Michael Jordan Book Excerpt:

The definitive biography of a legendary athlete. The Shrug. The Shot. The Flu Game. Michael Jordan is responsible for sublime moments so ingrained in sports history that they have their own names. When most people think of him, they think of his beautiful shots with the game on the line, his body totally in sync with the ball -- hitting nothing but net. But for all his greatness, this scion of a complex family from North Carolina's Coastal Plain has a darker side: he's a ruthless competitor and a lover of high stakes. There's never been a biography that encompassed the dual nature of his character and looked so deeply at Jordan on and off the court -- until now. Basketball journalist Roland Lazenby spent almost thirty years covering Michael Jordan's career in college and the pros. He witnessed Jordan's growth from a skinny rookie to the instantly recognizable global ambassador for basketball whose business savvy and success have millions of kids still wanting to be just like Mike. Yet Lazenby also witnessed the Michael Jordan whose drive and appetite are more fearsome and more insatiable than any of his fans could begin to know. Michael Jordan: The Life explores both sides of his personality to reveal the fullest, most compelling story of the man who is Michael Jordan. Lazenby draws on his personal relationships with Jordan's coaches; countless interviews with Jordan's friends, teammates, and family members; and interviews with Jordan himself to provide the first truly definitive study of Michael Jordan: the player, the icon, and the man.

Michael Jordan Book Excerpt:

A kinetic graphic biography about Michael “Air” Jordan, the greatest basketball player of all time and most influential athlete in history, from the creator of the acclaimed and best-selling 21: The Story of Roberto Clemente. This tour-de-force graphic biography explores basketball superstar Michael Jordan’s public successes and private struggles, with Santiago’s passion for his subject shining through on every full-color page. At the age of 19, Jordan scored the winning jump shot in the final seconds of the 1982 NCAA Championship, earning him the moniker “Air.” He was drafted by the Chicago Bulls in 1984, a team with a decade of failure. By 1991, Jordan led the Bulls to their first NBA championship, besting Magic Johnson and the L.A. Lakers. In 1992, Michael Jordan joined the Dream Team, an assembly of 12 legendary NBA players who steamrolled everyone at the Barcelona Olympics and brought the gold back home. Despite taking a season off to try his hand at professional baseball, Jordan still led the Bulls to three consecutive NBA Championships. However, his life is not without controversies or calamities, and no amount of success or money can shield him from it. But everyone wanted to be like Mike, and Santiago comes closer than anyone to putting you on the parquet floor of the Chicago’s United Center in your very own pair of Air Jordans.

Michael Jordan Biography Book Excerpt:

Michael Jordan Biography - The Complete Life Story and Biography of Michael Jordan Some players from the city of Chicago, Illinois, became well-known in their respective sports. They've all achieved personal achievement and are Hall of Famers in their respective leagues and sports. During their playing careers, some of them even won a championship or two. Walter Payton of the National Football League's Bears, Ernie "Mr. Cub" Banks of Major League Baseball, and Bobby "Golden Jet" Hull of the Blackhawks are among these athletes. During his 15 years with the Chicago Bulls in the National Basketball Association, however, no other athlete had ever earned as many awards as Michael Jordan. Jordan will always be remembered for wearing the red and black of Chicago, joining the list of aforementioned Chicago sports superstars, despite only playing two years of his career with the Washington Wizards. A bronze sculpture of Jordan's signature "jumpman" position stands in front of the United Center, which many regard to be the house that Jordan built, over 20 years after his final season with the Bulls. Many people in Chicago will never forget his name because he was responsible for six titles in the 1990s. His classic number 23 uniform is still worn by many admirers. As the Bulls strive to reclaim their heyday from 20 years ago, current stars like Derrick Rose are held to the same standards. There's a reason Jordan had one of the best NBA careers of all time, and one of the best professional sports careers of all time. Clothing, pop culture, film, music, and other sports, like as baseball, all bear his name. But it all started with his basketball achievements, which include more than 32,000 points, six Most Valuable Player trophies, and several individual honors for both offense and defense. Basketball "has been everything," Jordan once declared. “It's my safe haven, the location where I've always gone when I needed comfort and calm. It's been the location of excruciating anguish as well as exhilarating delight and happiness." But his brilliance went well beyond individual championships and even NBA Finals trophies. Jordan was responsible for a number of unforgettable events that NBA fans still discuss today. Few players have 50- point games or play in a crucial championship game while suffering from a stomach virus, dubbed the "Flu Game." The nicknames were numerous - Air Jordan for his dunking; His Airness for his airness; and Money for his ability to consistently score 20 or more points. He was also a sure-fire assurance of giving fans something unique every night. In the 1990s, everyone wanted to "be like Mike" because of his scoring prowess, championship wins, and work ethic.

Michael Jordan and the New Global Capitalism New Edition Book Excerpt:

Walter LaFeber's timely analysis looks at the ways that triumphant capitalism, coupled with high-tech telecommunications, is conquering the nations of the world, one mind—one pair of feet—at a time. With Michael Jordan and the New Global Capitalism, Walter LaFeber has written a biography, a social history, and a far-ranging economic critique. From basketball prodigy to international phenomenon to seductive commercial ideal, Michael Jordan is the supreme example of how American corporations have used technology in a brave, massively wired new world to sell their products in every corner of the globe. LaFeber's examination of Nike and its particular dominion over the global marketplace is often scathing, while his fascinating mini-biography of Michael Jordan and the commercial history of basketball reveal much about American society. For this new paperback edition, LaFeber has added a chapter on globalization in a changed world, after mass protests and since September 11. "Bold, riveting....Brilliantly illuminates how hyper-US capitalism has spread its financial wings around the globe."—Douglas Brinkley "LaFeber brings an impressive intellect to bear on his subject."—Barbara Rudolph, Chicago Tribune
