Overview

The Book of Sports Virtues: High Impact Athletes and Coaches is a masterful collection of stories about the struggles and triumphs of many celebrated athletes. Each chapter is assigned a trait or virtue and uses an athlete's story as a lens through which the reader can gain the insight needed to achieve that trait or virtue. The chapter on appreciation is the story of Lou Gehrig and Jacky Robinson's story is used to exemplify and define nobility.

What emerges after reading these stories is not only a greater understanding and appreciation of the virtues that these icons needed to get through life, but also an inspiration for the reader. Each story is followed by a small quotation from literature to amplify the meaning and application of the positive virtue.

Virtues covered: Appreciation, Compassion, Dedication, Honesty, Strength, Humility, Integrity, Nobility, Persistence, Discipline, Triumph, Trust, Unity, Wisdom, and Determination.
