The book in general has a very informal tone; it gave me, the reader, alot of inspiring information of my role model, Lebron James. This book made me very motivated into making my game better, and to follow in Lebrons footsteps. From a perspective of an athlete, I believe this story was easy to relate to. The protagonist of the story Lebron James is an amazing athlete and had his ups and downs as I do today in the year of 2015. My favorite part of the book was when the author was saying how lebron James started off playing Football in a parking lot of his complex where he showed off his skills of fast running and high intensity. Out of all the nonfiction books I've read, I believe this has the most inspiring and interesting, lines of text. In this case I believe there shouldn't be anything that should be changed about the book. There was no illustrations but the words of the author gave me images in my head of what was happening and or occurring. An athlete or a person who is working hard to achieve their goal should take to read this book, to understand the lessons that are being taught. In this case yes, I do recommend this book.

    In the book Lebron James: the inspiring story of one of basketball's greatest players, Clayton Geoffreys tells how Lebron grew up and became one of the best players to play the game. In his childhood lebron was very poor, growing up in Akron Ohio James and his mother moved from apartment to apartment. When Lebron was 9 he impressed people with his athleticism and one coach got james on his team and let him and his mother live in his home. Later He got on his high school team at st. Vincent st. M In the book Lebron James: the inspiring story of one of basketball's greatest players, Clayton Geoffreys tells how Lebron grew up and became one of the best players to play the game. In his childhood lebron was very poor, growing up in Akron Ohio James and his mother moved from apartment to apartment. When Lebron was 9 he impressed people with his athleticism and one coach got james on his team and let him and his mother live in his home. Later He got on his high school team at st. Vincent st. Mary high school. But like the other legend Kobe bryant who was one of the best players at the time, Lebron James was drafted out of high school at the #1 pick by the cleveland Cavaliers. From there he was a 4 time MVP, 3 time champion, rookie of the year and all defensive team 5 years in a row. This book made me feel good because of his love for basketball and it was very worth my time reading this book because I love basketball. Like I say with all of the other books by Geoffreys, he did go a little too far into the career part of Lebron and He should go that deep into the childhood, but still a great book. I can make a few connections to this book, like he he wore 23 like Michael Jordan, kevin durant is a snake and left his home team like lebron did. The theme of this book is Greatness because of what lebron james has done in his career. He has so many accomplishments and a few people call him the greatest of all time. At a young age Lebron received the name King James.

    "LeBron is the can't miss prospect." This book walks you through how LeBron James grew up and got to be where he is now. The first chapter talks about his childhood and early life in Akron, Ohio. LeBron grew up with his mom Gloria James. He didn't have a father figure and that was pretty hard on him as a young boy. In an interview LeBron said,"Not having that father figure around was difficult when I went to some friends' houses, because they had their fathers and mothers around." A huge theme i "LeBron is the can't miss prospect." This book walks you through how LeBron James grew up and got to be where he is now. The first chapter talks about his childhood and early life in Akron, Ohio. LeBron grew up with his mom Gloria James. He didn't have a father figure and that was pretty hard on him as a young boy. In an interview LeBron said,"Not having that father figure around was difficult when I went to some friends' houses, because they had their fathers and mothers around." A huge theme in James' early life was receiving help from outside his family. The first person to take James under his wing was a local football coach, his name was Bruce Kelker. Bruce was looking for players for his football team and when he saw the quickness and athleticism of James he knew James would be perfect. After Bruce took LeBron under his wing several other coaches throughout the years did the same thing. In middle school, James joined an AAU basketball team called the Ohio Shooting Stars. The kids on this team all promised to each other that they would all play on the same high school basketball team. During high school he became a rising star at Saint Vincent-Saint Mary High School with his three AAU teammates and best friends, Sian Cotton, Dru Joyce ll, and Wille. As a junior in high school James was recognized as the Chosen One by Sports Illistrated. The attention and fame got in James' head and he uses that example as a huge life lesson. The rest of the book talks about his college career and being drafted into the NBA. He got drafted to the Cleveland Cavaliers and played with them from 2003 to 2010. James then became a free agent and went to play for the Miami Heat from 2010 to 2014. Lebron then came back to the Cleveland Cavaliers and he still plays with them to this day. I loved this book because LeBron James is my favorite basketball player and it just opened my eyes to see that he had to work so hard to get to where he is now. He didn't even have a father figure and he has become a huge role model and just a true inspiration. I would recommend this book to anyone who hates LeBron James because reading about all the struggles he went through and not having a father around might change their opinion about him. This book would also be an awesome read for any sports fanatics.
