Arguably the greatest all-around player the game has ever known, he led the Boston Celtics from the basement to three world championships, collecting three NBA Most Valuable Player awards along the way.

Now in "Drive, the long-silent superstar sets the record straight, revealed a side of himself-and of basketball-you've never see before. Inside, you'll learn Bird's most private feelings about: The momentous decision to transfer from Bobby Knight's Indiana University to Indiana State. The heartbreak of his father's suicide and his own failed marriage. The single-minded discipline that tumed a small-town hero into a national superstar. The Boston Garden and the legendary Celtic charm. The Isiah Thomas controversy and the fierce Celtic-Laker rivalry. The great players of the NBA: including Magic Johnson, Dominique Wilkins, and Michael Jordan, and much more. here is the book that puts a basketball legend-and his game-on the line. And scores!

The heart and soul of a champion: his life, his career, and his game. To understand basketball, you have to understand Larry Bird. Arguably the greatest all-around player the game has ever known, he led the Boston Celtics from the basement to three world championships, collecting three NBA Most Valuable Player awards along the way. Yet, despite these massive accomplishments, Bird has rarely talked to the press, and much about the man has remained a mystery. Now in Drive, the long-silent superstar sets the record straight, revealed a side of himself, and of basketball, you've never see before. Larry Bird grew up in the small town of French Lick, Indiana. His family was not very well off. Infact, they would occasionally stay at his grandmother's home. When Larry was twelve he found that he had a God-given ability to play basketball. He knew he was blessed and knew he had to do something about it. Everyday Larry would practice, practice, practice. Shooting foul shots, threes, it didn't matter, he just love the game. Even when he broke his ankle he would still shoot free throws every day. Larry's father committed suicide when Larry was still young. This broke his heart, but he knew his father did what he thought was best for the family. Bird was a celebrity on his High School basketball team in French Lick. The population of the town was only 2,100, but 4,000 people attended his last HS game. After high school he enrolled at Indiana, but never played, dropping out and then hitch-hiking home. He waited a year to be eligible to play at Indiana State. He brought respectability to the Indiana State program which ended in losing to Magic Johnson's Michigan State team in the NCAA Tournament Title Game in 1979.Lesen Sie weiter... ›

A lesson that I learned from Larry Bird was that if you put your mind to something and give it your all ,you will achieve it. Larry Bird would set goals for himself to help him become better at basketball. He would practice everyday and all day to achieve those goals on the basketball court. He would get up in the morning to practice free throws, he would shoot between classes, and then he would have basketball practice after school. When Bird got into the NBA he had to establish himself as a good basketball player all over again, so he worked harder then ever to compete and then to dominate his opponents. Larry Bird's success proves that if you set your goals and be hard working and persistent then you will achieve those goals. Larry Bird's mentor was Jim Jones, his high school basketball coach. Jim Jones guided Larry Bird in his first years of playing basketball. Coach Jones taught him the basics of basketball and helped him correct his mistakes. Jones was a father figure to Bird when he was going through tough times when his dad committed suicide. Bird has kept in touch with his former coach throughout his life, and now they teach basketball camps together. I have a good opinion of this book. I like this book because it is mainly about basketball, and I love playing basketball. It also showed me how hard work can pay off in such a big way. I think it is very interesting because I was reading about one of my idols and learning the obstacles he overcame to get to where he is now. If you like to read about basketball and want to learn about Larry Bird, you should consider reading this book.

Larry Bird is truly one of the greatest that ever played the game. With the help of Ervin "Magic" Johnson, he not only managed to resurrect the Celtic dynasty, but also the entire NBA, which was teetering on the brink of ruination. Now, we get to hear the man behind the legendary exploits on the court. This book not only tells of his career and accomplishments, but also gives a truly touching account of where he came from, where he's been, what he's been through, and what it took to become possibly the most legendary, if not talented, athlete ever to step on a basketball court. This is an inspiring, breathtaking story, and is deeply motivational. Bird is a living example that a combination of hard work, self-sacrifice, never-say-die ethics, and a selfless sense of team play, whether in a sporting venue or in ANY situation life has to offer, invariably leads to not only success, but also excellence. Recommended reading for all aspiring athletes, young people, and anyone else in need of inspiration.

Straight forward, and nothing bad about that. I play basketball regularly. After reading this book, it REALLY encouraged me to practice more to become a better baller. Larry Bird mentions that he wasn't gifted with ups, but he practiced his tail off to compensate for his weaknesses. Bird also mentions and I quote, "I play the game to have have that one moment where I just take over the game..." That and his work ethic served as a foundation for me to aspire to become good at basketball. In fact, the form of my jumpshot is emulated/dedicated to him. Thank you Larry Bird.
