Since his arrival to the NBA in 1998, Vince Carter of the Toronto Raptors has become one of the most popular players in the NBA. His high-flying dunks amazing aerial maneuvers have earned him the nicknames Vinsanity and Air Canada. So how did Vince Carter go from being a regular kid in Florida to a household name? In Choose Your Course, Vince Carter talks about the important choices he made on his way to becoming one of basketball's most exciting superstars.

Vince Carter - Choose Your Course

Choose Your Course is one of the latest books in the Positively For Kids series of autobiographies of professional athletes. In Choose Your Course, Vince Carter tells readers about the road he took and the choices he's made on his journey since childhood. From playing college basketball at North Carolina, to winning the NBA's Slam Dunk Contest, to his recovery from knee surgery in 2003. The book looks at some of the important life choices Vince made such as staying away from drugs, leaving North Carolina early to play in the NBA and going to his college graduation in 2001, just hours before a crucial NBA playoff game.

Choose Your Course - The Road To The NBA

Choose Your Course is a neat story with some great lessons. While you probably know about Vince Carter's highlight-dunks, and his struggles to turn the Raptors into a playoff powerhouse - you may not know much of the story of his childhood, the life struggles his brother went through or the work he now does for charity. Choose Your Course also has lots of great pictures of Vince Carter, when he was a kid. You'll laugh when you see the one of Vince wearing a pair of dorky glasses and a nerdy marching band uniform. Could that really be the same guy you've seen hanging on top of the rim in the NBA?
