SOULS OF STEEL: How To Build Character In Ourselves and Our Kids by Pat Williams

Pat Williams is an interesting individual. Not only is he senior vice president of the National Basketball Association's Orlando Magic, but he also has 14 adopted children from four nations plus four of his own. He is quite extraordinary.

In this book, he continues his efforts to help parents, grandparents, teachers, coaches, and youth leaders impact the attitudes of young people and help shape their lives in a positive way. Through real-life stories and real world principles he gives examples of ways to be positive role models for the next generation. The whole idea is to teach the next generation 8 principles.

Pat's research is valid and he is right on target. I would hope anyone who works with children and young adults would pick up a copy of this book and read it. Who knows who you may be able to impact in a positive way? What do you think?
