"A master class in settling scores, or creating new
ones."--The New York Times
"Pippen offers an intriguing take on one of the NBA's greatest dynasties, [his] youth as the youngest of 12 children in a family ripped by tragedy, and his unlikely ascent to basketball greatness. Expect all the sports talking heads to be in full cry when this much-hyped memoir hits the shelves."--Booklist
"The Chicago Bulls stalwart tells all--and then some. Pippen also writes evenhandedly of the world outside basketball: "No matter how many championships I have won, and millions I have earned, I never forget the color of my skin and that some people in this world hate me just because of that." Closely observed and uncommonly modest."--Kirkus
