MY HERO recommends this book to readers of all age groups.
Michael Jordan is the greatest basketball player of all time. But his pre-eminence is more than just extraordinary athletic ability: the lessons of his life-such as focus, passion, hard work, perseverance and accountability-have shaped him into one of the most revered celebrities of the 20th century. In this inspiring book Pat Williams, motivational speaker and senior vice president of the NBA's Orlando Magic, reveals Jordan's method for living a life of greatness that we can all incorporate into our lives. Fascinating anecdotes and quotes from those who know Michael best provide a glimpse into a persona as sweeping and immense as any generation has ever witnessed. Peppered with examples from Williams's life and those of other star athletes and celebrities, this uplifting book shows that we are, indeed, all capable of fulfilling our full potential. Readers from all walks of life can appreciate and aspire to living life like a champion.

i like this book because it makes some people
do what he did but better in the past year's.
He was good at basketball but wasn't the greatest because every body good at something MJ kept on trying untill he got were he wanted
to be now look where he's at living a good life

Jordan is not only my favorite playa, but also my Idol, I have done many things in my life, but none of them add up to MJ

I mastered my basketball skills and have lots of jordan retros and the originals just because of my hero. I met Michael Jordan many years ago, and played him one on one and boy he was hard that was the best day of my life. I hope to see him again!!
