Tim tells in his first book how he managed to get to mentally train NBA superstars like Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant, Dwayne Wade - these names are top of the top. Think about that intense moment when you’re on the top of a roller coaster, right before it sends you into that wild free fall. You know what’s coming, you know it’s supposed to be scary. Do you scream? Do you panic? Or do you stay calm and fearless because you know you can handle whatever happens next? The difference is what sets you apart from those who give in to the fear and can’t control how they feel. Rare Air: Michael on Michael is an incredibly detailed and personal book from the legendary Michael Jordan. Written in collaboration with Mark Vancil, the book takes readers through Jordan’s life, from his early days as a basketball player to his years as a professional athlete. Jordan’s honest and detailed account of his life is captivating, providing a unique insight into the life and career of the greatest basketball player of all time. The book also features photos from throughout Jordan’s life and career, giving readers an even more intimate look at his life. A must-read for any basketball fan, Rare Air is a definitive look at the life and career of Michael Jordan. Managed Michael Jordan, the greatest player in the world, and got him to embrace selflessness, even if it meant losing a scoring title.

In Michael Jordan: The Life, Lazenby draws on his personal relationships with Jordan’s coaches; countless interviews with Jordan’s friends, teammates, and family members; and interviews with Jordan himself to provide the first truly definitive study of Michael Jordan: the player, the icon, and the man. Playing for Keeps by David Halberstam This basically establishes the alpha male. You create a standard, along with expectations and then are required to meet it every day. Others don’t want that kind of pressure.] But for all his greatness, this scion of a complex family from North Carolina's Coastal Plain has a darker side: he's a ruthless competitor and a lover of high stakes. There's never been a biography that encompassed the dual nature of his character and looked so deeply at Jordan on and off the court -- until now. It’s time to stop listening to what everyone says about you… Let them judge you by your results. It’s none of their business how you get to where you’re going.”Think of the custodian… He calls no attention to himself. No one sees him work. No one knows what he does, but the job always gets done. It has to, so that everyone can do their jobs efficiently. In his own way, he's the most powerful guy in the building. He has unlimited access, knows where everything is and how it all works. He has the keys to every single door. He can go anywhere, unseen. He knows what everyone else is doing, all the dirty little secrets… If you have an emergency, he’s the guy you call.” If you're willing to listen to what I'm asking, tell me what I need to know, and follow what I say, you're going to have some improvement.

I was saddened to read about the struggles he’s faced. His entire life has been dominated by his stardom, which has separated him from his humanity and ability to assume any sort of normal lifestyle. This has resulted in coping mechanisms like excessive gambling. For all the riches and fame he has acquired, MJ seems relationally like the poorest man I’ve ever heard of. I hope there are better, more fulfilling days ahead for him.This book is written by Tim Grover, the one who trained Michael Jordan (and Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade, etc.), who shows how to be the best in the WORLD in various things (whether it be sports, business, etc.). However, doing something like this is VERY costly (as you can imagine). There seems to be a lot of truth in it (as far as achieving that goal), but I struggle to agree that it would be worth it. Grover clearly knows what he's doing, but I disagree with his ultimate goal. His goal is to get people to do things for their own glory and he glosses over what it would cost people to get there. In other words, we clearly disagree on values. However, there are some principles about leadership that people can adopt (i.e. hard work, perseverance, responsibility, etc.). People can get emotional and call you all sorts of names and not like you, but it’s not about that. It’s about people respecting you because you are the BEST at what you do. That’s why you sacrifice like you do. Others just talk about it.] This makes me think of what Jesus said about gaining the whole world, but losing your soul (Matthew 16:26). When someone else says you’ve failed, what they really mean is ‘If that were me, I would feel like a failure.’ Well, that guy’s not you, and he’s obviously not a Cleaner, because Cleaners don’t recognize failure (209). One of the few books Michael Jordan has ever written an editorial review for, Jordan tells readers, “I consider Tim Grover to be second to none in his knowledge of sports training, and he was an invaluable part of my training program. He is a take-charge person, with a deliberate but energetic and enthusiastic technique.”

I was amazed by Jordan’s relentlessness as a competitor. He was truly an assassin on the basketball court. If there was any small chance....000001% chance that you would challenge Jordan’s ability to win or his status as the best, you would be sought out, humiliated, defeated and your reputation stomped on. Michael would then give a great press conference interview after the game to make you look like his inferior in every way. Teammates experienced a mix of awe and fear as he demanded absolute perfection, even in the most mundane practice situations. MJ was the perfect mix of other-worldly athleticism, iron-hard competitiveness, and savvy charisma. Instincts are what matter. Don’t spend forever trying to decide what to do. You ultimately KNOW what you need to do. Don’t talk about it. Do it! Show me! Show yourself! Period.] i didnt dislike anything in this book because there were so many things that related to me on how he loves a sport so much and how he wanted to be successful at it and it gave me more and more ideas on how i can keep loving the game i love.

With his own inspiring words, Michael Jordan, the most extraordinary athlete of our time, shares the rules he has lived and achieved by. Underlying his enormous accomplishments are a set of simple principles that provide the foundation for his entire life. He draws on these to show us all how we can learn to set goals and overcome obstacles, confront fear and self-doubt, commit to our dreams and avoid distraction, be a leader and a team player, master the basics to reach new heights in excellence, and reap the rewards of self-discipline. Relentless by Tim Grover Don’t think. You already know what you have to do. And you know how to do it. What’s stopping you?” Cleaners do the hardest things first, just to show there's no task too big... You usually don’t have to tell them twice.” Michael Jordan is an enigma, probably most of all to himself. He’s a man who has everything that the world could ever offer, and at the same time seems to have little to nothing in his life of true value. The game of basketball gave him everything during his tenure with the Bulls, and then took away everything after his retirement except his fat bank account. In the midst of his “success” he lost his familial relationships and alienated many friends and mentors. Vaccaro went to work for the old foe, Adidas, and signed Kobe Bryant to a major shoe contract straight out of high school. Bryant went on to a stellar 20-year career at the Los Angeles Lakers. It was poetic justice for Vaccaro but he denies feeling any lingering bitterness towards Nike.
