In his self-titled biography, Starks also gives his own account of what his career highs (e.g., being the first CBA guard to win a spot on an NBA All-Star team) and lows (e.g., his much publicized horrendous shooting display during Game 7 of the 1994 NBA finals) have meant to him after his playing days were over.

John Starks: My Life is about the true definition of starting from the bottom. He fought through a ton of adversity to get to the NBA which is very tough to do. I recommend this book to any basketball fan or any person who wants to be motivated to accomplish a goal.
