Sports fans will love the spunky, colorful style of this book. Johnson's first-person narrative leads the reader from page to page of football action. Small type on the bottom of many pages reveals little-known Johnson facts. And the end matter offers Brad Johnson career stats and a Web site list.

Brad Johnson's story is part autobiography, part motivational lecture. Teamed with series author Greg Brown, Johnson uses personal stories to persuade readers to follow their passions and give life their best effort. This preachy style might turn off some kids but inspire others.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
