Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for The Sixth Man
“The best basketball memoir since Bill Russell’s Go up for Glory...a sports memoir for the ages.”Booklist (starred review) 

“Iguodala's story is a compelling and important one that provides a glimpse into what people of color face, from little boys to the height of stardom, in a country ‘designed to wreak absolute havoc on the confidence of black people.’”—Shelf Awareness

“A true insider’s perspective of the Warriors’ championship teams.”Library Journal 

“A fascinating look at the intersection of class, race and basketball.”Axios

“A riveting read by one of the NBA’s sharpest minds.”Forbes

“A deeply personal look at Iguodala’s life growing up in Springfield, Ill., with his single mother and brother, who he says taught him how to be a defender early on. In reflective, conversational prose, Iguodala recounts his early awareness of segregation and racism, the strength and influence of the strong women in his life (and later, coaches), and his gradual realization of how to best harness his intelligence, ambition and drive.”Datebook

5.0 out of 5 stars I read this book in one sitting. Couldn't put it down.
By Daniel Thompson on June 30, 2019
I grew up in what you might naturally call white Springfield, IL. My address barely made it within the city limits, and I went to school K-12 in a neighboring bedroom community. The first time I can remember having an extended interaction with black people was when my 7th grade basketball team faced off against Franklin Middle School (Where Andre went to school and played basketball). My house was only 15 minutes away from Franklin.

Andre Iguodala and I both grew up in the same town. But we didn't. Andre draws a vivid picture of what it meant to grow up as a young black man in a small midwestern city, and what it meant for him to transcend the life cycle of getting stuck where you grew up. His story is full of the lessons he learned, and how he grew into a professional who is confident with his place on the court and in the world.

In a media cycle that gobbles up stories and spits out hot takes, it's clear that Andre words are marinated not microwaved. As a 15-year NBA veteran he has experienced the full gamut of life under the public microscope. The narratives we live by and use to interpret the stories of professional athletes may be popular, but that doesn't necessarily make them true. In "The Sixth Man" you will hear a compelling example of why it's important that the main characters in our narrative arcs deserve a chance to share their own perspectives.

You'll be better for reading this book. My appreciation and interest in Andre has always been high because we grew up in the same midwestern city. Now that appreciation has only deepened, and I have a more complete picture of the city I grew up in.

Grabbed the book and couldn’t put it down until it was finished l! Andre Iguodala is such an amazing person, aside from being a phenomenal player, he’s an inspiration all together. Mr Iguodala thank you very much for giving it your everything and I have to say that I was really sad that the GSW has to trade you. It doesn’t really matter as you have reached immortality as part of that team.
