Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Even if you're not a fan of his controversial rap CD, you'll find plenty of stats and facts in this bio of 76ers star Allen Iverson. Smallwood describes Iverson's Virginia childhood and his climb to the top in Allen Iverson: Fear No One. In addition to analyzing his game, Smallwood shows Iverson's many sides -- including his ability to be a good role model for the legions of kids who adore him.
KLIATT
Everyone knows about the "3 r's" (reading, ''riting, and 'rithemetic); Allen Iverson made the "3 p's"—poverty, persistence, and positive attitude—his maxim to become a successful student of life and one of the most successful pro basketball players of the past quarter-century. Descriptions of life in the poorest sections of Hartford, Connecticut are vivid and thought provoking. Iverson vowed to never live: ...underneath a sewage pipe seeping raw sewage into an apartment that often had no heat or electricity as a result of unpaid bills ... Living in a house where...the floor was wet from sewage... making my sisters sick. Luckily, Iverson's natural athletic talent (he began his high school athletic career as a star quarterback and led his alma mater, Bethel High School to the state football championship his junior year) and sheer determination allowed him to excel in basketball and be recruited for a basketball scholarship by Georgetown University. His decision to forego his junior and senior years at Georgetown—motivated by his sister's seizures, becoming a father, and questions of eligibility and questionable gift giving—was a difficult one that propelled Iverson into the wild, professional world of the NBA. This would be a great book for reluctant readers to read in small group situations—reading portions of the book together and discussing issues, for example. Students could identify with Iverson's personal and professional struggles. Also, life skills classes could benefit from the motivational messages and real-life scenarios presented by sports journalist Smallwood. Note, the language is realistically raw in places. Category: Biography & PersonalNarrative. KLIATT Codes: SA—Recommended for senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 2001, Pocket Books, 178p., $6.99. Ages 16 to adult.

    Fear No One

    I bet you know who Allen Iverson is; he is the superstar guard for the Phillidelphia 76ers and he is one of the best players in the NBA. I bet what you didn¿t know is that he grew up in one of the worst enviornments you could ever think of. His family had no money and his neighborhood was filled with drug dealers and crime.some months his house had no electricity because his mom could not foot the bill. But that all changed when he got involed with basketball.when Allen first stepped on a basketball court he amazed people. his quickness and agility made him one of the best players on the streets.Having a killer crossover didn¿t hurt either.You could have said he was good! Allen did get into some trouble when he was in high school; he served 4 months in prision for something he says he did not do. Allen went to high school at Bethel high and went to college at Georgetown on a full- scolarship with coach John Thompson. Coach Thompson was not only Allen¿s college coach but as Allen¿s mentor.Thompson taught Allen everything he knows today about life and basketball. John Thompson is a great man. I loved this book! This is a story shows how yu can go from nothing to something. Allen Iveron overcame big obstacles and is role-model for anyone who lives in the ghetto or a bad enviornment. I recommend this book to anyone who loves basketball or Allen Iverson. Go buy that book today!
