Becoming Kareem: Growing Up On and Off the Court - Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

I Picked Up This Book Because: Seemed like a good idea at the time.

I’m not sure what I was expecting. I knew Kareem was a basketball player and I knew I would be hearing about his life. I was surprised to learn what a deep thinker he is. How educated and well read. How he lived and dealt with the civil unrest going on in the country while trying to build a professional career.

I think hearing this in Kareem’s voice made it feel so much more personal. Kareem is not just a record setting athlete. He is a man of many interest with quite a few tales to tell. More than even those in this book I’m sure.
