I just couldn't get into this book. I didn't know who Dave Bing was before acquiring this book in the Library Thing early reviewers giveaway. I started reading it but after about twenty five pages through i just couldn't get myself to be motivated enough to pick it up again to start reading where I left off so I moved on to my next book. It was difficult to follow and felt like I was reading a textbook or someone's term paper. ( )

I had never heard of Dave Bing and when I received this book, was intrigued. His story is interesting. However, at times, I couldn'ttell if this was a biography of Bing or a story of racial tensions in Detroit. The tension in Detroit is part of Bing's story, but the author can't seem to decide what his main focus is. ( )

I won this book on Librarything and have to review it. I found Mr. Bing to be an excellent role model for young men; his parents raised a very smart son. There are so few parents that still do raise their children. Anyway, I am not a HUGE fan of basketball but he was smart to treat his job as a job. You can't always go with the flow and hope for the best. If you want and deserve more, you have to make it happen.

He would start from the bottom and work his way up with no shame. Much respect. ( )

Another rags to riches story. It was interesting at the beginning to read about Dave Bing's childhood. Somewhere in the middle of the book, it became boring. I have not finished reading it. Maybe, I'll make another attempt in between novels. ( )
