In the last few months, I have been reading basketball books. I'm not sure why; maybe because I used to be fan and with our move i don't have a team that I follow.

A quick read. It read like a diary. Informative but not deep enough. Although the author had a very short time period to write about, it may have been helpful to add a bit more depth. If your interests lie in auto-biographical or history, this might be some too light. I appreciated the author's overall experience and would like to know if he has intentions of returning to the reservation in the future.

This is a great book. It gives some insight into an overlooked part of our population (in the U.S.). It is a great book but if you enjoy studying Native American culture then this is a must-read. Also, Kareem tells how one person can make a real difference. Oh yeah, it also has basketball, a wonderful sport.
