◨ Today Show I May Be Wrong but I Doubt It ♈ Book Author Charles Barkley ♔ ◨ Today Show I May Be Wrong but I Doubt It ♈ Book Author Charles Barkley ♔ NBA star Barkley still only the second basketball player in history, along with Wilt Chamberlain, to total than 23,000 points, 12,000 rebounds and 4,000 assists has refused to go quietly into the mists of sports legends One of the most controversial professional athletes in any sport, Barkley has repositioned himself as an outspoken and provocative sports commentator for the TNT network, reaping a new and large viewing audience in the process This sports memoir Barkley s first is a highly entertaining and remarkably thoughtful work that successfully continues his ongoing repositioning from on court wild man to provocative analyst I m trying to transition from sports into something broader, with wider social implications, he writes In a book that often reads like an overlong Sports Illustrated interview, Barkley explores a wide range of interests Each chapter has a theme, and Barkley has no problem speaking his mind on any topic, whether it is politics Poor white people and poor black people just don t know how much they have in common Rich people don t give a damn about either group or lack of minority control in sports Black people ought to want other black people to be successful and work hard and accumulate some wealth and build a new damn reality In between these chapters are other sections that retell some of the great and not so great moments in his career, such as his involvement with Michael Jordan in the U.S Olympic medal winning Dream Team But transitions within and between chapters can often be jarring in one chapter he suddenly launches into a criticism of abusive priests Despite that, this is a very entertaining look at one of the most intelligent minds in pro sports, and like Barkley s career, it s bound to produce fierce arguments.Copyright 2002 Reed Business Information, Inc.Barkley was named one of the top 50 players in NBA history and, since recently retiring, has served as a popular studio analyst for TNT s basketball coverage This, however, is not a basketball book per se Instead, in the guise of a memoir, it is a series of riffs and rants on a variety of topics by a man who sometimes talks about going into politics At times, the subject matter is repetitive, and occasionally Barkley s arguments can be self contradictory More often, though, the observations are dead on For example, on the subject of the keepin it real attitude of athletes who have struck it rich but continue self consciously to keep the trappings of poverty, Barkely feels that nothing could be phonier or self destructive Noted sports writer Wilbon edited the book, but the tone is clearly and happily all Sir Charles The outspoken Barkley has always been an intelligent and provocative guy who can be entertaining while also having something worthwhile to say His book is no different Recommended for public libraries.John Maxymuk, Rutgers Univ Lib., Camden, NJCopyright 2002 Reed Business Information, Inc.
