I was disappointed at this book. It's not really a true autobiography of Michael Jordan, but just a bunch of photos and statistics of his career, and just some random thoughts. The photos are nice, but there was a lot lacking. It reminds me so much of "Rare Air", Jordan's first "autobiography". And plus, it's too expensive. I wouldn't recommend buying it, just check it out from the library or browse it at the bookstore.

This was an excellent, fun, and moving book. I agree that the writing wasn't really compelling on its own, but coupled with the brilliant photography (you'll "double-take" more than once while reading it) and Jordan's limitless charisma, this was a very fast read (for me, one evening in the local public library).
However, I do agree with some who say that the price is a bit much. I'd probably only buy this book if I could buy a Porsche. That's why I only give it four stars.
If you scroll down, you'll read a lot of critics who complain about Jordan making a lot of money--among other things. Gee, for those of you who might have been living behind the Iron Curtain, welcome to America! There are few rights more important than one's right to prosper from one's own talents, efforts, and assets.
The people who complain about Jordan's success are just envious collectivists who are unhappy about their inability to compete in a society of freedom and capitalism.
If you have a problem with Jordan making a lot of money, then you probably shouldn't have watched or attended any Bulls games, bought any products endorsed by him, or read either of his books.
If he's "arrogant", he has plenty of reason to be proud of himself. If he's a gambler, then it's his own money and his own business what he does with it. If he doesn't help those who are less successful than he is, then he's a smart man who knows what's good for himself (and I don't recall hearing about anyone giving him a handout when he was growing up).
All in all, this is a good book about a man who exemplifies physical excellence. It's just a little bit on the expensive side.
Enjoy this book at your local public library (or buy if you have the money). Leave the criticizing to the envious collectivists who'll vent their unhappiness on talk radio or drown it in a beer at their neighborhood sports bar.

Von Ein Kunde am 28. Februar 1999

I think that David Rae summed up the thesis of this book very well in a past review. Since it is now only on the backlists, I provide you with an excerpt:
"Michael Jordan is the greatest basketball player of all time. It is f------ incredulous that our society would ever let a 'legend' (at a game intended for youths and adolescents) turn his game into such a godd--- travesty for dollars. Now that is a paradox if I've ever seen one. If Rich Uncle Pennybags really wanted everyone to know what he was feeling during those games (although in several polls he has been voted the biggest jacka-- in the once-proud NBA's history and the most arrogant person ever), he would release a book whose price would fit under the Bulls' salary cap. Jordan doesn't give a flying f--- about his fans, either; The only faces he knows are his agent's, Ben Franklin's, U.S. Grant's and Andrew Jackson's, and I'm counting his teammates and coach, who he doesn't give a rat's a-- about either. Jordan's....most pathetic attempt lies in the title itself, which becomes a crock of s--- as soon as it reaches the word 'game'. I find it hard to believe that even a heartless a--hole like Michael himself can go to sleep on his pile of money every night, knowing that he could be spending just $1 million of his 70 mil a year to save at least 100 lives of people who work 18 hours a day and can't make enough to eat (and are working for his company to boot). He didn't even give a rat's a-- that all of his praisers around the world wanted him to (continue playing). He didn't care that he broke up a dynasty....Jordan, who as we speak has made about $1000, defines professional sports: brash, greedy, selfish, apathetic, and to sum it up in one word, a--hole.

Jordan's - whoops, I shouldn't use that name; he didn't actually write any of it himself- most pathetic attempt lies in the title itself, which becomes a crock of s--- as soon as it reaches the word 'game'. I find it hard to believe that even a heartless a--hole like Michael himself can go to sleep on his pile of money every night, knowing that he could be spending just $1 million of his 70 mil a year to save at least 100 lives of people who work 18 hours a day and can't make enough to eat. He didn't even give a rat's a-- that all of his praisers around the world wanted him to stay. He didn't care that he broke up a dynasty. I should probably also stop using the name 'Jordan', since he is the only basketball player in the NBA who stubbornly refuses to let the video-game companies put his name into their games unless they pay him royalties in the neighborhood of $4 mil. Jordan, who as we speak has made about $1000, defines professional sports: brash, greedy, selfish, apathetic, and to sum it up in one word, a--hole.
