him as a realistic person who has faults like the rest of us. The only two things I saw as minor errors were the use of the term "middies" to refer to the midshipmen. Anyone familiar with the Academy knows that "middies" is NEVER used in reference to a midshipman. They are mids or midshipmen. The other error is in the caption for one of the pictures. The picture is of Robinson during a game and the location is labeled as Alumni Hall. Alumni Hall was not completed until 1991, and Robinson graduated in 1987! I recommend this book for any young person who would like to be inspired to keep the faith and become a success for the glory of God.

Format: Paperback
I grew up in the days of the Basketball hero's. Michael Jordan ruled (before he retired the FIRST time), Scotty Pippen was his protege; Larry Byrd flew; Magic Johnson was only known for Basketball;

But growing up there was one player who I enjoyed to watch more then most, David 'The Admiral' Robinson. David Robinson was the 'perfect sport', a great player, a team player and a Christian.

I can remember reading articles on him in Sports Illustrated, or Sport's spectrum (The Christian version of SI). When it came to his Integrity there was no one who compared except maybe Billy Graham. I remember reading of his stance on abstinence and other items.

So when I saw this book for young boys, I knew I had to pick it up and review it and hand it to my son.

Here is what the publisher had to say:

Disciplined Life, Determined Athlete, Devoted Christian Kids will be inspired by the compelling story of David 'The Admiral' Robinson, who went from the Navy to the NBA, becoming MVP center for the San Antonio Spurs. When David Robinson became MVP center for the San Antonio Spurs, he seemed to have it all---fame, success, wealth, and a wonderful family---but he didn't feel complete until he found his faith. This is the true story of one man's disciplined life, how he excelled in academics and sports, and who isn't afraid to share his utter devotion to God.

So final thoughts: David Robinson is one of the Best players the NBA has ever seen; yet off the court his legacy is even greater! This book will help introduce young boys to this giant of a man.
You will not be disappointed.

Thanks to the publisher for sending this Ebook to me for free to review. This review is my true review and not 'driven' by the publisher.
