Good.
Summary
Jay Bilas, a former basketball player at Duke University, chronicles the lessons he's learned about toughness. There are plenty of examples used from his playing days under Coach Mike Krzyzewski as well as from accomplished athletes in other sports such as Mia Hamm, Curtis Strange, etc.
Enjoy?
Yes. The books expands greatly upon an article that Bilas wrote in 2009 that outlined what he believes true toughness really means in basketball after seeing some questionable behaviors and actions as a game analyst for ESPN. The article generated an unexpected amount of responses, which motivated Bilas to write more.
Suggest?
Yes, it is interesting to read the stories that relate to the topic of toughness from players and coaches like Hamm, Strange, Coach K, Bob Knight, Grant Hill, Jon Gruden, Tom Izzo, Roy Williams, Bill Self and many others!

A Step of Faith
Author
Richard Paul Evans
Rating
Eh.
Summary
This is the fourth book in the Walk series. Alan has to recover from brain surgery and does so at home with his dad. When he gets back on the road it just seemed as though it was more of the same, where he slept, what he ate and a few short stories of the people he meets.
Enjoy?
I didn't enjoy this one as much as the first ones. It seemed pretty repetitious.
Suggest?
I would only if they wanted to continue the series.
