John's autobiography was as simple and humble as he always seemed to be. He goes into great detail explaining his take on the limelight, which is only one of many topics that shed more light on his life and career than probably any other source ever has. One particular topic, his love of his family, struck special chords for me personally.

You're not going to get a raw history of the game of basketball according to John. You're not going to get too many juicy details of players at the time. You're not going to get a self-serving account of his accolades. On the contrary, you will get to see players as John saw them: friends, people, and competitors with real lives and feelings. You will rarely hear of an accolade; instead, you will get an account of all the work he put in.

If you want the story of a flashy athlete, complete with scandal, money, and sex, this is not the auto-biography for you.
If you want to hear about the values of hard work, friendship, and family this is for you.
If you just want more insight on the best pure point guard to ever play basketball, this is definitely for you.

When you see a gifted athlete who appears to be highly disciplined, it's easy to project your own sensibilities upon them. This is not always accurate, as was so painfully revealed by Tiger Woods. Well, this is not the case with John. His values are so well prioritized and he lives those values. This book is an extended "thank you" to all those who helped him to get him where he is, but is a little lopsided because he is so humble that those achievements that he was primarily responsible for he doesn't really give himself the credit he deserves. I guess I shouldn't be surprised.

What a treat to be able to share in his private life and his philosophy. I really appreciate his being so forthcoming.

5 STARS

I found myself reading and enjoying to get to know more about the player John Stockton. It also brought lots of memories to my mind.
Like the shot that sent them to the finals. Had to wear purple that week. How when I used to watch the Jazz games my little girl loved it when they announced Stockton to Malone.

This is a easy to follow book. I did not want to put it down. I liked how hard he worked and the values that John Stockton has. It shows some good insights in life lessons.

This is a book for sports fans, for inspiring people of all ages to go for your dreams with hard work. For the young and old. For men and woman to enjoy. I think a broad range of people will enjoy John's story.

As a fan of Jazz basketball thank you for your hard work. We are glad you played in Utah for so long. You represented the Jazz and USA Dream teams well.

I admit to stop watching the Jazz after you than Karl left. It was not as much fun without you.
I liked getting to know your family better and how important they are to you. Thanks for letting us see your journey and meeting your friends.

I liked the background of how much it meant to be on the Olympics team meant for you. I find it hard to believe that no one recognized you in Spain. Especially wearing a t-shirt with your picture on it.

It was fun to see the pictures. Hear the stories and see how technology is changing the game. Too see how much you love the game and how it was always watching and learning to be better.

I was given this ebook to read by NetGalley and Shadow Mountain Publishing and asked in return to give honest review of it.

This is an exceptional book. John's story is proof that with dedication to core values and hard work dreams can come true. This is so much more than a basketball book. A must read even if you are not a sports fan.

Format: Paperback
My husband thoroughly enjoyed this book... though I've never been a sports-inclined person myself, he's the complete opposite, and over the course of our marriage, there are certain athletes of whom he's spoken extra enthusiastically about - Mr. Stockton is one of those people. Each year at Christmas, I'll purchase a few sports-related books (usually biographies or autobiographies), trying to recall people he's mentioned, and when I saw this book I knew it'd be a winner. My husband had never been a "book person", having struggled in school, so it was a surprise to him (and a delight for me) to realize how much he enjoyed reading when the subject interested him! Each night he'd share with me an observation or two from the book, and though I didn't read it myself (the 5 stars are from him), I can say that Mr. Stockton is every bit the quality individual I'd always heard my husband describing him as. He tells me this book is definitely on his "re-read" list.

It's about time we get an autobiography to get to know John a little bit better. This takes me back to the glory days when the Jazz were in the finals when I was in Junior High. I only wish I could have realized back then how truly great he was, Like many Jazz fans, I took John for granted because I hadn't known anything different. He is a perfect example of what it is to be a good man.
