Slightly boring

up to now, sometimes, it's like it's like hearing basketball games on the radio. you do not have the feeling that mj is talking about his life

the worst sports book ever

so much could be discussed instead it loses you in his family history before even getting to the main person we want to hear about

Mike - he is fantastic to learn about.

Which character – as performed by Bob Souer – was your favourite?


Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

One of many amazing stories of Mike's ultra-competitiveness in the book is the story of Mike and the Table Tennis - he plays table tennis for the first time against some of the Bulls players and got beaten badly. Mike got so angry, he went that day, played table tennis continuously until he beat every single player on the team, to the point no one wanted to play against him.

Any additional comments?

Mike was a basketball player in the 80s and 90s who had amazing skills - see his highlights on YouTube. This book, as far I am concerned has the most details of his life as far as I have read. And I have read - Hang Time, Rebound, The Jordan Rules, Michael Jordan and the World he made, For the Love of the Game, I can't Accept Not Trying, Driven from Within. I recommend Rebound (how Jordan tried baseball/came back to basketball -see his work ethic close up) and I can't accept not trying - how to achieve ur goals Jordan style.

This book will take u through Jordan's life from his childhood up until after he left the Wizards. It has amazing inspirational stories, interviews with many of his friends - and lots of details mentioning some of the books above. The author has presented it well, and it was an easy listen.

This book is for all people - learn about a man - who was always second guessed, where people would try to feed doubt in his mind, and learn how this drove him harder to perform and achieve.
