Kobe Bryant Lover or Hater? New Book “The Kobe Code” Offers Insider’s Look into LA Laker Star
THE KOBE CODE: Eight Principles For Success -- An Insider's Look into NBA Player and Los Angeles Laker Kobe Bryant's Warrior Life & the Code He Lives By
By: Prismatic Publishing/Simplie Indie
“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 look at Kobe Bryant that is unique and portrays the NBA superstar in an entirely different light. 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 intriguing & fascinating book provides insight and perspective into how Kobe approaches his life, both on and off the court, and what seems to make him really tick. And, you’ll learn what separates Kobe from other NBA players and where his inner drive seems to be derived. You'll also find out things that are not commonly known like his workout schedule or his interests outside of basketball.
In THE KOBE CODE, you’ll also discover why Kobe considers himself a “talented overachiever”
“Excellence is not an Act, but a Habit.” This book came about because Mr. Mixon found Kobe to be one of the most intriguing and fascinating athletes of our time. He kept asking the question: what is Kobe doing that is separating him from the rest of the pack? What is going on both physically and mentally with this superstar that creates such excellence? And, Mr. Mixon wanted to know what really drove Kobe, where that hunger and intensity was derived. Lastly, he wanted to know if Kobe’s portrayal by the media was right or wrong.
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 highly interactive. There are 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?
