Kurzbeschreibung

12. Mai 1997
A wild ride inside the glowing head of Dennis Rodman--the NBA's greatest rebounder and America's most outspoken and outrageous athlete.



When Sports Illustrated put the man they call "America's most provocative athlete" on their cover, they sold more copies than any other issue they had sold in a decade (except the swimsuit issue). Why? Because Dennis Rodman, superstar basketball player who joined the Chicago Bulls for the 1996 season, has more in common with Mick Jagger than with his new teammate Michael Jordan. With his body-covering tattoos and ever-changing fluorescent hair, Rodman's sideline antics and celebrated benchings have captivated sports fans as much as his record-breaking on-court performances and earned him a reputation as a rebel with the same penchant for shocking behavior as his on-again off-again squeeze, Madonna. In Bad as I Wanna Be he shares his surprising and candid opinions on everything from fame, money, and race relations, to sex, drugs, and rock-n-roll--and he'll talk about his life, from going to prison for stealing watches to his daughter, the light of his life.



At a time when most celebrities and professional athletes try to control their public personas like politicians and refrain from expressing their true beliefs, Dennis Rodman is a refreshingly unique, uncompromising individual who both transcends his world and refuses to conform to it. Bad as I Wanna Be is as candid, intriguing, and unforgettable as he is.

Perhaps it's simply coincidence that I've read Dennis Rodman's book at the same time I've read James Stewart's fog-lifting expose on Bill and Hillary Clinton and their business dealings. Thus, some contrasts conveniently come to mind. In "Blood Sport" readers find a politically motivated couple of idealogues constantly seeking to mask who they are by creating an image of mainstream normalcy. In "Bad As I Wanna Be" readers are able to scratch below an outrageous self-made image to find a fairly normal guy inside...and I emphasize "inside." Certainly most men will never dye their hair five different colors; nor do we desire to dress in women's clothes, cover ourselves with tatoos or appear butt naked on the cover of our biography. Yet, there are some chords which Rodman strikes in his book that echo in the hearts of most men. Themes such as rejection, seeking one's identity, looking beyond the surface and temporality of some of our institutions (like the NBA), hard work and a humble realization that good fortune is arbitrary and can turn at any time. Most people have had an opinion of Rodman which bounces from curiosity to hate, more often hate. As one who was raised in Massachusetts, and therefore a big Bird fan, I still remember the racist remarks Rodman made in his rookie year, following the Celtics' defeat of the Pistons. Yet, after reading his frank recollection of what led him to trigger that famous incident (and the fact that he does give Bird his due in the book)I forgive him. Rodman's language is certainly honest, albeit extremely crude at times. Yet, after sifting through the vulgarities, one can't help but saying: "The guy's got a point, there. Lesen Sie weiter... ›

3.0 von 5 Sternen An honest account of his contribution to basketball. 17. September 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Dennis Rodman has produced a book that reminds us we live in a society of uninformed consumers. Since the book has come out, there has been a cliche division between two camps; those who like his image and those who are offended by it. The reality is, Rodman walks a very fine line between popular entertainer and basketball innovator. As entertainment, his image greatly increased ticket sales; a fact "management" does not properly acknowledge because they (like the fans) are afraid to show approval of such a deviant character. As an innovator, Rodman deserves the respect of true lovers of the game. He is unique because his approach (as he details in the book) has never been utilized with such conscious effort. Rodman seeks to turn the game on its head, using rebounding as a way to win the game. His vision is a game with less points in which defense is ultimately the deciding factor. While his critics regurgitate statistics hoping to lessen any attention given him, Rodman's status as an important contributor to the game will survive. He possesses the conviction that inspires all innovators to persist in the face of public ignorance. Finally, it is ironic that the very same "fans" who seek the excitement of instant gratification, will not admit to the magnetism of his image, nor will they admit to his integrity as a player of the game these "fans" are supposedly so passionate about. This is an informative, entertaining book that should motivate people to respect Mr. Rodman for providing us with great basketball and memorable culture.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The book is excellent, with a good message. 22. August 1996
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This book shows that Dennis Rodman is a great entertainer as well as a fabulous athlete; it also shows why he is a good role model for kids and teenagers. For one thing, he's very honest in speaking his mind; he doesn't hide behind a "wall of fame" or athletic (NBA) privilege. He also has a lot to say about the underside of the NBA-- the warped values and general sleaziness of some of the players in the league. He also talks about men and masculinity in ways that men don't sometimes want to hear, but need to hear. Last, he describes the development of his legendary work ethic for people who aren't necessarily basketball fans. But what I really liked about this book is that Dennis is very insistent that a person take pride in themselves and take pride in who he or she is, no matter who they are. This, along with the message about becoming successful by working hard, makes this a book which has a good message for kids and teenagers as well as adults

4.0 von 5 Sternen Rodman . . . a human being 29. April 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
You can read this book from several points of view.

- If you love basketball (as I do) you can learn and enjoy at the same time just reading it.

- If you want to understand how the life works,
Rodman can teach you.

In many ways the things that happened to him, are the same stuff that everybody gets in life.
Individual Success, Team success, love, frustration, crazy stuff, etc.

The only thing that I don't like about the book, is that SOMETIMES Rodman believes that he is the focus on everything. But that only shows the fact : Rodman is a human being.
I like how Rodman plays and the respect that he has about himself.
By the way, I don't have the american way of live, because I don't live in USA. So this can give you a different perspective for my understanding about the book.
So, let the man live his own life
