“Sometimes a winner is just a dreamer who never gave up.”
Michael Jordan defied gravity, transcended the world’s expectations, and exceeded the limits of age, soaring to fame as the world’s greatest basketball player of all time. While his talent was breathtaking to behold—those flying dunks and record-breaking 60-point games have inspired generations—the unseen forces behind his success are the kind we can all harness for our own. M. J. and his accomplishments were founded on discipline, hard work, and knowing how to channel the deep, competitive drive within. Michael Jordan: Life Lessons from His Airness offers a courtside seat to the wild ride that made Michael Jordan a star and reveals valuable insights for anyone trying to make their own lofty dreams come true.
The book provides an in-depth look at Jordan’s early years, his rise to fame, and his most spectacular achievements and includes original, full-color art that captures Michael Jordan’s unique spirit on and off the court. Digital illustrations were created by artist Gilang Bogy.
