  • "Well Told"

    Overall

    Story

    It is a well told story and there are lessons to be learned from someone who made herself into one of sports biggest success stories. Nobody did it for her...Pat made Pat and she had great influence on many lives. I think the story brings that out well without over doing it. I am not a Tennessee fan per se, but I am a fan of success and positive influence. The book is well done in my opinion.

    Pat Summitt, the all-time winningest coach in NCAA basketball history and best-selling author of Reach for the Summitt and Raise the Roof, tells for the first time her remarkable story of victory and resilience as well as facing down her greatest challenge: early-onset Alzheimer's disease.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Shaq Uncut the most enjoyable?

    I have to admit that I was pleasantly suprised at how well I enjoyed this. The narrator was very good and at first you think that Shaq is really telling this. You do get the feeling that Shaq loves himself and that no one will ever be like him....But that's Shaq. A GOOD LISTEN.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mother and Grandmother... They always kept him on point.


    Which character – as performed by Dion Graham – was your favorite?

    Shaq.... of course


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The Big (...) Can you dig it...

  • "Great insight into the great basket..."

    1 of 1 helpful votes

    As a basketball fan, a David Robinson super fan and a teen of the 90's this book was right up my alley. It was great hearing all the great stories about the players who molded the NBA through the 80's & 90's. Great insight all how all those players talk and think about each other, these same players who would battle while on the team and for another 5-10 years after. This is a must listen for all basketball lovers.

    Twelve-year-old Danny Walker may be the smallest kid on the basketball court, but don't tell him that. Because no one plays with more heart or court sense. But none of that matters when he is cut from his local travel team, the very same team his father led to national prominence as a boy. Danny's father knows Danny isn't the only kid who was cut for the wrong reason, and together, this washed-up former player and a bunch of never-say-die kids prove that the heart simply cannot be measured.

    Pistol is more than the biography of a ballplayer. It's the stuff of classic novels: the story of a boy transformed by his father's dream and the cost of that dream. Even as Pete Maravich became Pistol Pete, a basketball icon for baby boomers, all the Maraviches paid a price. Now acclaimed author Mark Kriegel has brilliantly captured the saga of an American family: its rise, its apparent ruin, and, finally, its redemption.

There is no event in sports quite like it. The Final Four draws millions to their televisions and thousands to a chosen city; attendance is topped only by the Super Bowl. It is the epicenter of sports madness, a circus of media, coaches, and fans swirling around the four teams talented enough to have made it to the end.

He is responsible for incredible moments so ingrained in basketball history that they have their own names: The Shrug, The Shot, The Flu Game. But for all his greatness, there's also a dark side to Jordan: A ruthless competitor, a gambler. There's never been a biography that balanced these personas-until now.

    True spirituality requires that one develop a cosmic consciousness. Words are the containers by which the power of the Spirit (Universe) is shipped into the realm of the material world. It's critical for a spiritual man, a cultural warrior to achieve a state of clarity, within which he will be able to handle the power of the Spirit. The fundamental challenge for the warrior is to bring the immensity of the power of the Spirit alive in the Universe to bear on the circumstances of everyday living.

    It seems unlikely that James Naismith, who grew up playing "Duck on the Rock" in the rural community of Almonte, Canada, would invent one of America's most popular sports. But Rob Rains and Hellen Carpenter's fascinating, in-depth biography James Naismith: The Man Who Invented Basketball shows how this young man - who wanted to be a medical doctor, or if not that, a minister (in fact, he was both) - came to create a game that has endured for over a century.
