Description

Shaquille "Shaq" O'Neal is a four-time NBA champion and a three-time NBA Finals MVP. After being an All-American at Louisiana State University, he was the overall number one draft pick in the NBA in 1992. In his nineteen-year career, Shaq racked up 28,596 career points (including 5,935 free throws!), 13,099 rebounds, 3,026 assists, 2,732 blocks, and fifteen All-Star appearances. These are statistics that are almost as massive as the man himself. His presence-both physically and psychologically-made him a dominant force in the game for two decades. But if you follow the game, you also know that there's a lot more to Shaquille O'Neal than just basketball. Shaq is famous for his playful, and at times provocative, personality. He is, literally, outsize in both scale and persona. Whether rapping on any of his five albums, challenging celebrities on his hit television show Shaq Vs., studying for his PhD, or serving as a reserve police officer, there's no question that Shaq has led a unique and multidimensional life. And in this rollicking new autobiography, Shaq discusses his remarkable journey, including his candid thoughts on teammates and coaches like Kobe Bryant, Dwayne Wade, LeBron James, Phil Jackson, and Pat Riley. From growing up in difficult circumstances and getting cut from his high school basketball team to his larger-than-life basketball career, Shaq lays it all out in Shaq Uncut: My Story.

Professional reviews

"Shaq is one of the few American heroes who is as large as his persona. He moved on from his life in basketball to be a rapper, reality show and movie star, entrepreneur, and generous benefactor to charities and to those who helped him. Dion Graham's narration meets a great challenge, and he more than succeeds. Shaq's own voice begins this audio story: He's dramatic, spirited, and a delight to listen to. Graham continues when Shaq finishes. He perfectly captures Shaq's quirky speech patterns and conveys the drama of his eventful life. No listener will fail to chuckle upon hearing that dessert before dinner is a Shaq tradition. This sports bio is a cut above most others, and Graham's audio presentation makes it even more special.
