I am am very positive about this book in part because I lived through 3 of the 4 years Perry Wallace spent at Vanderbilt, and I saw him play at nearly all the home basketball games. I stayed at Vanderbilt for another 4 years and I followed the relationship between Vanderbilt and Perry and with Mr. So, I hope I have been sufficiently honest with you all.
The initial Strong Inside for adults is a beautiful and a bit disturbing book.
Its a book that will make you want to read it more than once in order to understand black and white interactions in the mid's at Vanderbilt and the Southeast. The Young Readers Edition of Strong Inside also does an excellent job of describing the terrible problems of an 18 year old black Vanderbilt student, Perry Wallace, playing ball in front of highly biased students at other colleges. It also describes the important ways in which Perry overcame the difficulties in both basketball and as a college student.
As shown on this page, the photos are worked well with and make kids and adults stare at their beauty. Its a beauty of basketball and a beauty of persons learning. Strong people, heroes where History I didn't know.
Strong people, heroes where you don't expect. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. A very strong read and this young reader's edition is a much quicker read than the original. Pick up this book. The book is not for the faint of heart, with graphic language and explicit examples of the racism and abuse that took place in our country. Those explicit experiences make this a perfect book for young people to read.
This young readers edition was adapted from the New York Times bestselling novel of the same name. I was in the process of reading the book as one of the classes I co-teach was working through speeches by Martin Luther King, Jr. A great example of a similar activity takes place in Chapter King spoke on a Friday and Carmichael spoke the next day. One called for nonviolence while the other one called for something more direct. That saturday night would see the start of the Nashville riots. Many in Nashville blamed Carmichael for leading the riots even though he was not even in the area.
Learning about the early life of Perry Wallace was really fascinating as a Nashville native. I loved learning about the history of Nashville, and how life was like in Nashville for a young Black man. I think students would enjoy reading about life as a young Black man in the south and compare it to now. What are the differences?
What are the similarities? How far have we actually come since then. The experience of Perry Wallace should be shared with as many people as possible, especially our youth. Maraniss writes in a way that would draw in reluctant readers. His writing is smooth and vivid.
The smoothness makes the book fly by, while the vividness make the encounters Wallace face that much more damning. Teachers, I know you will want to use this in your classroom once you have read this. It needs to be in your classroom, and students across the United States should be reading this book. With unflinching honesty, intelligence, compassion and humour, Adam takes you into the world of cricket that few outside of the Australian team have ever seen.
From his early struggles to establish himself, through to the giant achievements of the Australian test and one-day sides, True Colours offers an extraordinary window on Adam, on cricket's major stars and on the game itself.

I enjoyed the book with the personal aspect from Adam making it a page turner. I loved how he told his life in a story form that had lots of ups and downs and I'm the end coming out on top. He focuses a lot on his highs which include his first test ton and the first World Cup win and the lows that the team felt in losing the ashes and the long road to regain it in He missed out on some important events though like the series win in India or the World Cup final hundred in which were important landmarks in his career.
This was why I havent given it a 5. I recommend this book though to all the young cricket fans to highlight to them that it is a very long and hard road to the top but you should never give up. One person found this helpful. Such a brand ambassador of the game and humble creature, has been my the most favorite cricketer of all time and Sha remain so Gilly has been candid. People who grew up watching test matches that started at 4 a. See all 3 reviews.

One of the best cricket books I have read. The author did not bamboozle me with statistics but gave me an insight of what it was like to to be a Test Cricketer, relationships with other players, and the cost his family paid for his chosen profession.

The chapters that told oh his childhood in a sports mad family and the way his father dealt with misdemeanour's,his realization, when he visited Gallipoli on what it meant to be an Australian, I'm a kiwi of an Aussie father and many family members who served in the AIF in WW1 and a father who served on the Western Front with 1st NZEF. The heartfelt way he dealt with the birth of his first child.
I may not agree with his views on T20 cricket but the way he played the game should be a lesson to young cricketers everywhere. As an former umpire his views on accepting decisions impressed me. I would suggest many players should read this book. I am Gilchrist fan but the autobiography doesn't meet upto my expectation.
