But after just one season with the Chicago Bulls, a team starved for a new messiah since Michael Jordan's retirement, Williams destroyed his career when he suffered a horrific motorcycle accident. In an instant, the man with as fast a first step as any point guard in history could no longer do anything for himself, including walk.
In Life Is Not an Accident, Jay Williams shares his story - both heartbreaking and uplifting - of being a young man trying to wrest control of his life from his overinvolved parents, from the pleasures and perils of fame and money, and from the near-fatal mistake that threatened to define him.

Taking ownership of mistakes
I had the opportunity to meet Jay and hear him tell a small portion of his story at a conference in Pebble Beach. It inspired me to buy the audible version of his book. It had to have been hard to expose himself to relive these events in telling his story and the raw emotion plays through in the audible version. It was one of those books that I wanted to keep listening to every chance I got. Powerful message for young people. You will root for Jay's star to continue to rise after finishing this book.

Great listen but no surprises
Decent memoir about a life around basketball. A familiar story if you have followed Williams's career much. Was hoping for more insight into why/how he was able to get his life back on track better than many "fallen" athletes, but his transitions all come off as simple/immediate. Not the best performance (reading) but is good to be done by author.
