Incredible Book!!

Kobe has been the reason I am a dye heart Laker and got interested in Basketball. My world came to a stand still when I heard about the accident. Had to Revaluate My life. Yet after his death I learned who the true Kobe was and he left us with so much to live for. Love the man his story and Gigi.

Great Listen!!

First let me start by saying I’m praying for continued strength and healing for Vanessa Bryant, Natalia, Blanka, Capri. I’m praying for the souls of Kobe and GiGi as well. I should be just writing a review of his book, but instead I have to write this opening. I can’t imagine the pain that their family is going through.

We're fortunate to have this description of his thought process in his own words. Now that he's gone, his words are more appreciated than ever.

To reviews pointing to the lack of depth in this book, I would like to offer an alternate view - although the words are indeed few, this book was still able to capture the essence of Kobe's basketball mindset

I would recommend this book to any basketball fan. In depth analysis on Kobe daily life as a 20-year pro. Reviewing some of the most famous players games and how he prepped for their styles.
