LeBron James: The Inspiring Story of One of Basketball's Greatest Players is an inspiring tale that talks of LeBron’s rise from the poverty stricken streets of Akron, to his meteoric rise as an NBA superstar who is recognized globally today. LeBron has addressed various issues from his life, such as the lack of a father figure growing up, and the challenge of handling media with the knowledge that millions are looking up to you. It also closely follows LeBron’s basketball career, starting with his middle school AAU tournaments, his high school career and his immediate breakout into the NBA, forever changing the basketball hierarchy that’s previously existed. The book also touches on his family life. Even though LeBron is proud about the fact that his mother had raised him well, the lack of the father figure has been missed, and he intends to not do the same for his sons, by always being there for them. Despite all the high praise for LeBron he is without fault: in his career changing decision by joining the Miami Heat in 2010, he has shown more bravado than is needed and took on a villain persona throughout the season, which didn’t end up in his favor. All in all, this book is a must read for LeBron’s fans. It is still a good book for young people and casual basketball fans, as they will be able to relate to this work.
