No. Very very dull and confusing for a child
on July 29, 2015
I had great hopes for this book, based on the description. What could be better than to introduce Coach Wooden's pyramid of principles to my grandchildren (5 and 7 years old).
I sat down as soon as it arrived, to read through ahead of bringing it to their house (I always like to be sure before sitting down with them to read). Honestly, I was completely lost by the end of the second page. It makes no sense! The "story line" (and I use the term very loosely) is incomprehensible to me; I can only imagine how bored a child would be. The book is horrible, to be blunt.
If you are familiar with the pyramid of success -- you will see that the larger concepts are presented in the book -- but in a way that is so very dull from what I imagine a child's perspective to be (of course I wouldn't expect it to be interesting from an adult perspective).
I will not be bringing the book to my visit with grandchildren tomorrow (why punish them?) -- I thought about donating it to Goodwill -- but that just seems to me a mean and dismissive thing to do (why should a useless castoff be presented as anything good, just because someone can afford less?). SO into the garbage it goes.
