If I was going to rate Big Papi: My Story of Big Dreams and Big Hits out of five stars, I would give it four stars. I made this choice for a few specific reasons. Firstly, it was about my favorite sport and favorite player. I love to watch and play baseball, and I like anything related to it. I really look up to David Ortiz on and off the field, because he is not only a great player, but a great person. Another reason that I gave the book four stars, is that it showed the many struggles that come with achieving your goals, and that you should always persevere. He didn't let any of the setbacks knock him down, he stood strong. The only reason why the book did not get five stars, is that it was from 2007. All of the information was correct, but it did not depict any of his later accomplishments, which I would have loved to read about.
