Have you ever wondered what it takes to make a legandary sports star? Talent? Determination? Teamwork? You're right, but it takes more than that. Using everyday items like toy airplanes, Coke bottles, and pencil sharpeners, and with fun and fascinating tales of each player's life -- on and off the field -- Hanoch Piven shows us what our favorite pro-athletes of the past and present are really made of.

There’s a paragraph on each of twenty-three athletes, telling how that athlete has a quality that athletes need, such as dependability or initiative, illustrated with a collage portrait of the athlete, using items that reflect that athlete’s qualities.
