Eli manning Making of a Quarter back

Author:

Genre:

Rate:

This book is not a story, it’s about  this person called Eli Manning. Eli Manning is a professional American football player, and playing quarter back in New York Giants. This book tells about Eli manning’s  life  from birth to now.

Quarter back is the most difficult position to do  and the most position that gets lots of pressure, but it is the most position that gets lots of attentions.

In this book there one thing else that is written on it,which is about the super bowl game when Eli manning made a miracle and lead the giants to the Superbowl champion.

It tells how his feelings when he was playing during the super bowl and tells what was the cause of making Eli manning make that miracle.

It makes you fun so I recommends to everybody who knows about American football.

If you don’t know anything about American football I think it would be boring to you so you shouldn’t!!!!!!

OPEN

Title of Book=OPEN
Author=Andre Agassi
Genre=Autobiography
Rate=★★★★★

”OPEN” was an amazing story about a world-famous tennis player that hated playing tennis in his childhood but through his hard work with his coach/uncle, he achieved his goal. He was a teenage phenom from Las Vegas who went onto the pro tour. His coach sticking with him all the time. At first, he loved playing tennis as a hobby and was able to win his first eight tournaments that he entered. His name was Andre Agassi.

At the age of seven, he started his tennis life and when he realized the stress and burden he was carrying because of all of the his very strict coach that would get very angry even if he misses slightly or lose a match. Andre thought long and hard about his future as a tennis player. Andre Agassi explains the difficulty of having an uncle that is very strict but knows what needs to be done to become a top tennis player. Back then, he died his hair, pierced his ears, and dresses like a punk rocker.

Andre Agassi suffered from Sciatica, a spondylolisthesis and a bone spur that interfered with the nerve. I was very surprised that he was able to keep playing those many matches with those injuries. Also, Andre Agassi’s play style was very offensive especially on the return. He had amazing service returns. In those days everybody would serve and volley so a big return would be the key for breaking serve.

I really admire and look up to Andre  Agassi. I wish that I can be one of the top tennis athletes in the world like Andre Agassi when I grow up and I learned that if you want to get better and spend time with it, you’ll always become better after hard training if you don’t give up until you accomplish your goal.

I love this book.  I read this book for a project when I was in 4th grade in the States.  I got to know a lot of things about Babe Ruth, and about baseball.  I recommend this book for lower school students, because it is easy to read, and it doesn’t have hard vocabulary.   But, I recommend this book to middle school students, too.  It would help them understand more bout baseball, like I did.  I hope you’ll like the book.

This book is about one of the strongest football player all over the world; Beckham. In the book, there are photos of Beckham and Victoria, his wife. Therefore, you are able to understand how he is sexy and cool.

You might think that Beckham is perfect, no need to make effort, etc. Though, he made a lot effort to be the perfect. You should read and know that how hard to be a perfect man.
