Venus Williams is spreading the word about the benefits of getting off your butt and on the court in a new book.
Venus knows better than anyone that playing a sport when you’re young can lead to great success later in life. Just look at what she and her sister Serena have managed to achieve with nothing more than determination and a tennis racquet!
In her new book, Come to Win, Venus is sharing all the lessons she’s learned while playing her sport. And she’s gotten former athletes, such as Denzel Washington, Soledad O’Brien, Bill Clinton and Vera Wang to pitch in on some pages.
In all, Venus rounded up 46 contributors for the project, but it’s not clear whether Serena is one of them. Find out how competitive sports put them all on the right path to successful careers when Come to Win hits store on June 29.
Venus is also taking some time away from the tennis court to promote Come to Win on a book tour, starting July 6 in New York. For more information, visit her official website.
