Michael Jordan is the rare global icon whose celebrity extends beyond his original stage and onto multiple platforms. His relentless determination produced six NBA Championships and some of the most spectacular performances in sports history, while his enduring grace and unique sense of style made him equally famous in the worlds of fashion, business, and marketing. In this book, he makes it clear that the basis for his phenomenal success came from the inside out, thanks in part to those who guided him along the way. His skill, work ethic, philosophy, personal style, competitiveness and presence have flowed from the basketball court and into every facet of his life. This is a book about the power of collaboration and teamwork, the energy generated when people combine their creativity and passion, and a fearless desire to lead.--From publisher description.
