Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

Praise for Michael Jordan:

"When a world-class biographer writes about a world-class athlete, you have a biography for the ages. This is the ultimate study of Michael Jordan, and I know you will be as captivated as I was."—Pat Williams, Orlando Magic senior vice president, author of Coach Wooden's Greatest Secret

"Studded with insights."—Kirkus Reviews

"Revelatory.... A fascinating examination into the lonely, prideful man behind the glimmering icon."—Publishers Weekly

"MJ's life is a movie worth watching again, and Lazenby adds enough deleted scenes to add some oomph to the familiar story."—Booklist

"It's not every day that I'm blown away by a book about a sports figure. But MICHAEL JORDAN: THE LIFE, by Roland Lazenby, ranks up there with the very best: The Boys of Summer by Roger Kahn, Friday Night Lights by Buzz Bissinger, and Joe DiMaggio by Richard Ben Cramer. The depth of reporting, his frequent ascent into poetry, and his intelligent analysis of the life of this complicated, fascinating American icon deserve Pulitzer Prize consideration. For the first time I understand what makes Michael Jordan tick. I was captivated, fascinated and beguiled from beginning to end."—Peter Golenbock, New York Times-bestselling author of George and In the Country of Brooklyn

"Lazenby's bona fide credentials provide exclusive access to Jordan's inner circle following the DC fiasco to reveal the hapless Bobcats' owner living lavishly while still frustrated with mere mortals."—Slam

Présentation de l'éditeur

"It's not every day that I'm blown away by a book about a sports figure. But MICHAEL JORDAN: THE LIFE, by Roland Lazenby, ranks up there with the very best: The Boys of Summer by Roger Kahn, Friday Night Lights by Buzz Bissinger, and Joe DiMaggio by Richard Ben Cramer. The depth of reporting, his frequent ascent into poetry, and his intelligent analysis of the life of this complicated, fascinating American icon deserve Pulitzer Prize consideration. For the first time I understand what makes Michael Jordan tick.

The definitive biography of a legendary athlete

The Shrug. The Shot. The Flu Game. Michael Jordan is responsible for sublime moments so ingrained in sports history that they have their own names. When most people think of him, they think of his beautiful shots with the game on the line, his body totally in sync with the ball -- hitting nothing but net.

But for all his greatness, this scion of a complex family from North Carolina's Coastal Plain has a darker side: he's a ruthless competitor and a lover of high stakes. There's never been a biography that encompassed the dual nature of his character and looked so deeply at Jordan on and off the court -- until now.

Basketball journalist Roland Lazenby spent almost thirty years covering Michael Jordan's career in college and the pros. He witnessed Jordan's growth from a skinny rookie to the instantly recognizable global ambassador for basketball whose business savvy and success have millions of kids still wanting to be just like Mike. Yet Lazenby also witnessed the Michael Jordan whose drive and appetite are more fearsome and more insatiable than any of his fans could begin to know. Michael Jordan: The Life explores both sides of his personality to reveal the fullest, most compelling story of the man who is Michael Jordan.

Lazenby draws on his personal relationships with Jordan's coaches; countless interviews with Jordan's friends, teammates, and family members; and interviews with Jordan himself to provide the first truly definitive study of Michael Jordan: the player, the icon, and the man.

Un livre captivant allant bien au-delà du "simple" aspect sportif. Portrait d'un personnage complexe, sans aucun doute l'un des plus grands sportifs de notre époque.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Detailed but not a fun read. 6 juillet 2014
Par C. T. Brown - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Incredibly detailed biography. Seriously, it tells you everything that has ever happened to Michael Jordan and most of what happened to his parents, grandparents and great grandparents. It includes quotes from everyone Jordan has ever been in the same room with or passed on the street. Unfortunately all of this detail and all the side stories made this a tough read, detail is great but more energy would have been good.

Like Michael said in the (in) famous Hall of Fame acceptance speech, what is it about him that we don't already know.
But still a great read.
