Book Description

During the 1990s Michael Jordan was the most recognisable athlete on the planet. His number 23 jersey was worn by millions of fans around the world and his Air Jordan brand shoes helped to make him the richest sportsman of the decade.

He could never have imagined this success as a youngster when he was cut from his high school basketball team. Instead of giving up he worked harder to eventually prove his coaches wrong and earn a scholarship at the University of North Carolina. The game winning shot he hit in the 1982 NCAA finals launched him as an NBA prospect and future superstar.

He was picked in the 1984 NBA draft by the Chicago Bulls and played for them for nine years, winning three championships and seven scoring titles. He retired from basketball in 1993 after the death of his father and attempted a career as a professional baseball player. After limited success he returned to basketball in 1995 and won three more titles with the Bulls between 1996 and 1998. He retired for the second time in 1999 with ten scoring titles and five most valuable player (MVP) awards.

Jordan maintained an interest in basketball as a manager for the struggling Washington Wizards, their frustrating performances prompted him to lead by example and return to active play in 2001. He retired for the third and final time in 2003 and is now a successful business man. In a career spanning three decades Jordan broke virtually every NBA record and won countless awards, including two Olympic gold medals. He is acknowledged as the most popular and successful player in NBA history.

This book is part of the Biography Shorts Series - Concise, fast paced biographies with no padding. At around 14,000 words this book is designed to be read in little over an hour.
