I like a lot about this book how in certain chapter like the beginning through middle don't only give Chaney but Aaron Mckie and Eddie Jones thoughts to. How chapter 1 talks about Chaney life the big star he was in Philadelphia. But in chapter one and two that's when Eddie AND Aaron thoughts come in and the book get real good because you get another point of view. In some chapters where they talk about Aaron and Eddie life comes up and you get both there views and Chaney. Overall this was a good book I didn't dislike nothing about it. what I really like is how I kind get to learn more of my city from this book from how big Chaney Eddie and Aaron was. I like how it still talks about Chaney Eddie and Aaron outside of basketball. how what they did to the community when they all retire. How what they all did to the community of Philadelphia while they were in the NBA to make it better and Chaney was still coaching. I highly recommend every to buy this book. If your a big temple fan this book is a yes. You get a chance to learn about temples best life and thoughts.
