Book Description

Feb. 25 2012

When Rocky Balboa set a goal to "go the distance" against Apollo Creed, moviegoers everywhere found themselves rooting for the underdog, including author Felice Cantatore, who was just eleven years old when he first saw the film.

"Going the distance" became a metaphor for Cantatore's own life, and the premise led to an appreciation and fascination with the film franchise. Just like Rocky, he went on to become an underdog fighter in the ring, and was also a ringside extra in the final movie of the series.

Join him as he shares his passion for the Rocky movies, and learn how their message inspired him to pursue and accomplish his goals. The lives of both Cantatore and Rocky Balboa are pure examples of how the Law of Attraction, hard work, and tenacity can lead to success.

You can accomplish anything you want as long as you decide to go for it. Get motivated to pursue your goals, recognize that a champion resides in your heart, and unlock your Rocky Spirit with this true story about the passion, dreams and success of an everyday man.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must read for rocky fans! April 22 2012
By Matthew Miglio - Published on
We all remember the movies, and for some of us its more about just remembering. The Rocky Spirit is about persistance, determination, spirituality, and a passion to succeed no matter what the obstacles lay in front of us. Its about Mickey saying "Get up you son of a bitch!!" or "There aint no cant's, there's no cant's".
Felice's book "Rocky Spirit" is a classic example of what these movies can do for you. Beyond the boxing element, there are themes/lessons throughout the rocky story which could be applied to anyone and their personal journey. As for Felice's story, he manifests the themes/lessons to his personal story including hard work, determination, love, believing in yourself, positive energy, not accepting defeat. He explains the phenonmenom of the "Law of Attraction" and what it can do for you when postive thoughts create a positive reality. But above above all, the book makes you feel that undeniable fearless determination, and know that their is a higher spirit believing/guiding us through our journey.

I would recommend this book to ANYONE just wanting an excellent read or a boost in their mindset. Felice Cantatore taps into the same magic that Stallone did when he created the Philadelphia underdog. You'll find yourself re-examining your own personal journeys and find a fire inside you may have lost for a while. This book speaks to the ROCKY in all of us. Amazing work! Please do yourself a HUGE favor and make it a point to NOT miss this one!

5.0 out of 5 stars THIS IS A MUST READ!!! Oct. 20 2014
By Timothy E Gregory - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
First of all this is Missie Gregory. I have been forever a Rocky fan and came across this book when I became facebook friends w/ Rocky Spirit. It so touched my heart. The Rocky story is amazing and so inspirational and I cannot say enough how the book just sums up how much power the movies can have. I've always felt much like an underdog in almost everything I've taken on in my life and I've always fallen back on either Rocky music or sayings from movie .. especially "Going the Distance." I want to say to everyone to READ THIS BOOK! The way that Felice's life was changed w/ the laws of "Rocky" attraction ... WOW! I'm not giving away the ending but the ending is the best! Thank you Felice for sharing this amazing story and inspiring people like me to hang on, to face a challenge and to always GO THE DISTANCE!

5.0 out of 5 stars Go the distance in life and read Rocky Spirit Dec 22 2013
By G. Ojalvo - Published on
I just finished reading author Felice Canatatore's Rocky Spirit for the second time, being a lifetime Rocky fan like Mr. Canatatore I could identify with his love for the fictional character Rocky Balboa and how this fictional movie character has affected his life, the book is 15 chapters, the genus of it is that each chapter is called a round, and you really feel like you're in the ring with Felice and you're going the 15 round distance in the heavyweight championship of life. By reading the 15 chapters/rounds and going on this wonderful journey of the human spirit Felice will take you on not only his personal journey to find his own Rocky Spirit but he will make you realize that you have your own inner Rocky Spirit just waiting to be brought out of you and inspire you to go the distance in your own life. The book is very inspirational, spiritual, and I guarantee you that if you need a push to get back on track with your own goals, passions, hopes and dreams, this little gem of a book will put you right back on track and keep you moving forward again. This book should really be required reading for children, many great inspiring messages, and adults of all ages would benefit greatly also by never giving up on themselves, know matter what others tell you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Felice Cantatore's ROCKY SPIRIT Shows How Inspiration Can (and Will) Always Lead to Success Dec 20 2013
By Cyrus Webb - Published on
When you can find something that inspires you it always makes whatever you are dealing with that much easier.

For Felice Cantatore inspiration was found in the character Rocky and the movies that were created around him. In the book ROCKY SPIRIT we are able to see not just how the example of Rocky made a difference in Felice's life. It also gave him a new way of thinking about what was possible for him and how he could find happiness and real joy.

The great thing about what Felice has been able to do is that he hasn't kept what he has learned to himself. He shares it with the reader and encourages them to embrace their inner Rocky spirit when it comes to living their lives. When writing about a speech that Stallone gave during the taping of ROCKY BALBOA he writes this: "...Age is just a number. It has no capability to prevent you from achieving your dreams. As long as your mind can focus on a goal, you can accomplish anything---a sentiment I share with him...The movie was meant to show the world that anything is possible, both in the arts and in the spirit of real life."

What a great message for people who might have felt counted out or doubted. Felice shows that if you work hard and don't give up victory is sure to be yours.
