    My book is an ok read for those who don┬┐t need many ups and do

    My book is an ok read for those who don’t need many ups and downs; it is mostly facts about
    the author’s life. This made the reading a bit stale. The title of my book is,
    The Only Way I Know by Cal Ripken, Jr. Cal takes us back to the starting of his baseball
     career and his days of baseball as a child. He describes how his family was always
     on the move, from this city to that city, for his father’s work of being a triple A baseball coach.
     Ripken also states that even though his father was not always around, he was there for the
    things that matter. Jr’s father knew he wasn't always around, but knew that someday they
    would be together every day in the MLB (Major League Baseball). I give this book three stars.

    The inspiring story

    If you like baseball, learning the techniques and fundamentals of the game then this is the book for you. Listening to the all-star Cal Ripkin Jr. talk about what it took for him to reach the top. As he started out as a young boy playing in the backyard with his father and brother learning from his father about the great game, to playing with the Baltimore Orioles. The one thing i did not like so much was the title of the book I think it could have been a little more striking. I liked the fact that the book started at the beginning of Cal's life and all the struggles he had.
