ABOUT THE BOOK
The Curveball by Colby Sharma is a thorough and thought-provoking page-turner. This book takes a seeker on a journey of self-discovery, not only by providing helpful strategies that encourages curiosity and introspection, but by also taking reader's hand and walking step by step through the journey of the main character. It is an extremely engaging book which gives reader a hope that there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. The narrative brings out an interesting parallel between a game of baseball and the adversity one faces in their lives. Adversity is part of life that can make or break you, the choice is yours. The protagonist faces many adversities but instead of succumbing to that he has discovered his true self. It is a motivational read which guides you towards the solution that inspires you to take up challenges in life. The book talks about many life lessons that people have forgotten and need to be reminded.
Author also manifests the importance of having a coach (in this book it's Spooky) in life who neither teaches you nor helps you but reminds you of an ability you already possess that can make your life worth living for. One of the best lesson he describes from game of baseball that is my personal favorite is-
"Baseball is life. Its full of curveballs. Full of challenges. Every pitch is adversity. Everyone is threat. An obstacle. But look all of these adversities an an opportunity".
