WoW is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine in which we share the titles we can't wait to release.
The Playbook: 52 rules to help you aim, shoot and score in this game called life by Kwame Alexander. 176 p. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, March 7, 2017. 9780544570979.
Publisher synopsis: You gotta know the rules to play the game. Ball is life. Take it to the hoop. Soar. What can we imagine for our lives? What if we were the star players, moving and grooving through the game of life? What if we had our own rules of the game to help us get what we want, what we aspire to, what will enrich our lives?
Illustrated with photographs by Thai Neave, The Playbook is intended to provide inspiration on the court of life. Each rule contains wisdom from inspiring athletes and role models such as Nelson Mandela, Serena Williams, LeBron James, Carli Lloyd, Steph Curry and Michelle Obama. Kwame Alexander also provides his own words of inspiration and uplift, as he shares his stories of overcoming obstacles and winning games.
