Go For The Goal

This is an inspiring book, writen by one of the most famous women athletes of today. Mia Hamm wrote this book intending to help out young soccer players and give them great advice. She also including some of her teammates from the U.S. National Soccer Team, including Kristine Lilly, Michelle Akers and Tisha Venturini. This book gives you tips on drills to do during practice and also some tips on how to play with heart and dedication. This is a very easy to read book. She wrote it knowing that younger children would read it. In the back of the book there is a glossary of terminology used throughout the book the reader may not know. Myself growing up I've played soccer since I can remember. This book has helped me a lot throughout the process of organizing an all-girls' soccer team at my school. I would greatly encourage any girl (or boy) who just started playing soccer or who is a veteran of the game to pick up a copy of this book and read it!

The Most Inspiring book for teenage girls

This book was the most inspiring book I have ever read. It gives you a mind set for when your on the field your ON the field. And when you're ready to get on there you've got to have your game face on. Me, being an ODP player and my soccer team won the state cup last year and our team was less than a year old, then went to regionals and were undefeated, this book taught me a lot on how to be a better teammate. It taught me to get on that field and practice sprints even with my speed that i've been gifted with because people will catch up, you must take risks to be and winner.

Mia Hamm-SoccerPlayer/Writer

Mia Hamm's book, "Goal For The Goal," is the best book I have read. It helps all soccer players improve their game, by showing training drills and it has great advice that motivates players. Mia Hamm and the rest of the Women's National team are my role models. Mia Hamm, to me wrote this book perfectly, and anyone who wants to play soccer or plays soccer already should read this book. It will inspire you to do so much more than you already can do.

I really loved this book and I will work to be a pro.

She gives you a good idea on the game and how to win. She has been through some tough times and she is now telling you how you can survive those hard times. I am taking her advise and training to help me become a better soccer player, because my dream in life is to be a professional soccer player. I had this dream... almost half of my life. I want to thank Mia for writting this book and for helping me learn the best part of soccer is the emotions.

I personally think it's an amazing book and if you're a huge Mia Hamm fan like I am you'll love it. She covers some of the most important things about the game. It is really inspirational. Just by reading all the tips and techniques in the book I've improved my game. I hope it does the same for you. I encourage you to buy Go For The Goal because it's one of the best soccer books. Mia Hamm did an excellent job.
