Publisher's Summary

Michael Jordan is more than a great basketball player, he is a cultural phenomenon. This remarkable book by a Pulitzer Prize-winning writer offers human drama and penetrating insights into professional athletics. It helps you understand Jordan's epic career in the context of the new world of sports - one with higher stakes, more pressure, and less humanity.
Playing for Keeps takes you on the road with the team as the Chicago Bulls undergo their long, hard journey to six world championships. It shows how determination, intelligence, and integrity enabled Michael Jordan to lead his team to victory and become a cultural icon.
Halberstam, a highly regarded journalist and historian, has been a sports fan since the 1940s. Listeners will appreciate his rare, insider's view of the major figures and personal dynamics that shaped the game. Narrator Richard M. Davidson puts you in the middle of the action, and brings home the astonishing power of Jordan's life story.
