From the Back Cover

UNCUT. UNCENSORED. UNCOMPROMISING. RODMAN SHOOTS FROM THE LIP.

ON THE NBA: 'Fifty percent of life in the NBA is sex. The other fifty percent is money.'

ON HAVING IT ALL: 'From the outside I had everything I could want. From the inside I had nothing but an empty soul and a gun in my lap.'

ON HIS GAME: 'I never want to score. Never. I want to rebound.'

ON HIS SEXUALITY: 'I grew up in a house of women...I thought when I was growing up that I was going to be gay.'

ON DATING: 'I go out with white women. This makes a lot of people unhappy, mostly black women.'

ON MADONNA: 'I'd thought she was looking for sex, but she was looking for someone to take care of her...She wanted to get pregnant really bad.'

ON MORTALITY: 'If I die young, everybody's going to say they saw it coming.'

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent if your into Rodmans style 14 Aug 2001
Format:Paperback
Most books I buy online are either rated well or I trust the authors work. This was a mix. It's Dennis Rodman and from the forst paragraph you read your thinking what have I bought here. It's totally unique - Dennis style but once some vulgar aspects and his unique point of view pass you take note of the depth and openness this book provides. anyone interested in basketball, the nba , rebounding, michael jordan, the bulls or being homeless, gay, madonna and mormons alike will find this an intriguing and compulsive read. I give it 4 stars as 5 is reserved for that 1 and only true read i'm still to find. Next to the last banner this is the best bball book i've read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Bad At All 24 Oct 1999
Format:Paperback
I didn't know much about Rodman before i read this, all I knew was that he was an unique character with his tatoos and hair colouring and was a basketball player going into movies. He does tell a good story of his career and life but I can not really relate to what he is talking about when he is describing all about basketball and the players etc, as I do not follow the game and I am not an American, but overall he tells alot about himself and is not afraid to be open and I see him as a very charismatic and unique person, he is the 'WORM'.

3.0 out of 5 stars As a Biography it's not bad at all. 23 July 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I have no clue who Dennis Rodman was before I read the book. I mean, I did, but not really. I'm not a fan of Basketball and I was only reading the book because my bother bought it. I must say I enjoyed it. It's well written and Dennis's life story has some interesting bits in it. I'm sure NBA fans will enjoy it even more.
