Great gift for the young people in your life 11. Dezember 2011
Von Bobby Newman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
At the NYC marathon, Jennie Finch was running for charity. She was given the last place number and starting time, and money for charity was raised for each person she passed. I joked with friends prior to running that in view of this I would allow her to pass me if I saw her, and puncuated that promise with "as if I could stop her!" (As predicted, she did pass me and finished before me).

There is no doubt that Jennie Finch is a world-class athlete. Her long lists of accomplishments on the softball field speak for themselves. In Throw Like a Girl, we get to read her background story and philosophy of life. Much hangs around softball, of course, but the lessons she aims at young women (and I would argue at young men as well) go beyond the playing field. There are frank discussions of peer pressure and body image and peer relationships and balance in one's life. In a world that seems to honor celebrity, regardless of the reason, this book stands in strong contrast. Readers are told in no uncertain terms that they need to think out the consequences of their actions in view of the long-term benefits and drawbacks (e.g., Jennie's decision to turn down offers from certain men's magazines and the reasons she did so). There are no-nonsense statements about what it takes to be successful, and readers are told quite bluntly that success comes from hard work, not from updating your facebook status. This is excellent reading for the young people in your life, particularly girls, as they struggle with the pressures of their age and deciding who they want to be. This has been a "go to" present for families with young girls/women this holiday season.

Throw like a girl 26. August 2011
Von LoMac - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is absolutely mandatory reading for any parent or young girl who wants to participate in any sport. This is not about learning the fundamentals of any certain sport. It's about learning the fundamentals of living and how athletics can contribute to a healthy and productive life. Too many people can't connect the two. I think Jennie Finch might just deserve another Gold Medal. Maybe we'll get a sequel called "The Cat and the Finch".

Excellent Book for Girls 12. März 2013
Von Jeri - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Thank you to Jennie Finch for taking time to share your story!! This was the first book my 13 year old has actually read cover to cover in months! And then reread. This is a must read for any preteen or teen whether or not they play softball. Those who do play softball, will be able to relate to her first hand experiences. This is an excellent motivator and helps girls understand that no one is perfect. It also teaches the value of a great work ethic. Jennie's success wasn't handed to her on a silver platter, she had to work hard and deal with disappointment like everyone else.

Throw like a girl 16. Oktober 2011
Von Thomas B. Craig - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
We have an 11 year old budding fast pitch softball grand-daughter. Jenny's book was terrific as she covers most all of the problems young athletes and their parents will have to deal with in school and sports. Natalie went to a two day Fast pitch, camp a month or so back, run by Lisa Fernandez and this is who Jenny described as the best female player in Women's Softball ever!

We thought the book was great and passed it on to our daughter and granddaughter to read. It covers all the bases and Jenny is a wonderful inspiration and model for young girls to follow

Very inspirational! 10. Februar 2014
Von HPRMLC - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
My daughters and I love this book. It is very well written and gives girls that boost of confidence. We read a chapter at a time out loud, it shows them that hard work does pay off even when people tell you that you will amount to nothing, you keep on trying!
