if its uber popular, than i'm probly gonna read it. yeah, i'm that guy! sorry. unless its stephen king. DARK TOWER baby!!!
like my title says, its an entertaining book to listen to. good enough to bridge gaps, and if your a big basketball fan like i am then its a great listen.
his last/current relationship is a total non-factor in the entire story. i see no place for it aside to validate his happiness now after his divorce..
dion graham does a very good shaq impersonation the entire length of the book.
i listened to this book in 3 sittings, although i can't call them sittings because i listened while working. it is easy listening for sure but i'm not one for an activity that last that long.
entertaining but not interesting, just as the man SHAQ is. any basketball fan or laker fan would enjoy.
I normally enjoy sports audiobooks and this one didn't disappoint.
This book reminded me a bit of Andre Agassi's autobiography, Open. Shaq gives an honest opinion of people he's encountered, played with and played against throughout his career. Agassi did the same.
Dion Graham gives an excellent performance. I had heard him read
Yes, I looked forward to my commute each morning and afternoon to listen to Shaq tell his story.
I am a casual basketball fan and was never a big fan of Shaq until I saw his reality show, Shaq Versus. I learned a lot about him and I am impressed at how multifaceted he is. I had no idea that he is a policeman, or that he has his MBA and is working toward his Ph.D. I have gained a newfound respect for Shaq and I won't be surprised if he continues to do great things in the basketball and business communities even though he has retired.
This was a fun book with great insight. The author is fantastic as always, giving you a very special behind the scenes look into the career and personal life of Shaquille O'Neal. If your a fan of Shaq or just basketball in general , this is a must read.
Everything. I could care less how much money he spent on things he didn't need. As a basketball fan, I wanted to hear what it was like playing with some of the best players in NBA history: Kobe Bryant, Lebron James, Dwayne Wade, etc. And what was it like to play for [arguably] the best coach in NBA history: Phil Jackson? I want to know what you LEARNED from playing with all these guys. How did that inform you as a leader? And what did you learn going from season-to-season as you were winning championships. What was it like winning a championship under Phil's system vs. Pat Riley's system. Instead we were met with "Dwayne was cool" and "Kobe was spoiled. And he wanted to be top dog and there could only be one" blah blah blah.
Listen to "Michael Jordan and the World he Made". GREAT book.
Yep. The Narrator sounded like a 7 feet dumbbell.
I just wanted to know what advice he'd give to all of us to be successful in whatever fields we're in.
Even a gossip book like the "Jordan Rules" you could extract such information from.
This book is a waste of time. Maybe we'll get a better biography from Shaq when he's passed and we can look at his career through the lens of nostalgia and hindsight.
I would not recommend this bio
The beginning was interesting and then as the book read on it was more and more difficult to listen to. Boring I guess. Iam sure Shaq is a nice person and seemingly very generous, but the book was slow and the same things again and again were talked about..
Maybe a different Narrator would of sounded better
no!! Enough said!!
