To start off this report , I will give you some information on Pat Conroy himself .

Author PhotoAs a fast , street-hardened 5-foot-10 point guard , Conroy was a fiery competitor who always believed he could play above his physical limitations and frequently did . Like his teammates , Conroy didn ‘t lose well . Unlike the others , however , he found a way to learn something from each defeat that would make him a better ballplayer . His steely resolve in the face of such a spirit-crushing season ultimately gave him the self-confidence to become one of America ‘s best-loved .

To conclude , Conroy ‘s book is an inspiration to others who think that losing is basically the end of the world , when in reality it can lead to more positive things in thier lives later on down the road .Reference
