This isn't just a book about an athlete achieving his goals. It's about the worst things Tyson experienced, so younger athletes can learn from him. It's about what happens when athletes are so focused on their sports that they don't care about anything else in life and the repercussions of that mind-set. Hoop Dreams Fulfilled touches on deep, intense sports psychology and the weight and pressure many athletes feel but are afraid to talk about. Tyson recaps his failures in excruciating detail so others can learn from them.
