Waitzkin delivers when talking about his realtionship with his son and cleverly makes examples of sports persons and their parents.
I watched the film first (Innocent Moves) which was an amazing 2 hour experience which I feel made the book more enjoyable than if i hadn't have seen the film.
It is well woth getting a copy of and can teach you some important issues on life and how people can get carried away with success.
I say take a look!
