Reviews

There are many NBA fans, this reviewer included, who consider Shaquille O'Neal among the most charming and downright funny sports superstars of the past 20 years. His second autobiography after Shaq Talks Back, which left off at the end of the 2000 season, this is written with MacMullan (NBA columnist, ESPN.com; coauthor with Larry Bird and Earvin Johnson Jr., When the Game Was Ours)-and it captures Shaq's personality, verve, and honesty. The new book revisits the past and also chronicles O'Neal's journey to his 2011 retirement with four NBA titles. Shaq talks about his childhood and his relationship with his stepfather, addresses the conflicts he has had on and off the basketball court, and discusses his charities and other interests, including his studying to become a police officer in Los Angeles and Miami Beach. Readers looking for Shaq's opinions of his famous teammates (Kobe Bryant, Anfernee Hardaway, LeBron James) will not be disappointed. After all, this is Shaq Uncut! Verdict An enjoyable read recommended to all NBA and O'Neal fans.-Todd Spires, Bradley Univ. Lib., Peoria, IL (c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

He's a giant. He's physically imposing; he has an imposing smile. In the game, he imposed his will, and he has done it for quite a long time. It's been a great run here, and we're going to miss him greatly. We hope we can find ways to keep him involved in the game.

--NBA Commissioner David Stern
He's the most dominant player I've ever seen. His presence, his physicality, his size and his speed made him an athletic phenomenon. He could run, he could move, he had unbelievable hands and he never got enough credit for being a great passer. He was one of a kind.--Boston Celtics head coach Doc Rivers
Shaq was more confident in his skin than anyone else of his stature. There's a warmth to him that is unmistakable. At the same time, he was the scariest player I've ever seen. He was that dominant. I've had a number of great relationships with great players, but he's the one who will always stand out in my mind.
--Hall of Famer Jerry West
Shaq was the most unique player in the history of the NBA. He was bigger than life in every way. The dominant game, the dominant personality, his work behind the scenes for charity...nobody has done more for our game than Shaq.

--Hall of Famer Larry Bird
Shaq's a wonderful person and he's been one of the greatest players ever. He understood the game; dealing with the fans, dealing with the press. .. Great, great player, a great, great personality.

--Hall of Famer Charles Barkley
What a career for Shaq Diesel!! The most dominating force to ever play the game. Great person to be around as well. Comedy all the time!!--LeBron James, via Twitter
