I had hopes that this Chamberlain biography would offer some new information about a legend; and a fascinating man. My first memories of the NBA were the Chamberlain/ Russell matchups that were seemingly played out every Sunday afternoon from January to May. Though Wilt usually had superior numbers the Celtics always almost invariably came out on top; victories that were invariably credited to Russell. I'd read both of Wilt's autobiographies and though he appeared to be quite open and opinionated it was only his point of view presented; I expected something different from a third person view of his life. What I got were repackaged versions of the same stories I'd already heard or read previously presented in a less than professional way by a narrator who seemed unsure and uncomfortable. Eventually I gave up; if you're a new fan of the NBA's old school stars you might enjoy this one but I found it repetitive and unprofessional.

Any additional comments?
A reasonable book, not much new information or analysis. But the narration is achingly bad, distracting from the text.
