Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Those who think Michael Jordan was ALWAYS the greatest will be intrigued by this bio, which paints him as an ordinary guy who for a while had trouble keeping his priorities straight. For instance, Michael used to skip school so he could practice shooting baskets. Later, as a rising college hoops star, he pushed his fellow players so hard that he wound up virtually friendless. And when he became a pro player, he was so incredible on the court that he irritated all the other players in the league, including those on his own team. This warts-and-all bio shows how you can learn from your mistakes and become a better human being, because being "the best ever" is simply not enough. The author shows how Michael has overcome his own selfish tendencies and improved both his game and his life. This is a smart choice for a classroom bookshelf, to entice reluctant readers who happen to be hoops fans. Part of the "High Five Reading" series. 2002, Capstone Press,
