Playing for Keeps: Michael Jordan and the World He Made by David Halberstam



Hardcover with DJ in Good (G) condition. DJ has been worn and shows signs of discoloration. Price tag sticker residue on front of DJ. Pages clean and straight.

The author of the number-one bestseller "The Summer of '49" and other seminal books about American sports, politics, and culture now turns his attention to a modern American legend — Michael Jordan — whose name alone evokes excellence. Halberstam explores Jordan's character and achievements, not only as a professional champion, but as a teenager and student athlete. Halberstam also chronicles the commercial forces that have changed the game during Jordan's career and the people behind those forces. And finally, Halberstam documents Jordan's own business acumen, which, together with his athletic ability, has made him into the best-known person on this planet. This is a journalistic triumph, an appraisal and a celebration of the nearly mythical figure that is Michael Jordan.
