About the Author

Born Ronald William Artest Jr. on Nov. 13, 1979, in Queensbridge, New York, Artest changed his name to Metta World Peace in September 2011, in an effort to encourage dialogue over physical violence, and promote good will toward all. He is the father of four children. World Peace was signed to a five-year contract by the LA Lakers as a free agent on July 8, 2009 and has been playing professional basketball in the NBA since 1999. He was selected to the 2005-06 NBA’s All-Defensive Team, was voted by the media as 2003-04 NBA’s Defensive Player of the Year, and was the only man with 271 steals in his first two seasons in the NBA, breaking Michael Jordan’s record. He won his first NBA World Championship with the LA Lakers in June, 2010, and received the J. Walter Kennedy Citizenship Award – the NBA’s highest citizenship and community service honor – in April 2011. World Peace won his first World Championship ring on June 17th, 2010, after the Lakers defeated the Boston Celtics in Game 7 of the 2010 NBA Finals. World Peace has remained an active contributor in his hometown and in cities of organizations for which he has played, and has worked simultaneously in global regions that require urgent humanitarian aid. He formed a nonprofit in August 2007, entitled “Xcel University,” to officially organize and streamline his charitable contributions and community endeavors under one umbrella. World Peace became a spokesman in the PETA’s (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) A.B.C. (Animal Birth Control) campaign in 2007, which is ongoing today. In fall 2010, World Peace decided to raffle off his 2010 NBA World Championship Ring, with the proceeds going to his nonprofit, Xcel University. The online ring raffle, which concluded on December 25, 2010, raised $651,006. Funds raised through the ring raffle were donated to nonprofits that provide mental health therapists and mental health services to their communities, in cities including Indianapolis, Los Angeles, Cleveland, New York, Little Rock, AR and the central Tennessee region. World Peace also helped Congresswoman Napolitano launch "The Mental Health in Schools Act" and made visits to Washington, D.C. in February 2011 and February 2013 to encourage congressional members to vote for the Act, which would increase mental health services available for children.

Format: Paperback
After huddling my daughters, wife, pets, and neighbors for a reading of Ron (Metta)'s Bedtime stories, I came to the conclusion our children's library is now complete. Not entirely sure the author could read, let alone write, I was very pleased to see the supporting cast of literate adults involved in the production of this tome of bedtime stories. Suffice it to say, the pedantic nature of the author's tone lends itself to countless readings, each yielding new life lessons to be shared with ones' loved ones. Far be it from me, an avid bibliophile, to lend an idea to a literary artist such as Artest (amazing just how close those are, rather poetic), but I would be smitten if he would consider some additional stories for Bedtime Stories 2, which we in my house are on pins and needles waiting for. I'd be ecstatic to share with my family some stories like: "Detroit: the Malice in the Palace", "Concussing James Harden", or "Gouging J.J. Barea"! Those stories would write themselves onto the page, into America's hearts, and gently lull the masses to a simple, sweet slumber at the majestically worded, glorious fabling of Metta's finest moments. Perchance they may be room for a contributing author to grace the pages, such as former teammate Stephen Jackson; "Swingin' for Ron." A must read for anyone who has, or was, a child.

I love the rhyming style and the great cover and illustrations. The stories are very funny and entertaining but most of all, I like the positive message in each one. This book contains perfect bedtime stories to read to children or have them read for themselves. They were also inspiring for me as an adult who is still a child at heart! Metta World Peace has done an outstanding job in writing this book. I donated a copy to my local library and I strongly recommend it to everyone.

Stories told like nobody else can!
With his original, often hilarious, always positive, one-of-a-kind perspective... Metta World Peace delivers a slam dunk with this one!
I bought one for every baby and child in my life, one for myself, and a few spare copies. Just in case!
This book is a winner!

Bought this as a joke and even for that it was disappointing. The quality is horrendous (both the writing and the physical book) and there are very few actual stories. Don't bother with this one.
