about this item

Play For Something provides student athletes with the inspiration, strategies, and know-how to succeed in the classroom and beyond. Written by a Division 1 basketball player who graduated as the valedictorian of his class with a 4.0 GPA, this book covers everything from study strategies to productivity theory, from memory mastery to effective writing strategies, and from homesickness to networking. The book contains insightful stories from some of the world's leading athletes and business experts, including Olympians, Academic All-Americans, and prominent business leaders. A must-read for student athletes, the first part of the book deals with the motivation and inspiration student athletes often miss when it comes to academics and a career beyond athletics. It helps student athletes identify their passion and learn from the success stories of others. The second part of the book is devoted to the systems and knowledge that allow students to excel, including character building, life balance, networking, support system, and personal branding. The third part of the book provides the practical tips and tricks the author used to maintain a 4.0 GPA through four years of college, offering exceptional techniques to help improve memory, speed-reading, college writing, research, and citation skills.
