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...
