It's not every day that I'm blown away by a book about a sports figure. But MICHAEL JORDAN: THE LIFE, by Roland Lazenby, ranks up there with the very best. The depth of reporting, his frequent ascent into poetry, and his intelligent analysis of the life of this complicated, fascinating American icon deserve Pulitzer Prize consideration. Basketball journalist Roland Lazenby spent almost 30 years covering Michael Jordan's career in college and the pros. Lazenby draws on his personal relationships with Jordan's coaches; countless interviews with Jordan's friends and family members and interviews with Jordan himself to provide the first definitive study of Michael Jordan: the player, the icon, and the man.
