Klay Thompson: The Incredible Story of One of Basketball's Sharpest Shooters by Clayton Geoffreys BOOK REVIEW

Klay Thompson: The Incredible Story of One of Basketball's Sharpest ShootersKlay Thompson: The Incredible Story of One of Basketball's Sharpest Shooters
by Clayton Geoffreys

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The story of NBA basketball player Klay Thompson is a valuable read, not because he had to over come hardship or tragedy to get where he is today, but because of the quiet and calm manner in which he has learned and processed the rules and become the success he is today.

Klay Thompson gives us the inspirational story of a player who listened to his father, learned his lessons well and has his head on straight. He is one that is learning, from his parents, how to budget and live well within his means, setting him up for a future long after basketball is gone. So many players become bankrupt when their careers are over because they never learned the basic lessons of saving money and budgeting.

Klay is also on that you will not find getting into trouble, there is one recorded incident in college and that made such an impact on Klay that he has kept his nose clean and lived an incredibly tame life for a basketball player.

For these reasons alone Klay is a wonderful inspiration and role model for younger children. This is a great book for adults and children to read to get to know more about Klay, where he came from and what he is about.
