Each chapter focuses on one ingredient in the recipe for success.

    This book was a biography about the legendary athlete that is Michael Jordan, who famed the country with his gravity defying dunks and taking off from outlandish spots of the courts. Captifying the crowd with his multitude of moves, and his ability to perform in the ticking final seconds in the most crucial games. He was so loved that a Denver Nuggets broadcaster during the same time Michael played said; “My wife named a cat after Michael” (Williams 54). If that doesn’t show how lovable Michael was, than nothing does. I personally very much liked reading this book, being born in the 21 century, I was not able to witness the prime Jordan. I really enjoyed learning his methods focus and rituals. Michael shaped his indignity being able to zone out the exterior, and solely focused at that certain moment at the certain. He was amazing at focusing at the now, and not the past or the future. Jordan could've been swayed easily with all the money, all the fame, and the love. But his family and his teammates kept him on the straight and narrow. He had many turning points in life from being born in New York and raised in Chapel hill, Chapel Hill with Dean Smith, and to his amazing NBA career. I personally recommend this book to all athletes, because it gives great incite on how to focus on the moment, and bring the best out of yourself. He would vision himself in the game before the game would start, Pat Williams said “After Georgetown- North Carolina title game in 1982 where Michael hit the winning shot. Mj said “I could see myself hitting the shot. I could see it on the bus, on the way to the game.”

    Michael Jordan's life, as explained by this book, is a model for excellence; and this book is the roadmap on how to achieve that same level of excellence. As I read this book, I marked numerous spots in the book where I asked myself "Ok if Michael did this, then how can I apply this principle to my life?" Since my passions are poetry, journalism, and theology, I told myself, "Ok, since Michael was a gym rat, I should be a Poetry rat, a journalism rat, a blogging rat, a theology rat" -- and I forgot to mention "an economics rat." I should always be doing something to advance on each front, and I should always be giving my best no matter what, whether it's a small competition I'm competing in, a small newspaper I'm writing for, or a small group of people I'm teaching. "To give anything less than your best, is to sacrifice the gift," the late track legend Steve Prefontaine once said. Michael Jordan had that in common with Pre. In fact, Williams notes that MJ felt cheated if you didn't give him your best; and if I recall correctly, he would punish you for it.Of course, Michael Jordan has his flaws, so there are limits to where one should emulate him. One could get a good glimpse of what his mistakes were in his career; but one could also see that MJ quickly learned from them and hardly ever made them again.But where he excels, why not follow him? For those that know me, they know that Allen Iverson was my favorite basketball player growing up. But there's a good reason why Allen Iverson is not where MJ is. "Practice?" Allen Iverson times thought it was optional; Michael Jordan thought it was essential. For that reason, Michael Jordan, whom I remember being one of my favorite basketball players, and if not my favorite basketball player in the Space Jam days (1996), and who eventually fell off of my top players list with the drafting of Allen Iverson to the Philadelphia 76ers that same year, is now my favorite basketball player again. There is just so much to love about MJ.He also made me realize that I shouldn't be emulating people who had huge failures and were nowhere near as successful.Pat Williams and his co-author Michael Weinreb produce some of the best writing around -- lush, descriptive, personal. This is the blueprint bestseller. As a writer, this book has a structure and style I want to emulate. As I wrote in a previous comment, "Pat Williams' writing is superb (I wish I had his vocabulary and his knack for lush descriptions), and this book paints so much color around Michael Jordan's work ethic. I am not halfway done and I am already declaring this one of my favorite books of the year." Now that I am finished, it still is one of my favorite books of the year. I wish I read it when I was at the top of my academic game in elementary school (I had 4.0s all four quarters in late elementary) before it took a small dive. Like Jordan who left the NBA in 1993 because it wasn't a challenge anymore, I let my grades drop because school wasn't challenging anymore. I was bored with it. Reading this book may have helped me, for Michael had a way of inventing challenges, as if he and the Chicago Bulls were down 30 points in his mind when in reality they were really in the lead. I could have learned from that. It's still not too late.There is something about celebrity that points to a man's "otherworldliness," like something from heaven. I noticed that people just reacted so passionately towards Michael when they met him -- from excitement to fainting (similar things were said about another MJ: Michael Jackson) -- and yet the best of them, including Michael Jordan, responded with a legendary humility. To be so God-like to average eyes made me think about how people must have reacted to a 1st century Galilean celebrity who came down from Heaven and dwelt among men (John 1:1-14). Even celebrities, at their greatest, possess something Christlike.Per his mother, a young 12-year old Michael Jordan is quoted as saying, "I'm no good at basketball." And if Jordan didn't think he was, and 6 years later became a high-school all American, why should we doubt ourselves at the beginning of our endeavors. Some of us are blessed enough to think we are good at something and want to achieve greater; we should be humbled, and then we should strive for more. We should set actionable goals. Even Michael Jordan didn't become the legend he is in a day. And since I decided to invoke theology, where did Michael Jordan stand on religion as of 2001, when the book was published? Judging by the book alone, it's not too clear. But we do know this much:""I don't believe in 'if,'" Jordan said. "I think there has always been a plan for my life and that I don't have any control over it. Everything that happens was determined in advance....I read the Bible a lot. I see that whatever happens, happens for a reason."Lastly, MJ had great reverence for the greats before him, and he shied from saying he was the Greatest, because, if I remember correctly, he knew that someone else could do what he did and study the greats before himself and learn from them and himself. But as we all know, that person has his work cut out for him.Other previous comments about the book that I made via "Currently Reading" status updates are below.-"On top of a superior focus, Michael Jordan had a dream. But even more astonishing is that they weren't unrealistic. He didn't, to my knowledge, dream to be Michael Jordan. Rather, he kept all of his goals within reach. His life was a constant succession of little goal after little goal being realized."-"Superb anecdotal information. Jordan was zen-like in his focus, and took advantage of every opportunity to polish his game. As one of his former teammates said, Jordan lived for each day and each moment. One can even say this reflect Jesus' teaching in the Gospel of Matthew: "So do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring worries of its own. Today's trouble is enough for today" (Matthew 6:34)."-"Grant Hill, writing in 2001, makes the point that no one will ever be "like Mike" again. But here is why: MJ has done much for not only basketball, and sports, but also race relations."

    How to Be Like Mike Book ReviewDo you remember as a kid watching Space Jam watching Michael Jordan save and help those former NBA stars get their skills back from those villains wishing to yourself i one day hopefully you can be like Mike but in the book how to be like mike I got to learn the things michael Jordan did to be the best. The author is Pat Williams I think he wrote the book to inform people how much Michael Jordan really worked to get to where he is and also to show how much respect he got from other people and the players and to also show teens that hard work and avoiding different situations can lead you to greatness. The intended audience is for teens so he could really get to a teenager who is playing sports or wanting to play sports giving them advice and putting themselves in situations jordan was in and the things he did to avoid getting in trouble with law or people. What motivated him to write this watching michael jordan play and the things he did and people just didn't understand how he is so good so what he did was write a book about mikes life and showing all the respect he got from certain people and his highschool days and all of the adversity he had to deal with but when he got on the court it was a different story. I can relate to this book when it talks about all the hard work he put in and people he avoided i know what it feels like to be not looked at as one of the best in high school or just the hard work and people don't understand your grind our passion that you have for the game in basketball or in any sport. The author did convince me that Michael Jordan is truly a all time great player showing his stats and giving me quotes from other great basketbal players going back to his highschool days and relating the book to the movie space even with him hitting clutch buzzer beaters all the time. I still feel this book is a great read for all people not just teenagers because it talks about how to avoid things and stay focus on your goal and life and a lot of people struggle with that every day because they get distracted by other things or people. Mainly like how he explained michael jordan as this person who is a genius which he as it makes me want to be better than mike in whatever I do not just basketball to know I can get this type of recognition I like it alot it makes you want to take everything serious that's why I feel this book is a very good read for a lot of people. Some examples of inspiration are when he was talking about how he believes that anyone can be just as good as him makes you feel like anything is possible in life like he isn't the only jordan there could be another person just as good as he is.The Author use of writing style is long dialogue he uses quotes to explain his ideas and how he felt about jordan and even his stats to back up his passages about him and he also like to use lots of pictures to show you proof of what is going on.

    How to be Like Mike“How to be Like Mike,” is a biography about Michael Jordan’s legendary career as one of the best, if not the best, basketball players alive. It tells how he had an extreme work ethic and passion for the game, which separated him from everybody else in the NBA at the time. This story provides quotes from famous people and athletes from different sports telling the world how great of an athlete he truly was. My favorite line from the book would have to be, “Show me a person without goals and I’ll show you someone who’s dead”. This is a quote from Winston Churchill basically meaning that everybody has goals in life, and if you don’t, then there is no point in living. My favorite character in the book is without question Michael Jordan. He’s is my all-time idol, and he is also my favorite basketball player of all time. (Whenever I’m on the basketball court, I try my hardest to play like Michael did, “110% every second you’re on the court”.) I would recommend this book to any basketball fan, or somebody who needs a role model in their life; because Michael shows characteristics that everybody should follow and look up to. The introduction was the part that captivated my attention because that’s where the conflict in the story presented itself.(Michael Jordan failed to make his varsity basketball team his sophomore year of high school, so he worked his tail off, practicing more hours of basketball than he did sleep every night.)When reading this book, I felt inspired and amazed. He did things nobody had ever done before in situations where nobody expected it. He inspired me because I feel that I share the same love for the game as he did, and we share similar characteristics when it comes to game time. This story made me feel one great feeling, INSPIRED. We almost share the same story, I failed to make the varsity team last year. So, I have been working as hard as I possibly can to make myself a better basketball player so, hopefully, one day I will become a legend in the great game of basketball like my role model, Michael Jordan.

    HOW TO BE LIKE MIKEHow to be like Michael Jordan was a wonderful book to read. Not only did I understand the book, but I also comprehend what obstacles Michael Jordan endured. Michael was a Legend at basketball ,but the reason why he was good because his hard work and dedication he put on the court when no one's watching.He held himself to such higher standards than others,and wouldn't say no for an answer. His hunger and competitiveness is what led to his success essentially why me and others look up to him as an hero. The book starts out telling the success of his team and explaining what coaches say about this him." Think about MJ's focus. He'd have two or three defenders on him at all times. Think how it must feel to compete against two or three guys every night. He'd face that battle every game."This was a quote in the book said by Nate McMillan the head coach of the Seattle Sonics. In the book it really shows MJ focus in life which was to prove everyone wrong and win the NBA championship. This is an informational book about Michael Jordan,but it also showed me that hard work pays off. Even when Michael overcame adversity he and went on to a professional career. I rate this book an 4/5. If you want to know more about Michael Jordan and his road to success this book is a good for you. Not only does this book talk about Michael it talks about life lessons like focus,hard work,responsibility,trust and teamwork. The book also mentions Michael experience when he was a kid until he was an adult. Micheal Jordan teaches key life tips that you will need to be successful at anything you want to do.

    How to be Like MikeHow to be Like Mike written by Pat Williams was an inspirational book about the way that Michael Jordan lived his life. The book is structured quite uniquely; every chapter is like a new life lessons and basketball lessons. Also an interesting part of the story is that there are quotes from different people on almost every page. One of the most inspiring parts of the book is when Jordan talks about how he got cut from his high school varsity team. He had many quotes about this experience such as, “It was embarrassing not making that team. They posted the roster and it was there for a long, long time without my name on it.” I really enjoyed reading about how Jordan viewed things and it really showed how hard of a work ethic he had. I thought I understood how hard he worked and what he did but I wasn’t even close. One thing that interested me is how much Michael Jordan talks about the mental aspect of the game and how staying positive is the only thing you should do. Also he states how failure leads to success. He said in an interview, “I have missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I have lost almost 300 games. On 26 occasions I have been entrusted to take the game winning shot… and missed. And I have failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.” This book not only was very inspiring but showed how Jordan lived his life, which clearly led to great success.

    How to be like Mike is a great book about the life of the greatest basketball player ever. Michael Jordan wasn't human. I mean he was a human, but the man thought like a true beast and competitor. He wanted to win at everything he did, second was good enough of Michael. He held himself to such high standards as well. Excellence was all he chased as a basketball player. Michael grew Ip in North Carolina . As a tenth grade basketball he was cut from the high school team.Yes you read that right. He decided right then and there that he was going to be the best basketball player he could possibly be and that know one would stop him. He later attended the university of North Carolina and played under legendary coach Dean Smith. Smith became like a father to Jordan. Michael was selected with 3rd overall pick I'm the 1985 NBA draft by the Chicago Bulls. Michael became the hardest worker in the NBA and he held all his teammates to that same standard. Michael went onto to become the greatest basketball player this world has ever seen. I would recommend this book to anyone who like basketball and wants to be inspired to be the best they can be.

    How to Be Like Mike: Life Lessons about Basketball's Best I enjoyed reading this book because Michael Jordan is one of my favorite all time players. He revolutionized the game. Without him we would not play at such a high pace. I enjoyed this book because it really showed you the competitive fire that Jordan had.“Be true to the game, because the game will be true to you. If you try to shortcut the game, then the game will shortcut you. If you put forth the effort, good things will be bestowed upon you.” -Michael Jordan How Michael Jordan defined beliefs and values was prioritization. He believed that if he worked hard enough and had a will to succeed, that he could do anything he set his mind too. This is a real inspirational story that shows how to be a competitive champion like Michael Jordan. MJ is an icon for good reason. Shouldn't you listen to him? I really enjoyed this book because of the lessons it teaches. I believe that Jordan is the greatest basketball player of all time. I would recommend this book to any connoisseur of basketball. I would also recommend this book to any young kids who need motivation.

    I read this book during the past summer and I actually really enjoyed reading it. That's pretty rare because I don't really like reading. This book is about the greatest player ever to play basketball, Michael Jordan. It talks a lot about the life lessons Jordan had and it also includes what Jordan did to overcome the adversary in his life. This book is basically a motivational biography written by Pat Williams.I really liked this book because I felt like the book motivated me to work harder and do better at whatever I was doing. Another reason I liked this book is because it gave me a better understanding of what Jordan was like and how he thought. And because I play basketball I felt like the book was geared for my liking more so than other books.Overall this is a Great Book. It really motivates you.

    This Book was a rat book for any reasons. it may be about Micheal Jordan and his accomplishments but what you really need to take out of this book is what Micheal did to get what he wanted and to achieve his goals. This book is inspiring in many ways it made me personally want to turn my life around. The fact that Micheal was cut from his high school basketball team as a Sophomore shows his true perseverance and willingness to fight for what he loved and that's why I loved this book Its definitely reccomended for anybody that has any goals set for themselves in life whether it be sports or anything in between.

    Saya mengira buku ini tentang basket... bagaimana bisa bermain basket dengan baik seperti Michael Jordan.Ternyata dugaan saya salah..buku ini sama sekali bukan buku tentang basket. Tetapi buku ini, belajar bagaimana menjadi seseorang seperti Michael Jordan, berbagai sikap yang membuat Michal bisa sukses di lapangan basket.Di dalam setiap lembarnya terdapat kutipan kata-kata motivasi yang seusai dengan tema yang dibahas di buku ini.Meskipun tidak suka basket, tidak rugi rasanya membeli buku ini :)

    This book is great because its showing how Michael Jordan was the greatest basketball player ever. Michael Jordan is dark skin, bald, and who played for the Chicago Bulls. So far in the first paragraph , his favorite game was 1997-98 Chicago Bulls against the 1997-98 Utah Jazz. And the reason that it was is favorite game was because it was is last game of his career. So he was happy and discontented because he couldn't play in the NBA anymore.

    I loved this book, because its about micheal and his ways of doing things. Ilearned a lot of lessons on how to get better in basketball, as well in just the normal day world. They talked about how he became so famous. They also talked about all his NBA championships.

    A quick read. It's not a sports bio, it's a motivational book. Fantastic and great. Am sure I will be reading this over and over again. MJ was not just a great basketballer. He was a great sportsman and a great man and a great businessman.

    Very encouraging read on the lessons MJ taught us.It was a truly enjoyable light read that provided a backdrop of the success that Mr Jordan obtained.I always believed in the principal of hard work.There is tons of people with talent but only the hard workers reaches the top.
