My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

While Get in the Game is listed as a self-help/business on the cover, it reads like a mini-autobiography of Cal Ripken, Jr.  Ripken, with the assistance of Donald T. Phillips, writes about eight elements that he attributed in not only making a difference in his legendary baseball career but also his successful transition to business.  Within each of the eight chapters detailing each element, Ripken shares stories and situations from his early life and baseball career that are examples of the featured element.  At the end of the book, Ripken his a brief overview of his post-baseball life and how the eight elements have influenced his transition into business.  At less than 300 pages, the book reads quick but is very thought provoking.
