IN SPITE OF THE ODDS by Richie Contartesi
The background for IN SPITE OF THE ODDS is sports, a little baseball is mentioned in the beginning, the essence of the book by Speaker, Author and Entrepreneur Richie Contartesi is endurance despite how you may feel.
In a nutshell the book is about how Mr. Contartesi was able to obtain a position on a college football team despite the opinions of those in authority; but that is the obvious plot. A parent reading this book will quickly discover the importance of teaching children the importance of keeping commitments. A person going through difficult times can identify with the rejection the author experienced.
Did I mention that he was playing football 5 7 155 pounds?
Success is not about luck, it requires hardwork, persevarance and determination. I personally believe, and this book confirms it, rejection is part of the journey. The hidden theme of this book is continuing education no matter what your goal is.
IN SPITE OF THE ODDS is highly motivational. I would definitely recommend this book to young men and women who have dreams of success.
