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.

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?)

Before I read this book, I expected it to be Shaquille O'Neal bragging about his awards as a professional basketball player. However this was a great story of perseverance and working for something bigger than yourself. O'Neal does an amazing job of describing the hard work and dedication it takes to be the best. The book reveals the hardships someone, even someone as talented as O'Neal, has to go through to reach the top. Any basketball fan would greatly enjoy this story of a kid from Newark making it. O'Neal brings the reader into the life on a NBA player and the mental and physical toughness it takes to be successful in the League. This book is not only a great story, but it is an inspiration to follow ones dreams.

This book was very good. If you are a fan of Shaq and especially if you've never read his older autobiography, this book is excellent. Shaq being Shaq ,honest, arrogant, funny. I strongly recommend this book ,even if you dont like sports stars autobiographies, cause its diffrent. Its pure Shaq-speaking there ,very informal word not anything fancy as if shaq is there in person having a conversation with you. Very easy for no mothertongue-English speakerslike me. I had to look up in the dictionary very few times in comparison to other books that use very formal language and vocabulary. This one you'll read it easy without having to open up Oxford Advanced Learners Dictionary.

I've bought this book because, been a fan of such a huge personality, I was curious to learn more about his life. It was better that expected: it's the real Shaq from the be inning to the end, so honest and frank both when recalling triumphs and when facing with setbacks and downs (yes, there were some in Shaq life too).
A character that has not only had an impact on pro basketball, but also outside the court. Hilarious inside the locker room, serious and available when it was time to help others.
Shaq Uncut: highly recommended to his basketball fans, even strongly recommended if you want to know the REAL Shaq.

I have to say that the market for this book is somewhat narrow but for basketball fans, LSU fans and people that just love Shaq's personality this is a really nice autobiography. It is not just basketball but also a lot on his background and his varied pursuits outside of the sport - being in the police, his continued education, his reality show etc. Shaq dishes out some dirt with regard to people in his life he had trouble with and high praise for people he admires. For a sports autobiography it is pretty good.
