Review:

In a sports world of inflated salaries and even more inflated egos, Grant Hill is a refreshingly modest voice for change. Young players especially will enjoy this book about what it was like to grow up as the son of a pro football great and how Grant himself became a star basketball player at Duke and then Rookie of the Year in the NBA.

About the Author:

Dave Anderson has been a sportswriter for the New York Times since 1966 and one of its "Sports of the Times" columnists since 1971. He was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 1981 for distinguished commentary. Anderson has written twenty-one books and more than three hundred fifty magazine articles. He grew up in Brooklyn, New York, and now lives in Tenafly, New Jersey, with his wife, Maureen. They have four grown children: Stephen, Mark, Mary Jo, and Jean Marie.

Book Description Little, Brown Company, United States, 1997. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. In today s world of professional sports, where players have egos as inflated as their paychecks, Grant Hill is a unique figure. An All-Star player without the attitude, Grant is changing the look of pro sports. And in this inspiring book, he explains why it s time for all of us to change the game. The son of two highly successful, goal-oriented parents, Grant is the rare athlete who knows that victory is not always about the final score, that taunting is not the same as winning, and that role models can only lead by example. In this intimate look at his childhood, his career, and the people he has met along the way, Grant offers a refreshing viewpoint for today s young people. Change the Game gives us rare insights into a young man growing up talented, sensitive, and smart. Here are scenes from both Grant s sporting life as a young basketball player and his personal life as a shy, quiet teenager who only wanted to fit in. Here are stories of talented athletes undone by drugs; of less talented athletes who channeled their energies to other arenas; and of important adult figures in Grant s life. Whether addressing the topic of fame ( It is a privilege. It is not a right.And with it comes a serious obligation. ) or bigotry ( Maybe I can even help wash out some of those hard lines that have been drawn between the races. ), Grant Hill speaks with the same eloquence and quiet power with which he plays the game.
