"Individual chapters on six stars incorporate player quotes, human-interest anecdotes, career highlights, and personal struggles. George Mikan, Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Magic Johnson, John Stockton, and Michael Jordan are refreshingly portrayed as human beings and extraordinary athletes. Black-and-white photos accompany a well-documented and highly readable text."
