Don't listen to the critics...
am 18. September 1999
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.
