5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best sport reads, 20 May 2013
A very enlightening, informative & entertaining book. A definitive account of probably the most iconic sports band-of-brothers there ever was. Jack McCallum transports you back to 1992 effortlessly, to an occasion I doubt we will ever see again. If you missed the Barcelona Olympics, this superb account actually makes you believe you were there or that you watched every minute of every one-sided rout. I recommend this book to anyone, even if you're not into sports. This is more than just a sports story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for the fan of basketball in it's 80s/90s heyday, 9 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dream Team: How Michael, Magic, Larry, Charles, and the Greatest Team of All Time Conquered the World and Changed the Game of Bask (Hardcover)
For those of you of a similar age as myself and a basketball fan, the players in this book are as recognisable as your own limbs. The collection of players bought together for this first professional US Olympic team was not only unprecedented, but in my humble opinion, as of yet unmatched.

The memories of opponents lining up to be photographed with their NBA idols, point guards laughing as Jordan dunked on them and Angola taking the lead by a single point in the opening game, only to be steamrollered for the next half are still as fresh now as they were then. It could be said that this is the defintive book on the '92 team, but I can't help feeling that perhaps essays written by the players and interspersed throughout the book would have made this a slightly easier read.

Just by assembling this team of superstars, many of whom are still heavily involved in the game, is an achievement in and of itself and must be akin to hearding cats, albeit millionaire superstar cats and for that he is to be heavily commended and I would recommend this book to anybody that watched this incredible collection of superstars play in Barcelona.
