Bracing ourselves for the GAME OF LIFE

Coffee table books usually dazzle us with stunning photographs and larger-than-life images.  This one does all that, as it is inspires as well.

 Game of Life Passion, Drive & Heart of an MVP, encapsulates PLDT Chairman Manuel V. Pangilinan’s life, beliefs and passions which are business basketball and philanthropy, in excerpts and images.  It also includes quotes from famous NBA players who received the Most Valuable Player (MVP) award, and definitions of related basketball terminologies.

 Published by the PLDT Smart Foundation (PSF) as a gift for MVP’s birthday, Game of Life captures the heart and mind with its moving quotes and compelling photographs.

 According to MVP, “The journey may be long. Our climb may be steep.  Some will say we can’t do it – that it is too hard, too risky.  But it has always been our way to reject ‘can’t-do’ claims – to choose instead to stretch the boundaries of the possible through hard work, determination, and an innovative spirit.”

 Michael Jordan, NBA MVP of the 90’s, couldn’t agree more, “I have missed more than 9,000 shots in my career.  I have lost almost 300 games.  On 26 occasions I have been entrusted to take the game winning shot… and missed.  And I have failed over and over and over again in my life.  And that is why… I succeed.”

 The book presents aspects of MVP’s life as he takes the roles of businessman, philanthropist, sports advocate and a simple man who has learned the important lessons of life through determination and hard work.  “We hope that this book will inspire us to bring out the MVP in each of us so that we can all win together as a team,” said PSF President Ma. Esther O. Santos.
