5.0 out of 5 stars Jordan Rules and that is for sure
If you like sports, basketball, MJ, you will love this book. Sam Smith had the opportunity to get behind the scenes with Michael, other players, management, and others in the Bulls organization. This allows us to be behind the scenes and see what is really going on.
Yeah, you learn about Michael's bad habits and some nastiness, but overall you find out what a...

3.0 out of 5 stars Misleading title
Although this is an interesting read the title is slightly misleading with the prominent emphasis on Michael Jordan. Jordan features very little in the book. It is more an overall view of the bulls first championship season and would be more aptly named the King rules as Stacey king seems to be the most talked about squad member in the book.

Yeah, you learn about Michael's bad habits and some nastiness, but overall you find out what a great man he really is. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good bad and ugly, 14 Aug 2002
This review is from: The Jordan Rules: The inside Story of a Turbulent Season with Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls (Mass Market Paperback)
This is an excellent book displaying the 'other side' of michael jordan. There are more bad points in this book than in any of the others I have read put together. Perhaps this is the weakness of this book in that it is to much bad news and not enough good. We know MJ is only human but surely the Bulls were not THIS bad?! The author seems to play up certain problems within the team for instance the relationship between horace grant and MJ. I have heard Horace talk about MJ in the best terms yet the author quotes only bad talk.
Perhaps it completes the picture of MJ as a human being as well as superhuman basketball player but if you want a general view of MJ the 'Playing for keeps' book is a far better title.

4.0 out of 5 stars Begrudgingly four star rating, 6 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sam Smith blatantly used Jordan's name to sell this book. I'm an MJ fanboy. However this book is about the Chicago Bulls (who I also liked during that era so didn't mind). Sam Smith knows what the books about and in the foreword sounds almost apologetic for using Jordan's name in the title as his cheap marketing ploy. It still gets four stars as it is well written, gives a good insight and account of the team which seems to be a neutral view and it had me engrossed that I couldn't put it down.
