Perhaps it was because Michael Jordans' latest comeback was relatively a failure, but that is the only excuse I can summise for this average effort. The book starts well, but never keeps it's momentum ( Yes,I realise the parallel there ), all in all it was a let down. If you are looking for a good book about Michael Jordan, Rebound by Bob Greene is good or Blood on the Horns by Roland Lazenby, if you just want a good book about basketball, The City Game by Peter Axthelm is excellent, as are any of the basketball books by John Feinstein.

this book is directed largely at those people who have followed mj's career closely and are a big fan of his. this book chronicles everything in detail from his taking up the executive position with the washington wizards to his retirement and him being let go from the wizards president of basketball operations position. this book can be heavy going for the casual reader but for those willing to read to the end it provides and insightful look into jordan's leadership of the wizards. the first few chapters give a brief overview of his pre wizards days, but the focus is very much 2001-2003. i would recommend this book to anyone who respects the game of basketball and what michael jordan contributed to it.
