From School Library Journal

Adult/High School-This motivational book uses Michael Jordan as a prime example of how to achieve one's dream career goals whether they are in the sports arena or in other fields. Each chapter focuses on one ingredient in the recipe for success. The elements are identified as effective concentration, a joyful love for one's work, unrelenting practice of one's skills, persistent determination to achieve, acceptance of personal responsibility for one's own actions, treating others with warmth and respect, etc. There are copious anecdotes about how the basketball star has smoothly blended them all into his life, but there are also quotes from a variety of people, including Ralph Waldo Emerson, Síren Kierkegaard, James Baldwin, Miles Davis, and Anthony Quinn. Jordan is portrayed as the most hardworking man in his field, and his persistence rather than his natural athletic talent is credited for his legendary achievements. MJ's fans will naturally enjoy reading about him, but even those who aren't basketball fanatics will be inspired by the principles promoted here.

By interviewing more than 1,400 friends, coaches, teammates, rivals, and just about anyone else whose life was touched by Michael Jordan, Williams, a motivational speaker and the owner of the Orlando Magic, has amassed enough anecdotes to . . . well, write a book. The text covers what makes M. J. great--as a person, a role model, a leader, and, yes, a basketball player. What's refreshing here is that Jordan is portrayed as human like the rest of us, which means that if we were to apply our skills to our lives as Jordan has to his, we, too, could "be like Mike." Motivational quotes from such diverse figures as Rose Kennedy and Bertolt Brecht are scattered among the inspiring, often funny Jordan quips. Each chapter elaborates on aspects of Michael's success ("Focus, Passion & Energy") and includes introductory comments by Michael himself. What will allow this book to stand out among the myriad motivational titles out there? It's simple, entertaining, and commonsensical. And it's about Michael Jordan. Mary Frances Wilkens

Je ne lis généralement que des autobiographies quand je suis intéressé par une personne car quand on lit le livre de quelqu'un qu'on ne connaît pas on ne peut pas savoir ses intentions, son objectivité, le biais par lequel il interprète ou juge.
J'ai néanmoins acheté ce livre car l'auteur et les gens associés au livre semblaient assez crédibles.
Ayant lu les 3 livres de MJ, j'ai de quoi me faire une idée.
Effectivement, le livre rend bien compte dans l'ensemble de ce qu'est et représente MJ.
Même si je ne donne pas crédit au passage qui va ds le sens de Van Gundy.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Inspiring book for just about anybody 17 mars 2002
Par Blaine Greenfield - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
You don't have to be a basketball fan to love HOW TO BE LIKE
Williams with Michael Weinreb . . . it is an inspiring book, relevant
to just about anybody . . . parents as well as their children will
enjoy it; so will employers and their employees.
Williams, one of the country's top motivational speakers and senior
vice president of the Orlando Magic, conducted over 1,500 interviews
with those who know Michael Jordan best . . . he then boiled down
what they said into the habits that are needed to succeed . . . these
include such things as focus, passion, perseverance, teamwork,
and leadership.
I particularly liked the many examples taken from the lives of
Jordan, the author and many other unique people . . . in addition,
there were thought-provoking quotes sprinkled throughout the
There were so many memorable passages that it is difficult
to choose just a few to highlight here . . . but among them
were the following:
[on how Williams is perceived]
I am known to those around me as a rather enthusiastic
person--a notion that most probably consider a vast understatement.
Throughout the course of my career in the front office in both
minor-league baseball and the NBA, my energy has led me to some
rather odd precipes. Wrestling bears, for instance. Or overseeing
the most disappointing trained pig act in the history of Philadelphia's
sports. Or donning a sweaty mascot's suit. All for the sake of
Some might call me crazy. I call it a surplus of joy. And I just
happen to believe you should have enough of a surplus to fill a
It's something I learned from my mentor, a one-legged baseball
executive named Bill Veeck, who earned a measure of fame for
having the courage and ingenuity to let a midget bat during a
major-league baseball game. Veeck was the sort of man who
slept two hours a night, whose head exploded with ideas. He
was flush with energy. He relished interaction, and he savored
the small pleasures of his life in baseball. And of his life outside
of baseball. When Bill died in 1986, sports columnist Thomas
Boswell wrote: "Cause of death--life."
[on attaining success]
A magazine called NATION'S BUSINESS once surveyed its
readers, attempting to extract the top ten businesspeople
America had poured forth in its first two hundred years. The list
included the names you'd expect: Edison, Henry Ford, Alexander
Graham Bell. But what's interesting is that while each of the ten
choices were involved in highly competitive businesses--often
cited as a cause of health problems--they lived ripely to an
average age of eighty-seven.
Another survey polled 241 executives on the traits that most helped
workers to become a success. More than 80 percent listed
"enthusiasm." Second, at 63 percent, was a "can-do attitude."
[Jordan in discussion with Bobby Knight at the Olympics]
The uSA led Spain by twenty-seven points at half-time, and
Knight leaned over to Jordan and shouted at him, as a ploy
to avoid a second-half slump. "When are you going to set
some screens?"
Jordan smiled, "Coach," he said, "didn't I read some place you
said I was the quickest player you ever coached?"
"Yeah," Knight said. "What's that got to do with it?"
"Coach, I set those screens faster than you could see them."

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Book Review 14 mars 2002
L'évaluation d'un enfant - Publié sur
Format: Broché
How to be like Mike is a book about a young kid with big dreams. He has many hardships throughout his childhood life and as he gets older too. That kid is Michael Jordan. As a kid, he never wanted to stop playing basketball. He was so much better than all of the other kids. He grew up with his Mom and Dad. His Dad is the one who taught him everything he knows to this day. When he got into highschool, things got rough for him. It wasn't shcool, because he got generally good grades. But it was the highschool varsity basketball team. Something happens to him that really breaks his heart. As he gets older things started to come together for him. people started to notice him and he is liking his new fame. he was on top of the world.
This book was ideal for me because I love to play basketball. It taught me not to give up and always go for the gold. Just life lessons in general, good advice and what to expect. Quotes from other famous people throughout the book. I recommend this book if you are looking for good advice and life lessons.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good blend of statistics and Jordan's life. 8 juillet 2002
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Pat Williams really blends everything from Jordan's life, his life and quotes from alomst every sports legend and even quotes from people who are not a sportsmen. This book really projects the success of Jordan's life as a whole, from the values instilled in him and his own character. It also stresses the most, Jordan's mental strength and capacity [which I admire the most], his ability to withstand immense amounts of mental pressure, soaking up the challenge and relishing every form of competition on and off the court. The quotes inside are really good and applicable and they also explain what made Jordan and other atheletes who are considered legends in their own field of work. It combines the whole of Jordan's life, mostly off court, with snippets of Jordan's life on court, how he felt during the time he had to take a game-winning shot or before a crucial match. Pat Williams really stretched himself in getting all the information compiled into this book. All the values in the book really will push you to work harder and as long as you will be willing to live by these values. For those hard-core basketball fans out there, it is the greatest book written as far as I have read, (I have read alot of books, probably more than a 40 year old person has) in terms of values and things you could do to help yourself improve on and off the court. In terms of statistics of Jordan, how many points he had a game, rebounds, stuff like that, you won't get it here but it has great, applicable values which are more than useful. As I close, I would like to end off with what Jordan said, " The tougher you are on yourself, the easier life will be on you."

5.0 étoiles sur 5 be the very best you can be! 1 février 2002
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Lots of insightful quotes from various NBA athletes and coaches on how MJ became one of the world's best basketball players. But you don't have to be a professional athlete to benefit from the advice. Good quotes from people like Winston Churchhill, Beethoven, etc. scattered throughout the book in easy to read captions. This is a good companion to classics like "Think and Grow Rich." A bit disorganized in places though.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Everyone can be successful 25 mai 2012
Par T. Stewart - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Since I play basketball myself, reading "How to be like Mike" would help me learn from basketball's best, Michael Jordan. The book was inspirational and full of advice that any serious player would need.

Throughout the book you receive snippets of Jordan's journey to success, and you also get an in-depth look at what made him act the way he did. The book was organized by the ideas of each chapter, which led one into the other, but when it came to short stories about Michael, they were random. There were many themes within the writing and the most predominate was that to be successful you not only need to physically prepare yourself, but also train yourself mentally. This theme is shown when it says "He'd done it even though he could barely stand. He'd blustered through the malaise, through the breakdown of his body, and he'd maintained his focus on the series, on the game, on his team" (4). Being mentally prepared is what divides the good from the great players. Yes you can advance just on your physical capabilities, but when those fail you and your mind collapses along with it, you cannot reach your full potential. Jordan had both traits, and by having a solid state of intellect he pushed himself through the flu symptoms that he was feeling during one of the most famous games he has ever played, and he brought his team to victory. In conclusion, to be successful you need to be a well-rounded player and throughout the book author Pat Williams reiterated Jordan's life to demonstrate the theme and the future it can provide.

I agree with the review of Blaine Greenfield when he states, "You don't have to be a basketball fan to love HOW TO BE LIKE MIKE: LIFE LESSONS ABOUT BASKETBALL'S BEST by Pat Williams with Michael Weinreb... it is an inspiring book, relevant to just about anybody... parents as well as their children will enjoy it; so will employers and their employees." The reason I agree is that even though the book is centered on basketball and a huge basketball icon, anyone can learn from it and apply the lessons into whatever they do in their daily lives. "Michael knew he couldn't beat him, so his goal was to out drive him on just one hole" (98). In the book Pat Williams wrote about Jordan on the court, but also in a different setting off the court. This tells the readers that Jordan can take his basketball traits and state of mind off the court and apply them to a different activity, and the reader can too.

My recommendation to you is that if you are stuck in a rut when it comes to work, school, basketball or anything that you are struggling with, read this book. Michael Jordan is truly inspirational and just by reading his quotes and reading about his experiences makes you want to live your life with a new kind of perspective. He makes you feel like you can be successful too, no matter what you do, whether it is a big task or a small one. Everyone can be successful.
