Description - Rising Above by Gregory Zuckerman

Team USA goalkeeper Tim Howard was diagnosed with Tourette syndrome in sixth grade. He went on to become a national treasure after single-handedly keeping America competitive in the 2014 World Cup. Stephen Curry was told he was too small, too weak, and too slow to even play for a major college team. He outworked everyone to become MVP of the National Basketball Association. Jim Abbott was born without his right hand, yet he refused to be defined by what he lacked. He went on to pitch a no-hitter in the Major Leagues.

Athlete after athlete in this book found discipline, hope, and inspiration on the playing field, rising above their circumstances. Filled with firsthand accounts from superstars who exemplify the idea of enduring at all costs, Rising Above will serve as a source of inspiration and entertainment for kids and sports fans of all ages.
