He spent a little more time setting the record straight and criticizing "enemies" than I think a champion should. That disappointed me. His story and talent are still amazing.
Dwight Jones
This was a good book to me because it showed what he went threw in his life to get to where he is now. All of the trials and tribulations he went threw with different people and threw out his life.He was a very powerful person because he overcame alot of stuff that he could've let get to him and handle it his self but he didn't and that made him a better father for his kids and a better husband for his wife.

I really enjoyed reading "For the Love of the Game". Michale Jordan has so much feeling in this book. I love how he opens the book with a dream. The type of tone in this book is warming. I love how in the book he talks about his life, family, and whole world before and after basketball. Michael Jordan talks about his plays, coaches, and teams. I really love how Michale Jordan writes aboutis feelings.

Recommends it for: Basketball fans, Jordan fans, Sports fans, people interested in biographies.
This is a great book. I like how it keeps you interested visually by changing up the text types and pictures on every page. It is very short but written by MJ.

The book For the Love of the Game by Michael Jordan was one of inspirational measures. The book outlined the aspect of never quiting, and it talked about what he had to do to become the man he is today. Michael Jordan talks about his fears, dreams, and his life experiences while playing the game of professional basketball. When i first read this book i was totally inspired to never give up, as Michael Jordan does.
