Overview

LeBron James is the world's most talked-about active basketball player, arousing both adoration and intense criticism. Sports fans and journalists see James as either the most exciting basketball player of this generation or as a selfish underachiever. Sometimes, perhaps both.

This book, however, sets aside what everyone else has to say about James and instead simply lets James speak for himself. It contains over 200 quotes from LeBron James on over 100 subjects, taken from press conferences; magazine, newspaper, website, and television interviews; public appearances; and even his Twitter posts. The quotes are culled from the past 10 years, and include media coverage of James when he was still in high school.

LeBron James In His Own Words: an unofficial quotebook gives a good picture of how James sees the world, what matters to him, and how he pursues his goals. There are plenty of motivational quotes from James which can inspire readers in the pursuit of their own goals.

Subjects include: Always Improving, Approach to the Game, Barack Obama, Commitment, Competition, Dan Gilbert, Focus, Leadership, Olympics, and Work Ethic.

Alphabetically arranged, this is the only book compilation of his observations.

    LeBron James In His Own Words

    With the exception of one minor issue (two sections that both discuss the same subject, James’ starting his own sports marketing company, with different headings), the setup of this book is done well, with an active table of contents and quotes grouped in several different subject areas. If you want to know what LeBron James has said about his hometown of Akron, Ohio, or how he feels about Barack Obama, you’ll be able to quickly find the answer. If you feel a sudden need for James’ thoughts on voting, success, or Nike, you’re covered.

    But after reading this book I was left wondering, “why?” I could see two ways to approach this book. The first, to get a sense for LeBron James as a person. How he views life, both on and off the court. This book could do that, to a small degree, but if that is your goal, you’d get a much better sense picking up one of the many biographies available.

    The logical method to evaluate this book is as I would typically look at any book of quotations. If the book only includes quotes from one person, I would expect it to be someone considered an expert on the subject of the quotes, whose thoughts and ideas are insightful, or who is especially entertaining in their outlook. George Carlin or, if you want a sports star, Yogi Berra, I could understand. The author’s book with quotes from Mitt Romney might have appeal to some. But the quotes here didn’t seem especially enlightening. Many fell into what I’d call the “generic sports quote” category – they could, and probably have, been said in basically the same way by other sports stars. I didn’t read something and think, “that is a great way to put that” or “I wish I’d said that,” both reactions I’d like to see in a book of quotes. For rabid LeBron James fans who feel a need to have what their favorite star said at their fingertips, this might be worthwhile. For others, I think it’s a pass.
