Reviews for Andrew Luck

Booklist Reviews 2014 March #1
Good sports biographies are a must for any school or public library, and these titles in the Robbie Reader: Contemporary Biography series satisfy this need. Each book begins with a dramatic scene from the athlete's pro career, which ensures further reading. The large, accessible text continues with a brief look at each player's childhood and high-school play before launching into their award-winning sports careers. Andrew Luck reveals how this self-proclaimed "nerd" chose an education at Stanford University over football powerhouse universities before becoming a professional quarterback. Complemented by color photos of the players in action, the biographies emphasize not only the athletes' accolades on the field but also their community service off the field. A chronology, glossary, career statistics, and other back matter will further gratify sports enthusiasts. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
