" The great Yankees pitcher had fine co-authors, Wayne Coffey and Sue Corbett, and this version for young people is clear and straightforward and engaging. " said.

" The Closer is an amazing book written by Mariano Rivera [with Wayne Coffey and Sue Corbett].

The Closer is about the amazing journey of Mariano Rivera from Panama to NYC. One of my favorite parts from the book is when Mariano Rivera passes Trevor Hoffman and becomes baseball`s all-time saves leader. My least favorite part of the book is when Mariano Rivera was being sent from the clippers to Yankees back and forth.

I would recommend this book to whoever wants to be a pitcher, sports player, or just wants to learn how to act to become a successful person in life.

"Let me say first, that I am NOT a Yankees fan, but I had heard so many good things about Mariano Rivera, that I felt I could read this book and enjoy it for the story. And I did. Mariano started out in life as a poor fisherman's son from Panama. He dropped out of school, and enjoyed playing soccer. His life and work ethic are something every young person needs to read. Once Mariano gets drafted by the Yankees, his life changes drastically, but the person, the young man, always stays true to himself. There is a lot of play-by-play in this book, so if you're in to baseball, you will certainly enjoy it. This is a remarkable sports success story, with a man I would want to be friends with." said.

"
Mariano Rivera (born November 29, 1969) is a Panamanian retired baseball pitcher who played 19 seasons in Major League Baseball for the New York Yankees from 1995 to 2013. Nicknamed "Mo" and "Sandman", Rivera spent most of his career as a relief pitcher and served as the Yankees closer for 17 seasons. A thirteen-time All-Star and five-time World Series champion, he is MLB's career leader in saves (652) and games finished (952). Rivera won five American League Rolaids Relief Man Awards and three Delivery Man of the Year Awards, and he finished in the top three in voting for the AL Cy Young Award four times.
" said.

" A very good, inspiring and sincere book. Even adults will like it. You don't have to be a Yankee fan to appreciate his amazing journey from humble beginnings, his work ethic and his unshakeable belief in himself, based on a very strong faith in his God and people in general. I also found his modesty endearing. " said.

" I have always admired Mariano Rivera, but had no idea how unlikely it was that he became a professional baseball player. As a young readers' edition, this book should be easily read by younger children, and has a good message about work ethics, what it means to be a teammate and performance-enhancing drugs. Made me want to read the adult book. " said.

" Although there were a few rough spots where the language and text is a bit awkward (I'd guess due to the transitions from the adult version), I will be recommending this book to my sports-lovers who want a long, good read. Rivera is an excellent role model for youngsters- never losing his focus on what's really important, and putting the team first instead of himself or money! We need more professional sports players like him, and more books about them for our youngsters! " said.
