what's so appealing about Hamm like a role model

Amazon Review:
Mia Hamm, star from the U.S. National Team, Olympic Gold Medalist, World Cup champion, and five-time National Player of the season, has a simple undertake her talents which explains her success: "Many people say I'm the very best women's soccer player on the planet. I don't think so. And because of that, someday I simply may be." That's what's so appealing about Hamm like a role model, and it is the inspirational message at the heart of her autobiography. But Goal is only in part about herself--"There is no me in Mia," she suggests. Sure, she tells the story of the Army brat who rose to international stardom, but her book is really a pep talk and soccer instructional aimed at the hearts from the countless young women looking to fill her enormous cleats. Mixing anecdote and opinion--she insists Kristine Lilly is the greatest player on the planet, period--with lots of solid coaching and practical advice, Hamm breaks the game into its essential skill components (trapping, passing, dribbling, shooting, heading, goaltending) after which addresses both the mental and physical facets of the sport in prose that talks up--not down--to her target readers. Photos (some to teach, some clearly to wow), diagrams (x's and o's of drills and plays), and tips from her teammates (Michelle Akers says, "There is a distinction between a finisher and shooter.... Players who score tons of goals are the type who are able to not just shoot but finish with deadly accuracy") help her cover the field, and Hamm scores additional points with similar contagious spirit she demonstrates each time she wears her uniform. --Jeff Silverman --This text describes an out of print or unavailable edition of the title.
