The title of the book for me doesn't really tell the story. What does is that hard work, dedication and faith are the ingredients for us all in getting where we want to go. His mother introducing the idea of salt might have been a part of his wanting to push himself to do his part, but it really boils down to he was not willing to give up.
Encouraging and something that fans of Jordan or just readers in general will appreciate, this book shows why you have to have courage to pursue your goals if you want to win.
Two firsts from my boys, I think it's safe to say they have a new favorite book. Highly recommend this book!
