It is the definite guide to all things Michael Jordan, complete with links to highlight videos that give life to the text on the pages. Any Jordan fan should pick it up for their collection. I learned a lot from it. Everyone wants to be like Mike, and this book shows you how.
My only issue with the book is that the auther often devolves into a stream of consciousness and tangents. This can make the book difficult to read and understand at times, Still, it did get its message across, as well as the author’s love of Jordan.
