Shaq Uncut: My Story by Shaquille O'Neal

Superman. Diesel. The Big Aristotle. Shaq Fu. The Big Daddy. The Big Shaqtus. Wilt Chamberneezy. The Real Deal. The Big Shamrock. Shaq.

You know him by any number of names, and chances are you know all about his legendary basketball career: Shaquille "Shaq" O'Neal is a four-time NBA champion and a three-time NBA Finals MVP. After being an All-American at Louisiana State University, he was the overall number one draft pick in the NBA in 1992. In his 19-year career, Shaq racked up 28,596 career points (including 5,935 free throws!), 13,099 rebounds, 3,026 assists, 2,732 blocks, and 15 All-Star appearances.

These are statistics that are almost as massive as the man himself. His presence-both physically and psychologically-made him a dominant force in the game for two decades.

But if you follow the game, you also know that there's a lot more to Shaquille O'Neal than just basketball.

Shaq is famous for his playful, and at times, provocative personality. He is, literally, outsize in both scale and persona. Whether rapping on any of his five albums, challenging celebrities on his hit television show "Shaq Vs.," studying for his PhD or serving as a reserve police officer, there's no question that Shaq has led a unique and multi-dimensional life. And in this rollicking new autobiography, Shaq discusses his remarkable journey, including his candid thoughts on teammates and coaches like Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, Phil Jackson, and Pat Riley.

From growing up in difficult circumstances and getting cut from his high school basketball team to his larger-than-life basketball career, Shaq lays it all out in SHAQ UNCUT: MY STORY.

This book provided a very detailed view inside the life of Shaq.Though the title is Shaq uncut, I didn't think that Shaq would delve into his personal life as thoroughly as he did. Great read, couldn't put my nook down. Wish Shaq the best of luck in retirement and thank him for his contribution to the game. Great player even better person.

This book was an excellent read. Shaq really goes in depth and explains all of the relationships that he has inside and outside of the NBA. The title really does explain this whole book, it is really is "Shaq Uncut." I would recommend this book to anyone, whether they are a sports fan or not. This book teaches people to follow their dreams, and overcome the world around you, like Shaq did when he lived in New Jersey.

No bad book if your a Shaq fan or not. He gives some background into his side of things and most seems legit although some things are obviously shall we say mis-remembered
