Heart of A Lion- The Life, Death And Legacy Of Hank GathersHeart of a Lion cronicles the life, death and legacy of Hank Gathers who died 20 years ago at age 24.

Hank was a terrific, collegiate basketball player headed for the NBA when he collapsed and died on the court during a game.

Hank was born in the crime and drug infested projects of North Plilly from which noone escaped.At age 10 he made a commitment to get himself and his family out of the "Ruins".Basketball was the tool he would use to do so.Hank developed an incredible work ethic and mental attitude that shielded him from those who told him repeatedly, he couldn't do this or couldn't do that.Nothing came easy to Hank.

Hank was always in the middle of the action, especially on the court.The story is so compelling and the book so well written, the reader can hear and feel the roar of the crowd as Hank performs his majic.Also, the reader feels the saddness and stunned silence when the unthinkable happens.

This book is worth reading.It is well researched and written.It is an easy, good read at any time.With March Madness upcoming, it makes a timely gift.
