I picked this book up with really low expectations but actually thought it was pretty great! Was it one I would read over and over and over again? Probably not, but it does a FANTASTIC job of emphasizing hard work (rather than “talent”) in achieving our goals, using Michael Phelps as an example. All of the different comparisons to put things in perspective were incredibly fun and kid-friendly and make this surprisingly entertaining!
