4.6 out of 5 stars

on 26 July 2016
I didn't get to grow up watching MJ. When I started watching the NBA, it was the end of the Jordan era and close to his third and final retirement. The book cleared up many misconceptions about Jordan. He was the fiercest competitor of them all. He made great decisions about his career. But Jordan was human too. He wasn't perfect but he was the Saint of basketball.

One of the best misconceptions cleared up was the overly shared internet memes about MJ being cut from the high school team. He was already an outstanding player at the time.

Great book - I switched between audiobook and kindle edition (fan of the whispersync feature). I felt like I lived through 30 years of basketball history and this is by all accounts probably the best written book on MJ, if you are interested in basketball, success, the mind of a champion or Air Jordan's...

Read this.

Great book. Covers EVERYTHING about Jordan.
From his ancestors which could explain where his drive comes from. To the off court stories with his family and how Nike came to him.
His success on the baseball court in his early years, his relation with his brother Larry and of course his basketball ascension from high school to the NBA.

Cant recommend it enough to anyone who is interested about Michael Jordan.

After reading this I now feel that I know almost everything about MJ. I am not a huge basketball fan and wanted to know more about the what motivated him which this book helped with.

It has a lot of new info on MJ, especially on his family roots and personal life but is not that well written like Playing for keeps which also covers better his basketball career.
