One of Amazon's Best Books of the Year: Sports & Outdoors

One of Chicago Public Library's Best Books of 2014

A Goodreads Choice Award Finalist: History and Biography

"In his thoughtful, extraordinarily well--researched biography "Michael Jordan: The Life," Roland Lazenby... gives us the life and much more.... The exhaustive narrative of Jordan's basketball career is written with appropriate awe. But what makes this portrayal especially worthwhile is everything else."--Mike Greenberg, New York Times Book Review

"Lazenby's thoroughly enjoyable biography is an impressive portrait of a man consumed by his competitive ambitions. It is also by far the most complete book on Michael Jordan to date.... Essential reading for all sports fans and particularly for those interested in American cultural history and popular culture."--Library Journal (starred review)

"What makes this portrayal especially worthwhile is the long trail Lazenby follows before the awesome career even begins."--New York Times Book Review's "Editor's Choice"

"It's not every day that I'm blown away by a book about a sports figure. But MICHAEL JORDAN: THE LIFE, by Roland Lazenby, ranks up there with the very best: The Boys of Summer by Roger Kahn, Friday Night Lights by Buzz Bissinger, and Joe DiMaggio by Richard Ben Cramer. The depth of reporting, his frequent ascent into poetry, and his intelligent analysis of the life of this complicated, fascinating American icon deserve Pulitzer Prize consideration. For the first time I understand what makes Michael Jordan tick. I was captivated, fascinated and beguiled from beginning to end."--Peter Golenbock, New York Times-bestselling author of George and In the Country of Brooklyn

"Lazenby looks beyond the on-court exploits of a sports and cultural icon to find the complicated, and often contradictory, man behind the myth."--ESPN Holiday Gift Guide

"Studded with insights."--Kirkus Reviews

"Resplendent... A definitive, multidimensional portrait of a man and a legend, and a notable contribution to sports literature."--Miriam Tuliao, BookReporter

"Lazenby is one of the best, most thoughtful and thorough people writing books on the NBA today, which makes all his books fascinating reads and great looks at the psychology of teams and great players. His stuff is must read."--Kurt Helin, NBC Sports' Pro Basketball Talk

"Lazenby's prose soars as dramatically and excitingly as does his subject. Jordan appeared to fly through the air; Lazenby makes time fly as readers immerse themselves in an extraordinarily competitive life. Does any biography deserve 700 pages? When you read Lazenby's Michael Jordan: The Life you'll be hard-pressed to answer anything but yes."--Michael Levin, New York Journal of Books

"An utterly definitive biography.... The most comprehensive attempt yet made to explain the factors that have gone into producing the most famous basketball player and marketing phenom in the history of world sports....I don't know how it would be possible to write a more complete biography of him."--The Chicago Tribune
