Even as a non-fan of the WNBA, this story really hit home! LL's different, sometimes heartbreaking stories were really an eye-opener into the life of someone who is constantly facing opposition-- LL is a true inspiration!

I was appalled but utterly intrigued when she recollected the story about her own SISTER trying to steal Lisa's identity!

From an athletic role-model to a stunning fashionista, LL has been through it all and I'm glad that she joined forces with Larry Burnett to create a great read!

Lisa Leslie's bio/memoir is not just another story of an athlete's rise from hard times to good luck. This is the story of a woman's ruthless determination to honor the gifts and talents God has given her. There is no luck involved... just pure, unadulterated hard work, a loyal personal and professional support network and God's blessings.

DON'T LET THE LIPSTICK FOOL YOU is one of those rare bios that shares the good, the bad and the ugly while inspiring each of us to follow our own journey, working through the dross to get to the silver, then the gold. From a latchkey home in Compton, California to the Olympic Stadiums in Atlanta, Georgia and Sidney, Australia, Lisa Leslie has traveled the road of disappointment, hardship, and betrayal to become a champion in her personal and professional lives.

Leslie has earned the admiration and respect of many of her peers, as evidenced in the foreword by Earvin "Magic" Johnson; but she has earned mine through the sheer diligence, hard work and integrity that not only resonates through her life, but through the precious pages of her uplifting story. DON'T LET THE LIPSTICK FOOL YOU is definitely a keeper.

"Don't Let The Lipstick Fool You" is a must-read. Lisa Leslie is an amazingly interesting person and her many roles as a model, pro-athlete, Olympian, and the plethora of others makes this book impossible to put down.

Anyone who's a WNBA fan of any team other than the LA Sparks knows that the Sparks have gained the reputation of being the team you "love to hate"! But also, as a WNBA fan you have to give credit and your respect to all the women who have been responsible for the love and excitement we have for the league. They have blazed the trail for all the young talents we see today.

Lisa Leslie is definitely one of those women. In her book, "Don't Let The Lipstick Fool You", you will get a better view of Lisa the person as well as the athlete. She shares her life, her beliefs, and her career. I truly enjoyed the book and highly recommend it to any WNBA fan.

Lisa Leslie blessed my spirit with this book. Her willingness to share her tough times as well as her well known great times come together to give any basketball player in the making hope.She makes it clear that although we face different struggles in life you must keep going forward and never give up on your dreams.Her life is a great example of how to be bold and go for what you believe it.I highly recommend this book!

I enjoyed the book Don't Let the Lipstick Fool You by Lisa Leslie. The book was written in a lot of detial and did not lack anything. I learned a lot about her childhood and also why she's the way she is today. My sister and mother also enjoyed the book also and I feel that this is a great book for anyone to pick up and read.

As a long-time WNBA and NCAAW hoops fan, I was eager to read Lisa Leslie's memoir. I was not disappointed. She doesn't spare herself as she reports on her challenges growing up in a single-parent household.

She was much more at home on the basketball court. It's shocking to think she might have played for Tennessee if she hadn't had a horrendous racially charged experience in Shelbyville, TN, just before her campus visit. I hadn't followed the coaching changes at USC and the Sparks, but Leslie shows how te team responded to those challenges.

While some fans will enjoy her detailed description of her fairytale romance and birth of her first child, I'd have liked to see less about her current family even more about basketball. After all, we didn't pick up this book to learn about a normal upscale family in the 21st century. I suspect that 99% of this book's readers are WNBA fans who want to go behind the scenes.

There we're disappointed, Lisa's very careful not to "dish." The only conflict she describes is related to Lauren Jackson, a player I recognize from living in Seattle and being a Storm fan. Yes, I've been in the crowd chanting, "Beat LA" and clapping along with everybody else.

We do hear about Lisa Leslie's long friendship with Dawn Staley. I remember Dawn being interviewed just before the WNBA champtionship game with Charlotte vs LA. The interviewer asked, "You call each other every week. What about this week?" Dawn said tersely, "No friends during a tournament." Lisa doesn't add much more.

I would like to hear more about Lisa's interactions with the younger stars, such as Diana Taurasi, and the veterans, like the legendary Teresa Weatherspoon.
