That's Great Advice
Advice from Pro Athletes for Kids, Written by a Kid
That's Great Advice features interviews and information from over 60 professional athletes including: Kevin Durant (NBA), Chipper Jones (MLB), Cole Hamels (MLB), Nastia Liukin (Olympics), Kyle Busch (NASCAR), Steven Jackson (NFL), Haloti Ngata (NFL), Dustin Brown (NHL), Usain Bolt (Olympian), Brittany Lincicome (LPGA), and Mark Munoz (UFC).
The book was written by Matthew Pearlman, a 13 year old reporter from St. Louis, MO. He is the founder of TeensOnSports.com. Matthew has conducted over 500 athlete interviews and has been a credentialed media person at several major sporting events.
The book is more than just a sports book. The advice from athletes provides important information for being successful in sports and in life. The chapters each focus on a different life lesson: perseverance, hard work & positive attitude, honesty & integrity, leadership & teamwork, character/role model, anti-bullying, giving back, and following your dream.
I am a 13 year old reporter and author from St. Louis, MO. I started interviewing pro athletes when I was 11 years old for my website - TeensOnSports.com. I currently have interviewed over 500 athletes. The athletes taught me a great deal about sports but more importantly about life. I turned these stories into my first book - That's Great Advice - Advice from Pro Athletes for Kids, Written by a Kid.
I love playing sports, tutoring younger kids, and also helping to give back to the community. This past year I planned and led two anti-bullying assemblies at school with MMA fighter Tyron Woodley and Boxer Ryan Coyne. I am already working on my second book.
