Nov. 29, 2010 - PRLog -- SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- Strength & Honor. Not just words from the movie Gladiator, starring Russell Crowe, but a code that NBA superstar and Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant seems to live by. He even signs fan letters with this mantra. That's because Kobe embodies everything that makes a real warrior.

“Veni. Vedi. Vici.” That phrase is Latin for “I came, I saw, I conquered.” More words the warrior Kobe follows. These phrases are insights into Kobe’s true nature, the philosophy that guides him, and the warrior’s path he walks each day of his life. This the essence of the real Kobe Bryant.

In this spirit, sportswriter and author Pat Mixon has written an unauthorized biography on Kobe Bryant. This exciting new book provides a look at Kobe’s warrior life and the Principles he seems to live by. But THE KOBE CODE takes a unique spin on the traditional biography. Rather than simply recap the history of Kobe, this inspiring & practical guide provides insight and perspective into how Kobe approaches his life, both on and off the court, and what makes him really tick. Additionally, by highlighting Eight Principles For Success pulled from various stages or situations in Kobe’s life, this book allows the reader to apply some of these practices to their own life. You’ll also discover why Kobe considers himself a “talented overachiever” as well as feeling like “an outcast” all his life.  And, once and for all, you'll understand why Kobe has been so incredibly misunderstood. THE KOBE CODE will change your perception of this NBA superstar.

Using life lessons from Kobe’s example, THE KOBE CODE will teach you how to increase your confidence, overcome your daily challenges, live with passion and purpose, and realize your goals. THE KOBE CODE can teach you how to walk the walk of the warrior life. It’s a proven road map that you can use to achieve any goal you desire. This book is almost a spiritual guidebook, a warrior's manual, or possibly even a modern day "The Art of War" handbook. And, like Kobe, this book is on the leading edge and interactive. You’ll have YouTube™ video links and website URL’s to read articles from Kobe’s past.

So, are you ready to adopt a gladiator mentality and step inside the arena?

The book is available worldwide in Print or e-Book at:,, Amazon’s Kindle, Barnes & Noble (Nook), Apple’s iBookstore for iPad & iPhone, (multi-format e-readers), and other fine bookstores & online retailers.
