    Kobe Bryant

    This book is about a young man by the name of Kobe Bryant. Its starts at the beginning in Philadelphia where kobe was born. Joe Layden then goes on to explain his move to Italy, and then back to the U.S.A. to play for huis high school basketball team. As the book goes on, Layden explains Kobe's high school career and all of his achievements. After high school kobe decided to go to the NBA. Throughout the rest of the book it explains how Kobe overcame many challenges and is becoming one of the best players ever to put on a jersey. I would recomend this book to anyone who wants to learn more about Kobe Bryant and his life. I liked how this book explained in detail about Kobe's high school and NBA career. But i didnt like how it didnt tell very much of Kobe's life in Italy.

    For Any NBA fan who loves Basketball period

    Yes, I would recommend this book to young kids or if your just want to know more about Kobe as a person, where he grew up, where he went to high school, how his first years in the NBA were good but could of been beeter. And if you read this book then you kind of understand why KOBE is the way he is, closed off to everyone, and doesn't hang out with any teammates, etc. I would rather read this book a thousand times than reading a book that, I wouldn't pay any attention to at all. I also choose this book because it shows you how to be true to yourself, be honest,have pride in yourself and while playing basketball show resprct to everyone you play with. This book is just more than a regular book it's everything you want in a book.

    The reason I give this book 4-out-of-5 stars is because it shows some of the earleir true talent's of Kobe Bryant.It also gives you a idea of the many more things to come for this young athlete as he give true NBA fans a definition of basketball and how it should be played.
