Written by two former college athletes, Your Brain Is a Muscle Too is an essential guide to success in the classroom and on the play field for any student athlete.
Taking readers through all the steps toward success for student athletes -- from obtaining athletic scholarships to finding the right sports agent -- Your Brain Is a Muscle Too should be mandatory reading for every student athlete. Insightful tips range from how to adapt to the intensity of the college environment to how to most effectively study for exams and how to avoid the pressures of drugs and alcohol. While this book is invaluable for all students, it is the first book that addresses the specific concerns of African -Americans in a college setting.
Your Brain Is a Muscle Too offers guidance and heightens awareness in areas such as academics, interpersonal relations, money matters, time management, and the social transition from high school to college. It includes colorful anecdotes and candid advice, including contributions from Magic Johnson, Jimmy Jackson, and Kenny Smith.

Originally self-published as The Sport of Learning in 1995, this book focuses on African American male student athletes, especially those recruited to play football and basketball. In this significantly revised and updated version, the authors present a sequence of events from high school through the college years, offering practical advice on which college to choose, how to balance academics and athletics, how to handle relationships, and how to cope with the media. The self-contained chapters, consisting of worksheets, self-tests, and sample scenarios, enable the reader to concentrate on one topic of interest at a time. While many of the topics discussed are addressed from the perspective of the college student athlete, male high school students can apply some of these principles and lessons as well. Fudzie earned a bachelor's degree in business administration while on a football scholarship, and Hayes works as a high school teacher and counselor for the Los Angeles school district. Recommended for public libraries serving a black student male population. Leroy Hommerding, Fort Myers Beach Lib. Dist., FL
