Format: Paperback
This book is one of the best written sports novels I have ever read. Stauth takes you inside the first Dream Team. His style of writing makes you feel like you were right next to Jordan and Pippen in 1992. He takes the reader on a behind the scenes journey and shows the conflicts and other problems the Dream Team faced before and during their gold medal run.

Cameron Stauth is a tireless writer and this book must have taken him quite a while to collaborate. It is a deep, educated look into the greatest sports team ever assembled and the politics, humor, sarcasm, and wit is top notch. Just a great read for basketball fans, you will never think of those superstars the same way ever again. Highly recommended.

This is one of the best books on basketball I have ever read. The Dream Team consisted of the best players ever to play basketball. The author takes us deep into the minds of the players, and how the Dream Team was selected. Each player selected is given his own chapter.

Anyone who is a fan of the NBA should read this book. You'll have a much greater understanding on what went on behind the scenes of the greatest basketball team in history.

I agree with the other reviewers that Cameron Stauth's book is a heckuva entertaining read. There is no doubt that Stauth's book revolves around Earvin "Magic" Johnson and how he handles his recently discovered status as being HIV-positive. In that regard, the author presents Johnson in a very fair and consistent manner, where he certainly isn't flawless but he was truly the heart and soul of the 1992 U.S. Men's Olympic basketball team (aka "the Golden Boys") (aka "the Dream Team"). The major supporting storylines feature Dream Teamers Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, and Charles Barkley, as they each have their own complicated issues affecting their careers.

Stauth effectively (and cleverly) weaves in biographical material about each of the players, as he explores the team's selection process, the 1992 NBA season, and the various hijinks before and during the Olympics. Of particular note, the section about how head coach Chuck Daly and his assistants were selected through backroom politics seemed very plausible, if not amusing. Another highlight is the early section about an incredible "anything goes" shoot-around game of H-O-R-S-E between Johnson, Jordan, Scottie Pippen, Clyde Drexler, and Chris Mullin. Stauth's reporting here seems top notch, as he describes it so well that you can easily visualize it in front of your eyes.

The only hazard light I wish to mention about this book is Stauth's frequent tendency to get inside a player's head and describe what he thinks or is feeling. I suspect that no Dream Teamer (let alone any high-end pro athlete) would realistically be that candid with any sports journalist.
