Library Journal - Library Journal
The number of books about Jordan and the Chicago Bulls is now in double figures, but this entry is one of the best. It is not just a biography of Jordan, or a rehash of the Bulls' championship season--it attempts to go behind the scenes of pro basketball's most recognizable figure. Naughton describes Jordan's basketball life in some detail, and tells the role of Jordan's parents, teammates, and family. The book breaks new ground in describing Jordan's business dealings, particularly with Nike. Of great interest is the ambivalent perception and involvement of Jordan in the black community. This book is several levels above most sports biographies. Recommended for public and school libraries.-- William O. Scheeren, Hempfield Area H.S. Lib., Greensburg, Pa.
