my first book review in my blog ! :) i'll post my old reviews on goodreads here as well later on ;)
so i just finished reading Training Camp: What the Best Do Better Than Everyone Else by Jon Gordon. I borrowed the translated version of this book and it was a very motivating story.
the book tells a story about Martin Jones, a sportsman who play rugby - but unfortunately suffers leg injury after his amazing goal at a game. this leg injury might cause him to be kicked out of the training camp; and he also won't get any money to pay for her mother's operation. during his injury, he met a very special coach who shares eleven life-changing lessons that keep Martin's dream alive-and might even make him the best of the best. even though the story is about a sportsman, the lessons taught can be applied to everyone.
for me, the book is very motivating and has a lot of amazing moral points. by reading this book, i have also learned along with Martin about being the best; and what it takes to become the best. there is no special recipe for being the best. people who become the best now are not born that way; they work hard and fight through their fears and difficulties. i have to say that the only thing that's not really good about this book is the plot. for me, i think the plot is very flat and not dramatic enough. everything seems to be going really fast, and problems past by without details - which make things seems so easy for Martin. the story could be better, but however, it still has its' own good points. :)
