Have you ever wondered what it takes to make a legandary sports star? Talent? Determination? Teamwork? You're right, but it takes more than that.

Synopsis:

Just in time for the World Cup, the author/illustrator of "What Presidents Are Made Of" shows some of the best-known athletes in history as they've never been seen before. Full color.
