From the Back Cover:

Praise for Cal Ripken:

"As parents of kids who love sports, Janet and I know that there are many factors that contribute to children having a positive sports experience. Cal Ripken offers a unique perspective on the issues surrounding youth sports today and this book provides great tips and advice for all parents with kids who have a passion for any sport."
—Hockey legend and sports parent Wayne Gretzky

"At no other time in the history of youth sports is a book about parenting more valuable. It’s uncanny how Cal is able to bring his experience at the highest level of sports down to the grassroots in this book. This is because he is a parent who knows the importance of all of us keeping things in perspective...in reality he really cares."
—Fred Engh , founder and President , The National Alliance for Youth Sports

"I couldn’t think of anyone more qualified to teach kids, parents and coaches than Cal."
-Alex Rodriguez, 2003 American League Most Valuable Player

"In a world where genuinely admirable men and women are in short supply, Cal Ripken, Jr. is clearly and indisputably one of them..."
Washington Post Book World
