From start to finish, The Keeper: A Life of Saving Goals and Achieving Them is a very good book. Although Tim Howard has been playing soccer most of his life, he became famous on the world’s stage in 2014 when playing for the United States National Team. This is his story in his words. The details of his childhood battles with hyperactivity and Tourettes Syndrome are especially touching. He shows us how anyone can achieve greatness if they put their mind to it and work hard.
