As a teenage boy, I love to read Chicken Soup books, and I absolutely love basketball, so once I saw this book I was excited! This book was a letdown, the stories werent the thought provoking stories that I expect from a Chicken Soup book. Previous Chicken Soups that I have bought I havent been able to put down, and they have made me laugh, cry, and just want to applaud the person in the story and yell "Heck yeah!" But with this book it is too easy to put down and the stories are all quite bland, and some of them are just absolutely booorrriinngggg. Some of them make you think so what? I wouldnt get this book unless you want to be disappointed!
