This is the unvarnished first-person story of the greatest
all-around player in basketball history. It's also one of the
most forceful testaments you'll ever read. The Big O pulls
no punches, and has the facts and figures to back him up.
The man who changed the game, on the court and in the
courts, was also a prime mover in the social changes of
the 50s and 60s. Like most trailblazers, he paid a steep
price, but society, the game and its players -- especially
the players -- are richer for his contributions. Those who've been led to believe that the NBA began with Michael Jordan are especially urged to read this book! P.S. It makes a great gift. Order now in time for Christmas.
