Overall an excellent book from start to finish. I honestly wish the book was longer. Similar to Michael Jordan's book, you get the prelude and family history of Kobe Bryant. Starting from Joe "Jellybean" Bryant and his turbulent start with the Philadelphia 76ers as a hometown star, up to the final game of Kobe Bryant, scoring 60 points giving his final speech as a Laker. This book covers all peaks and valleys of Kobe's life, from the notorious rape case, infidelity rumors, divorce proceedings, and family relationship, or lack thereof.
Feuds covered include: Shaq, Phil Jackson, D12 (lightly), family members.
What I love most about 'Showboat', is that it holds no punches. Lazenby addresses the flaws as well as the accolades in a blunt tone. He goes behind the scenes and gives a different camera angle of Kobe that us fans don't see. You see the great, good, bad, ugly and awful. He cuts out all of the salacious unnecessary details, but describes the facts in vivid words without censoring the truth. Lazenby could've went on tangent's that were unnecessary, but he remained on point with the important parts. 'Showboat' is a piece of work that will leave you educated about the complexity of such an enigmatic legend. You will admire his mental tenacity and stubborn will, while also hate it at times.
An absolute must read for all lovers of sports biographies.
