I rated 5 stars because I'm not her #1 fan, but I know I'd do anything for her. I'm a soccer player and I think that is great she helped us out through a book that is the second best way to tell a story. The first is in person, but it's better like this because she tells us her story with great detail and she wrote a book about the thing she loves to do and does for a living.
