Introduction This book reveals important parts of Michael Jordan’s life as a young boy and some great goals he achieves during his life and as a professional basketball player. Great book! Description and summary of main points Michael Jordan works hard a being great at basketball and ends up at being one of the best payers there ever was. He led the other players on his team to an overall of six championships. Awesome! Evaluation This book offers a large amount of factual information on events in Michael Jordan’s life. It discusses his life during high school and college as well as when he was even younger. It discusses information of when he was on the Olympics basketball team. Other biographies do not compare to this one as this book contained more information than usual books of this genre. Cool! Conclusion Fantastic book! It is a great book for anyone wanting to know a little bit more about Michael Jordan. The book is easy to read and is around 150 pages long. Your final review This is probably my most favorite book . I WOULD GIVE IT 5/5 STARS BECAUSE IT IS GREAT!

This book is kind of hard to follow.... but it gives a lot of info on his business life. If you're looking for something about his on court accomplishments this isn't for you

If you¿ve ever worn a pair of Jordan shoes before then you¿ve probably wondered the story behind Michael Jordan himself. In the book Driven from Within it goes through the life of the greatest basketball player of all him. It goes through his life from when he played in high school until he got his own shoe. This book puts emphasis on that theme ¿ Be the best that you can be.¿ Michael Jordan was born on February 17, 1963 in Brooklyn, New York. But he didn¿t stay there for long when he was a toddler he moved to Wilmington, North Carolina with his two brothers and two sisters. In his child life he loved to play sports he didn¿t just focus on basketball yet. He was very competitive with his brother, which probably helped him become the player he is now. Ironically the best player in all of basketball got cut from the varsity team at Laney High School in his sophomore year. But that just made him motivated him to do better and eventually led the team to the state championship. He got a scholarship to the University of North Carolina. After college he got selected in the 3rd round draft pick to the NBA. In his first year in the NBA he made a huge impact. His skills later led to six championship titles and his own shoe. Michael Jordan was not like any other player in the NBA. He was very driven to be the best and his determination made him a great player. But he had a lot of help on the way. Of course like any other son he had the help of his mother Delores Jordan. She supported him in his basketball career. He also got a lot of support from his coach from the University of North Carolina Dean Smith. He led him in the direction to become a great basketball player. The writer uses a great technique to write this book. He goes a great job in describe Michael Jordan¿s life. Another thing that the writer does well is that he puts pictures in the book. That¿s good because it¿s not like other long boring books that don¿t have any pictures too look at. So kudos to Michael Jordan for writing a great book. Not only is he a good basketball player but he¿s proven to be a good book writer too. The point of view of this book is in first person so Michael tells his whole story from his point of view. But some of the things that disappointed be about this book is that Michael didn¿t really express his feelings about stuff. But other than that the book was good. On a scale of 1-10 I give this book a 11! I recommend this book to anyone that is a fan of basketball. I¿d also recommend this book to anyone that is a fanatic of ¿Jordan¿ brand shoes. This book has to be one of my favorite books.

This cunning story about six time National Basketball Association champion, Micheal Jordan is extremely inspiring to all who have their eyes set on something big in life. It shows how determination and hard work can pay off to a successful life in the future. It is a true nothing to something story about this kid who grew up with low expectations from freinds and family alike, and ended his professional career as arguably the greatest player to ever play the game of basketball. This book is an inspiration to anyone who reads it, specially young atheletes.

As a P.E. teacher of grades 7,8,9 I am always looking for away to get my students to believe more in themsleves,try harder,and find that one thing that makes this all happen. After reading this book I thought I might have found it so I gave it to one of my studnets to see what happened and they passed it on to another and another. The number of studnet that have read it is amazing I couldn't have asked for more. GREAT BOOK
