Description

Playing for Keeps is the first book to recount Michael Jordan's entire exhilarating basketball career, from his victorious high school beginnings to his coming-of-age at the University of North Carolina under Coach Dean Smith and his triumphant days with the Bulls. But this is much more than a sports biography; David Halberstam uses the game as a prism to illuminate the larger issues -- American culture, race, Society, history -- that shaped Michael Jordan's extraordinary and heart-stopping story. Recounting not only the scoring records, countless awards, and stellar plays in the Jordan lore, Playing for Keeps is also rich with insight into the other personalities surrounding Jordan on the court, from Dennis Rodman to Coach Phil Jackson. Featuring eight pages of historic photographs, Halberstam's in-depth account fully captures the larger-than-life spirit of this superstar and the millions of fans he enraptures.
