Overview

Hailed as the greatest to have ever played the game, Michael Jordan reigned supreme over theNBA for eleven seasons. While his achievements on the court have made him a basketball legend, his activities off the court as businessman, movie star, and pitchman have made himan American icon. In this unique biography, the author of the bestselling Speaks series shedslight on the drive and determination behind the incredible success of His Royal Airness by bringing together original Jordan quotes culled from articles, newscasts, andinterviews.

Possibly the most recognized celebrity on the planet today, definitely one of the greatest sports figures who ever lived and, by far, the most effective product endorser in the history of business, Michael "Air" Jordan is the stuff of legend. But it is more than his unrivaled skill in basketball or his phenomenal success in business that have earned him the love and respect of billions. Whether on the court or the sound stage, Jordan embodies all the qualities that people most admire in a winner and role model: quiet dignity and consummate grace, driving ambition and a heartfelt sense of fair play.

In this book Janet Lowe, author of the bestselling Warren Buffett Speaks and Oprah Winfrey Speaks, offers us an inspiring look at the man behind the Michael Jordan image. Drawn from hundreds of sources, the quotes gathered together in this book reveal Michael Jordan's views on everything from sports and winning to love and family, to teamwork and individual initiative.
