Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Every once in a while listeners are given the opportunity to add a true "find" to their collections: something well produced, entertaining, timely, controversial, yet fun and inexpensive. Reilly's interview with Charles Barkley fits the bill. Check it out! Rap narrative introductions, music, sound effects, all surrounding a fast-paced, far-ranging, one-on-one between sports journalist and superstar. Production values, packaging, and pricing make this hard to resist. Meet Sir Charles Barkley, the earliest declared candidate in the 1998 Alabama governor's race, a terror on the basketball court, and so much more. Not a basketball fan? No problem: if you've heard the name or seen any of his athletic shoe commercials, you'll enjoy this. Some serious talk about the sports industry, racism, and a trace of adult language round out a rewarding production. Recommended for most popular collections.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The whole book consists of quotes from Barkley grouped by category, such as race, basketball, Phoenix, etc... I guess the other person who wrote a review is not a fan of Barkley, but this book contains some funny and witty quotes that show Barkley's strong opinions about various issues, people, etc.. If you enjoy watching Barkley on TNT I don't see why you wouldn't like this book.

This book is way too short. Many topics are covered and the reader gets exactly what they paid for -- the 100% Truth from Charles Wade Barkley. I thoroughly enjoyed watching him play basketball and now listening to him on TV. He lives by the philosophy that I live by -- don't ask me the question, unless you are prepared for the answer. So many of us are patronized and this is insulting. Reality is the truth and Charles tells it like it is. Sir Charles makes a perfect bathroom book or a qucik pick me up. I wish he'd write another book!!!!

I found the book to be funny, candid and honest. Anyone who has seen and heard Barkley in the past would expect this type of humor. Anyone can read this. You do not have to be a sports fan.

If you try to read this book ( I could not ) You will know why you can buy it for a penny. And that may be over charging.
