" A really good read. I just wish there were more stories. I really liked this book just because the accounts are easy to read and they cover a variety of sports from around the world. Definitely a must read for anyone who likes sports. " said.

" I am not a sports fan and can't remember the last time I cried, yet I loved these stories and teared up quite frequently.Many lessons to be learned here about helping teammates/opponents in need and not accepting a "win" that hasn't been won fairly. I will definitely be reading these, one at a time, in my classroom (pausing to take a deep breath before the tear-evoking parts). " said.

"Formatting: This e-book had several formatting issues. The entire table of contents needs to be redone as you cannot tell what goes with what. The pages at the beginning of the book, which I am assuming are supposed to be part of the cover, have blank squares on them instead of the pictures of people playing sports that are supposed to be on the cover. Several times, page numbers were in the middle of sentences and two words were put together (no spaces) so that it looked like they were one word.

Content: I loved the stories in this book. These stories are basically those stories that you see on Facebook that make you cry and make you happy because there is some humanity left in the world. I think this book should be required reading in middle and high schools.

"This is a collection of 20+ sports stories that highlight character over victory. As a parent of two kids who are interested in playing and watching sports, we often talk about character and how to play in a God-glorifying way. While this book is not a religious book, the character traits displayed fit very well with our Christian faith. The stories included all show someone who does something unexpected, sometimes it is as basic as honesty and helping others. Let’s face it, sometimes those things come at our own expense….especially in competition. The stories are inspiring. I read several of them to my son and it made for some great discussions. We saw examples of self-sacrifice and servanthood, integrity, honesty, friendship, and so much more. In an age where so many of our sports’ heroes are not really great role models, the people highlighted in this book shine as examples to all of us.

I would highly recommend this book. Thank you to Netgalley and Free Spirit Publishing for a free copy of this book for the purpose of this review. I really enjoyed it.
