School Library Journal - School Library JournalGr 5-9-Series titles that profile pioneers of the Women's National Basketball Association (WNBA). Both books focus on the women's careers and include an abundance of game-related information. Unfortunately, the texts, though accurate, are dry. In addition, biographical information is limited. The full-color and black-and-white photographs represent primarily the athletes' professional lives. Of the two, Lisa Leslie is better written. However, libraries owning Matt Christopher's more in-depth On the Court with Lisa Leslie (Little, Brown, 1998) may not need it. At times, Cynthia Cooper reads like a student's report. Cooper's autobiography, She Got Game (Warner, 1999), is a better choice.-Barb Lawler, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, PA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
