Background Information

Tour de You is an engaging, entertaining book with the ebb, and flow of a competitive cycling event. The intangibles of competition are the many variables that have little or nothing to do with individual talent. Crashes, mechanical mishaps, and slick road conditions are some of the variables that cannot be controlled in professional bicycle racing.

The young athlete will love the dynamic, colorful abstract graphic designs that compliment the prose of Tour de You. A cool poem with "edge" is how this book was described by one reviewer. This is a unique book that is perfect for any competitive athlete who is constantly striving for perfection. The notion of perfection, for a young person, is often a sought after ideal in the classroom, and on the playing field. Tour de You is a book with few words, yet with deep, powerful lessons. Lessons that are hidden within the simple ideas presented in a dynamic format.

Self-esteem is a constant for an athlete to have a healthy perception of self. An athlete's identity is often attached to his or her sport, and if one does not have a strong sense of self-esteem, then losing a game may feel like a miserable failure. In contrast, an athlete with a strong sense of self-esteem will be more resilient, and able to separate athletic performance from whether they are cool, popular, or succesful. Tour de You, celebrates the athlete who is able to rise, and fall from obstacles, and still feel like he or she is valued.
