Publishers Description
Dallas Mavericks’ head coach Avery Johnson, one of today’s most electrifying, dynamic leaders, shares his keys to success and motivation through strength, faith, and passion.

Community Description
Standing at just 5' 11", Avery Johnson never looked like an NBA player. But in his 16 years (1988-2004) in the league, the wiry point guard known as the Little General earned a stellar reputation for playmaking and clutch shooting. Then, as the Dallas Mavericks coach, he has raised his game even higher, earning the Coach of the Year Award in 2006, his rookie season, and recording 150 wins faster than any coach in history. In Aspire Higher, he offers a combination game plan and pep talk for achieving your personal goals, illustrating his points with memorable stories from his own life.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
The Writer's Point  Dec 2, 2009
Bernard Cornwell is one of those rare writers who allows you to see history by tossing you into whatever era he writes about. In this instance it's The Archers Tale with young Thomas of Hookton in the 14th century. Thomas is the archer and he's very good at what he does with his handmade black bow.
But then Cornwell is very good at getting the reader to know Thomas, his strong points, his faults and failings, and his drive that takes him searching for the Holy Grail, with a revenge quest tossed in as well.
Cornwell's dialogue is convincing as are his settings and characters that run the gamut of the likeable to the truly psychotic, with everyone else in between.
Another good one for the book pile.A good adventure yarn.
Good Military History, Poor Medieval History  Nov 2, 2009
Bernard Cornwell novels are my guilty pleasure. He gives a very good soldiers-eye view of battle. Though no one would confuse him with a master of English prose, he writes good fast-moving narrative. His instincts as to which of the secondary sources to trust are usually sound. He talks about tactics, equipment, logistics, and policy intelligently; he always walks the battlefields himself where they still exist. All of the above make this this a good (and fun) popular introduction to the Crecy campaign of the Hundred Years War.

On the other hand, his characters are pretty flat and his ubiquitous anti-Christian bias is annoying. This is a very serious flaw in books like this where he is trying to write medieval characters despite deep ignorance and antipathy to their faith.

His Richard Sharpe series following the armies of Wellington through the Penninsular War is much better.
good  Oct 18, 2009
Cornwell is a great historical fiction writer and this is just another fine example of his fine well written work. While this is not my favorite series, this is a very good one
Is this for adolescent boys?  Aug 11, 2009
After trying to read Ken Follet's claptrap tome "Pillars of the Earth", I was steered to this book by an this site reviewer. Unfortunately, it's not much better. I can't understand why these books get such rave reviews. The characters are flat, stereotypical, and predictable. The writing is at a 7th or 8th grade level. The plot is stale and arbitrary. But ooh! It's violent and there's lots of rape and battles, so it must be interesting. Yawn.

For the record, I gave up on page 43, by which time the recently-introduced villain Sir Simon had been described as replying "sourly" FIVE times in as many pages. Can't these authors afford editors?

Will The Prince arrive in time to rescue the damsel...find out in book 2 or 3 or 4..,  May 20, 2009
Do stories set in days of yore bore you to tears? Does the use of 14th century language smack of bad Shakespeare as interpreted by your community theater? Do damsels in distress, knights on white horses and Prince Charmings make you want to puke?'ll find some of that stuff in The Archer's Tale but you'll also find that it's easily overlooked due to a solid plot line, credible characters and a fair amount sword clanging action. It's still a story of damsels and knights, good and evil, wrong doing and revenge but that's okay. In my book, suffering some clichéd corniness is a small price to pay for a decent story.

The story follows the travails of a would-be Prince Charming as he tries to make good on a promise he made to his dying father. The path he takes is not straight and he finds himself at odds with himself and with others along the way. Some of the people you think are good turn out to be otherwise and some you think are bad may not necessarily be.

The biggest negative - and what cost the book half a star - is that it becomes clear at about the ½ way mark that there is no way the author is going to be able to wrap up all outstanding business by the end of the book. And, as suspected, by the time you finish you will have realized that there is enough yet to do to fill a number of follow-up books. Kind of a bummer because I'm not a big fan of book series. If you are, then no worries...plenty going on to merit reading more.

This book ain't gonna tickle your gray matter any. It's a fine good vs. evil escapism that will entertain fans of knights and princesses and dragons and nobleman and sacking of villages and/or fans of good solid stories.
