Those assistants had families and their careers in mind when they took the new jobs. They were like a pack of adolescent wolves readying themselves for the recruiting hunt. It is about the Gronkowski family, and their amazing story of athletic success. An example of this is when Rob was fourteen years old; his mom had instructed him to pull up his sweatpants because he looked sloppy. Their father, Gordy, even played college football for Syracuse.

This book talks about how his sons achieved that success. Partly that game includes hard work and p My sister gave me Growing up Gronk for Christmas for some reason. It's surprisingly mature, as in, not written in dumbed-down language for sixth graders. Beyond being naturally gifted athletes Gordy appears to be a somewhat obsessed workout junkie and had his five sons competing with each other in the basement using a workout regime created by Gordy himself. An example of this was when Chris Gronkowski at fourteen years old was having trouble becoming inspired to work-out.

The Gronkowski family is a legitimate miracle. My favorite part was when Rob broke a watermelon over his head and the press captured a photo of him but never published it because they couldn't find a story for it. Rob Gronkowski was definitely the funniest of the five brothers. Best of luck with that, Cardinal fans! Anyway I read it in one hungover day at my friends' apartment with the help of a good amount of skimming. Next: Part 2 — How They Did. They are from Buffalo, New York.

Growing Up Gronk takes readers behind the scenes to tell the Gronkowski's incredible story, revealing how they were raised, how they were motivated, how they trained, how they played, even how their mother kept them fed. Abandoning them is not in any way productive for the addict, their family, or society. Each was motivated and inspired by his brothers. My final reason I chose to recommend this book to all ages is because it shows how competitive the brothers all were and how that helped them to push themselves to get better and stronger. This book is a good read for anyone who has a passion for sports.

This book would be a great read for all males ages 10 and up who enjoy the sport of football, and I don't believe anybody else would really get as much enjoyment out of this book. That would piss off both you and a lot of people and lose trust in that company. I know Gordy and Diane are no longer married but the book would have been so much more well rounded had we got to hear Diane's perspective. Anyway I read it in one hungover day at my friends' apartment with the help of a good amount of skimming. Growing Up Gronk reveals the secrets to the Gronkowskis' astonishing collective success while opening the door to a lively, entertaining, one-of-a-kind household.
