How to Be Like Jackie Robinson by Pat Williams

Book Description

Long before the blockbuster movie "42" was conceived, Pat Williams told the story of the courage, commitment and character of Jackie Robinson. Pat Williams is a master storyteller. Through deeply inspiring examples using Jackie's own words and actions, "How to Be Like Jackie Robinson" proves that, not only is he one of our greatest heroes, but he is also one of our greatest teachers. Unlike most biographies on Jackie Robinson, this book profiles his amazing life and offers valuable lessons drawn from his experiences that directly apply to practical, everyday improvement and personal success. "How to Be Like Jackie Robinson" is one of the ten dynamic books in the "How to Be Like" character biography series, which draws out important lessons from the life of each subject. When Jackie Robinson stepped onto Ebbets Field on April 15th, 1947, he broke the color line -- the first African-American ever to play baseball in the major leagues. Robinson was not only a baseball hero, but also an amazing agent for social change who played an invaluable role in the civil rights movement. On and off the field, Robinson was a man of great talent, character and courage--a true hero and great national treasure. In this book based on more than 1,000 interviews, Pat Williams tackles one of the most influential people in recent history. Fans will discover not only how Jackie Robinson became one of the most amazing athletes in baseball, but just as importantly, how they can learn from many of his life choices and experiences.
