As with each story in the Sports Virtues series, this book assigns a virtue to a celebrated athlete or coach, and uses that person’s story to help the reader achieve that virtue for him or herself.What emerges after reading these stories is not only a greater understanding and appreciation of the virtues that these icons needed to get through life, but also an inspiration for the reader. Each story is followed by a small quotation from literature to amplify the meaning and application of the virtue, and each story is also followed by a series of study/review questions and other interactive activities to help the reader further understand the virtue and how to achieve it.This book is for people of all ages, but it makes for the perfect gift from parents to children or from adult mentors to their students.Other books in the Sports Virtues series include:Lou Gehrig: AppreciationGale Sayers and Brian Piccolo: CompassionRoberto Clemente: DedicationSusan Butcher: DeterminationPele: DevotionJohn Wooden: DisciplineMike Krzyzewski: EncouragementCal Ripken, Jr.: EnduranceWalter Red Barber: FairnessDennis Byrd: FaithfulnessHank Aaron: FearlessnessAmos Alonzo Stagg: HonestyEric Liddell: HumilityArthur Ashe: IntegrityBill Bradley: IntelligenceJim Valvano: JoyfulnessDan OBrien & Dave Johnson: KindnessDean Smith: LoyaltyHarvey Penick: ModestyBranch Rickey & Jackie Robinson: NobilityAlthea Gibson: PersistenceClarence Big House Gaines, Sr.: RespectabilityJoan Benoit Samuelson & Wilma Rudolph: StrengthVince Lombardi: ToughnessGertrude Ederle: TriumphKen Venturi: TrustThe 1980 Men’s and 1998 Women’s United States Olympic Hockey Teams: UnityEddie Robinson: VisionaryHappy Chandler: Wisdom
