By looking at major influences and pivotal events in Bryant's life, this straightforward biography tells how the fast-rising star set his heart on playing pro basketball early in life and worked to reach his goals. The author provides insight into some of the emotional challenges Bryant faced, for example, in moving back to the U.S. from Italy and in being relegated to the bench early in his NBA career. Ramon de Ocampo's matter-of-fact reading is well paced and balanced, conveying admiration without sounding worshipful. He uses pitch and rhythm well, making key moments in basketball games come alive. Young fans of Bryant, the Lakers, and hoops should find this listening experience informational and inspirational.
