52 Rules to Aim, Shoot and Score in this Game Called Life
I loved Mr. Alexander's book The Crossover and liked his other book Booked so I was eager to read more works by him.
This book is organized by basketball quarters and each quarter has a different theme. The theme is introduced as it would be seen in the dictionary and then Mr. Alexander shares an inspiring story about a sports hero (and examples from his own life) that epitomize the word. After that are poems that further exemplify the word. He labels the poems "rules". Not only do these themes and poems apply to the sport field but also to life. Quotes from famous sports stars and well known individuals are distributed throughout the book.
I loved the design of the book too. The end pages are bright orange and have raised dots to portray a basketball. Awesome photographs by Thai Neave only enhance the book.
