    Verbosity deminishes an otherwise candid and compelling book

    This book is a definite page-turner. I have to admit that once I started this book I couldn't put it down. I read the whole thing in one sitting. All that he had to say about his childhood, and his life on and off the court was all very interesting, but his book is massively repetative. This book seems like the first draft of something that needs to undergo several revisions. There are several pieces of information that he repeats over and over. In fact, at one point he even repeated the same piece of information twice on the same page. This book is a little over 250 pages in length, but he could have cut that number in half and still gotten his message across. However, Shaq is an athlete, and not an author, so it doesn't make sense to be overly critical. This is still a great book that I would highly recommend.

    SHAQ COULD HAVE BEEN A LITTLE MORE ELABORATE!

    I AM HONORED TO SAY THAT I READ THE BOOK ALTHOUGH, THERE WERE SOME UNFUFILLED QUESTIONS THROUGHOUT THE BOOK. SHAQ COULD HAVE BEEN A LITTLE MORE RELAXED ABOUT HIS LIFE. I ALSO THINK HE SHOULD HAVE GAVE A DESCRIPTIVE STORY OF THE RELATIONSHIPS THAT HE HAS WITH HIS CHILDREN AND THEIR MOTHERS. SHAQ COME ON GIVE UP THE POT OF GOLD! THANKS FOR READING MY REVIEW AND I AM LOOKING FOR ANOTHER GREAT BOOK FROM ANOTHER ATHLETE. SIGNING OFF, SKY RITZ
