Review:

"Michael Jordan is well named. Although he was not baptized in the river Jordan, he has been seen as 'Jesus in Mikes,' as 'God's child.' His first name is also suggestive, since he has even been compared to Michelangelo, his athleticism likened to an 'art form.' This is not all. For Jordan has even been compared to Gandhi and Einstein. The author falls into such idolatry when he speaks of Jordan playing the game with 'spiritual' determination. Halberstam writes well, his book is deeply absorbing. It is implicitly about far more than the world Jordan made. It paints the picture of a world ready to embrace a great athlete as a demi-god, the world we have made." Reviewed by Andrew Witmer, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)
