Publisher's Summary

Learn the Incredible Story of the Chicago Bulls' Basketball Superstar Jimmy Butler!

In Jimmy Butler: The Inspiring Story of One of Basketball's Best All-Around Shooting Guards, you will learn the inspirational story of one of basketball's premier shooting guards, Jimmy Butler. Since quickly emerging as one of the key leaders of the Chicago Bulls franchise, Jimmy Butler has established himself as one of the best two-way players to play in today's game. While Derrick Rose was the leader of the Chicago Bulls for the first few years of Butler's career, it could be argued that Butler has since become the main leader of the Bulls when Rose unfortunately came down with a series of tough injuries.

Once overlooked in the NBA Draft, as Butler was drafted with the 30th overall pick in 2011, Butler has proven all the scouts wrong on their initial assessments of his abilities, as Butler had demonstrated a high degree of athleticism, basketball intelligence, and influence over games. It will be interesting to watch as Jimmy Butler continues to develop his basketball career, what accomplishments he will be able to achieve.

Here is a preview of what is inside this book:

  • Early life and childhood
  • College years (freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior year)
  • Jimmy Butler's NBA career (through halfway of the 2015-2016 season)
  • Butler's personal life
  • Jimmy Butler's impact on basketball
  • Butler's legacy and future

Very detailed account of Jimmy Butler's life

I was very pleased with this book. I'm a die-hard Chicago sports fan and enjoy learning more about my favorite players. This book is VERY detailed and chronicles Jimmy's professional progression from High School to the pros with just the right amount of background info to keep the story in proper context.

Outside of a few players names being mispronounced (Paul Gasol comes to mind), the narration was very good and fit well with this sports based audio. Overall a very pleasant and informative experience!

I was provided this audiobook at no charge in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.

Good Storyteller, Needs more Story

Any additional comments?

As a Bulls Fan, I was curious about one of the star players. While this book provided a cursory review of Butler’s life and his difficult childhood, I was left wanting more. The writing felt clipped and overly simple, but that may be for children to also read the story. Otherwise, I enjoyed the narration and I will keep a look out for an update on this book since Butler will undoubtedly continue being one of the greatest NBA players.
