Editorial Reviews

Review

Shaq was the most unique player in the history of the NBA. He was bigger than life in every way. The dominant game, the dominant personality, his work behind the scenes for charity...nobody has done more for our game than Shaq.

Hall of Famer Larry Bird

Shaq was more confident in his skin than anyone else of his stature. There's a warmth to him that is unmistakable. At the same time, he was the scariest player I've ever seen. He was that dominant. I've had a number of great relationships with great players, but he's the one who will always stand out in my mind.
Hall of Famer Jerry West


He's the most dominant player I've ever seen. His presence, his physicality, his size and his speed made him an athletic phenomenon. He could run, he could move, he had unbelievable hands and he never got enough credit for being a great passer. He was one of a kind.—Boston Celtics head coach Doc Rivers

Shaq's a wonderful person and he's been one of the greatest players ever. He understood the game; dealing with the fans, dealing with the press. .. Great, great player, a great, great personality.

Hall of Famer Charles Barkley

What a career for Shaq Diesel!! The most dominating force to ever play the game. Great person to be around as well. Comedy all the time!!—LeBron James, via Twitter

He's a giant. He's physically imposing; he has an imposing smile. In the game, he imposed his will, and he has done it for quite a long time. It's been a great run here, and we're going to miss him greatly. We hope we can find ways to keep him involved in the game.

NBA Commissioner David Stern

As a lifetime fan of Shaq's since his days at LSU... not only for what he accomplished on the court... but also for his childlike enthusiasm... and even though I'm older than "SHAQ"... as a single Father I used his respect and honor for his parents as a teaching tool for my young son. With that being said I still owe a completely unbiased review for all the people out there who are considering whether to buy this book or not. First of all the average person has to wonder if "Shaq"'s second autobiography in ten years logically makes sense to purchase. Obviously the facts of his life up to 2001 haven't changed. In my opinion it would have made more sense to start this book off more as a sequel to his earlier autobiography than another autobiography, because anyone that has followed "SHAQ"'s life knows that there has been more than enough success... intrigue... controversy... and all around entertainment in the last ten years to fill two more books.

There are two categories of people who might buy this book... "SHAQ" fans... and non-"SHAQ" fans. The reason I mention that, is if you love and enjoy "SHAQ"-Daddy... you'll read most of his comments knowing and imagining "SHAQ"'s big giant goofy smile is imbedded between every sentence. If you're not an unabashed "SHAQ"-Diesel fan... you'll probably find much of the commentary massively egotistical. (Or as my dear departed Mother used to say to me: "Don't break your arm patting yourself on the back!") "SHAQ" constantly brags about the money he's made... the houses he's bought... the cars he's bought. Oh man! The cars he's bought... and the egomaniacal reasons he bought most of them.

FOR EXAMPLE: One day after practice while still sweaty and wearing sweats he stops by a Rolls Royce dealership and is looking at a beautiful Bentley.

There's nothing negative to say about this book. The narrative flow is great, Shaquille is a very entertaining storyteller and the stories he has to tell are both very informative and fun. The book does not center about the controversies with Kobe, his run-ins with Pat Riley or gossip on LeBron; those are there too, but Shaq is always fair and gives you both sides of the coin. His personality shines in the book and it certainly helps that he was such a multi-talented person, and not just a basketball star. I always respected him as a basketball legend and thought he was a goofball, but after this book I'm a fan.

Since I'm not much of a sports buff myself, my sports "knowledge" is pretty much limited to the opinions of my husband over the years, and maybe I'm just imagining it, but it seems like former and current players sometimes switch between his "like" and "don't like" lists! I couldn't remember which list Shaq was on when Christmas 2011 rolled around and it was time for my annual sports-themed book selections for his Christmas gifts (my hubby always claimed - after having a bit of a tough time focusing in school - that he didn't like reading... that all changed when I started giving him one basketball-themed book, one football-themed book, and one baseball-themed book at Christmas, and he discovered he really DID enjoy reading - when it was a topic he was interested in!) This was my basketball selection that year, and he really did enjoy it. (I've always thought Shaq - what little I've seen of him in interviews, while commentating, etc. - was a pretty humorous guy, so I figured regardless of which of my husband's "lists" he was on, the book would probably be humorous as well. I was right! And don't we wives just love it when we're right?)

This was a fantastic book describing Shaquille O'neals life from start to finish. I must say that even though his father was extremely tough on him as a child, he made sure Shaq stayed on the right path. His father was a funny guy as well as you will discover during the beginning stages of this book. This book also changed some of my views on Kobe Bryant because I realized their relationship wasn't as dramatic as the mainstream media made it out to be. It was far from perfect but you need to read the book in order to understand that statement. I also respect the fact that Shaq has always dedicated himself to giving back to his community. Check it out.

Shaq is frank in his recollection of his career. Humorous and open-minded story-telling. Would recommend to all who follow sports in general and the NBA in particular.
