"Playing college basketball was my dream since I first picked up the ball at the age of four, but as I got older and older my thoughts of achieving this dream started to dwindle. At the age of seventeen, severe toe and ankle injuries prevented me from playing my senior year in high school and I ultimately ended up giving up hope of ever playing college basketball. Four years later, I was lucky enough to meet Frank in person where he told me that it’s never too late to achieve your sports dreams. He proposed that I should read his book. Prior to reading Frank’s book, I had completely given up on ever playing basketball again. I thought I was too old and no college would want to recruit a twenty-one-year old, when they can recruit an eighteen-year old, straight out of high school. But the more I read, the more I started to believe that I could achieve anything I wanted through discipline, hard work, and positive thinking. So here I am now, working out everyday, bringing myself closer and closer to achieving my dreams and all thanks to Frank. I’ll be traveling to the United States this summer to check out different colleges that can grant me a full athletic scholarship. I would recommend this book to athletes of all ages as it helps motivate you to push yourself harder and harder everyday."
- Shahin Saati, College Basketball Player
"After I finished reading this book I got answers to all my questions. It is the guide to success in the sports world, and I recommend every athlete to read it. It doesn't matter what sport you play or perform, the book is simply amazing. It is highly detailed and straight to the point. For me personally, I think this book should be called ‘The Encyclopedia of Sports.’ I learned a lot of important information from it, which helped me to make important decisions in my life. Thank you for sharing your experiences and knowledge."
- Eddy Brown, International Soccer Player
