Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0965409848, Paperback)

It's not just a book of poetry, but a "Reader Friendly" Poetry Story...

The book's title, like so much of Sporty's poetry, is thought provoking and takes on new meaning after you've listened to Sporty recite... it reminds us that we begin dying the day we're born... the sooner we acknowledge that ("find out"), the sooner we can get focused on the joy of each day... past, present and future.

"Reader Friendly" describes the heart of the book, as explanations/descriptions of the settings that inspired each poem are provided. Among the three principles King lives by (called Sportyisms) to pace your reading pleasure is Sportyism #1:

Sooner or Later
You'll Catch UP
To What You've Received

The book closes with the Pledge Of A Lifetime - an affirmation said to the rhythm of the Pledge Of Allegiance, that reminds you to sign your life over to yourself:

I pledge a lifetime to myself
To enjoy this life to the fullest
And to my God
As a woman or man
One lifetime In the physical
For my gift
Will be laughter
For all.

So, is Sporty dying? No way! And neither is his flare for captivating audiences with his charismatic and introspective style of poetry, which he calls

SPOETRY (Sporty's Poetry Opens Emotions To Reach You).

King speaks on self-esteem, networking, commitment, and interpersonal skills necessary to round out people's business success and personal lives.
