5.0 out of 5 stars For My Son, Aug. 28 2010
I bought this book for my son. He was looking for it for about a year and we finally found it. He was thrilled and when it arrived he read it in just over two days! So I think that says it all, when an 11 year old by gets a book he can't put down in the middle of the summer it must be a great read!

This book is factual, easy to read and tactful. I don't like stupid names or locker room descriptions. I also didn't want the book to sound like the narrator was an edgy, ultra cool, smooth talking, sharp tongued locker jock so this book is very good. Just the facts please- well laid out with proper language and easy to understand… Read more
