From Yankee shortshop Derek Jeter comes "The Life You Imagine", an inspiring, practical book about how you can figure out what your goals are and then go about achieving them. Derek, though only 26-years-old, is an integral part of the World Champion Yankees, who have won four World Series in five years. After being named Rookie of the Year four years ago, Derek has continued to work hard to build his skills and maximize his natural talent. Known for his strong work ethic, teamwork, enthusiasm and respect for authority, Derek is a role model for kids everywhere. And with his strong sense of style and charisma, he has become one of the most recognizable athletes in any sport, with endorsement deals with Nike and other companies and even his own cereal, Jeter Flakes.
Derek has always had a strong relationship with his family, who taught him that with hard work he could accomplish anything. "The Life You Imagine" uses stories from his own life growing up and his years with the Yankees to show how you can figure out what your goals are, and then how to go about achieving them. The book features black and white photos throughout and photo inserts, which come from Derek's family photo album and includes things like the contracts he drew up with his parents every year promising good grades and staying out of trouble.
