After reading this, it's proof that it's not where you grew up or how your life started, all the struggles in life--you can achieve goals thoroughly with the right amount of patience and effort. Kawhi Leonard is a legend not just in sports, but in every aspect. It was disheartening to learn about his struggles with his best friend being shot, the emptiness and abandonment, and all of his other situations, but he turned something negative into something with a purpose. After I read this, I learned a lot about basketball and his major achievements, but I also learned that life is hard and you have to keep pressing forward.
About the author: You are an excellent writer! I've written many eBooks (nothing of this length), but you have a very wide vocabulary and the chapters match up perfectly to the relevance of the story. At the end, it was great learning a little bit about you and where you come from. Your work is truly great and you have an amazing book writing talent!
You can feel his pain and struggle as it’s described across pages of this book. Rather than falling down a dark pit of despair, Leonard uses all the negatives in his life to become something that today, is highly regarded and envied by all aspiring athletes. He became a legend.
I’m not a sports fan, but I, as well as anyone else looking for some inspiration in a well-written book, can appreciate the message that Geoffreys is aiming to send out with this book. Geoffreys seems to have a common message throughout all his books: there is hope, and if you work hard, you will succeed.
Overall, the writing style was advanced yet very readable— excellent book for readers of all ages!
