Publisher's Summary

In 2012, Derrick Rose was on top of the world.

After growing up in Chicago's Englewood neighborhood, Rose achieved an improbable childhood dream: being selected first overall in the NBA draft by his hometown Chicago Bulls. 

The point guard, known to his family as "Pooh", was a phenom, winning the Rookie of the Year award and electrifying fans around the world. In 2011, he became the youngest MVP in league history. He and the Bulls believed the city's first berth in the NBA Finals since the Jordan era was on the horizon. Rarely had a bond between a player and fans been so strong, as the city wrapped its arms around the homegrown hero.

Six years and four knee surgeries later, he was waived by the Utah Jazz, a once surefire Hall of Fame career seemingly on the brink of collapse. Many speculated his days in the NBA were over.

But Derrick Rose never doubted himself, never believed his struggles on and off the court were anything other than temporary setbacks. Rather than telling the world he had more to give, he decided to show them.

D-Rose should've hired an Editor of some sorts

I love D-Rose and respect EVERYTHING he has accomplished and gone through. However this book was not a must read/listen IMO. Very unorganized and way too many repeated details throughout the book.

The book was a little too “ranty” but overall I was happy to see DRose open up like he did. Huge fan of his, keep grinding.

bit disappointing

I'm a fan of D Rose as a player and was excited to read /listen to his book. unfortunately this comes of as a list of "let me tell you why this wasn't my fault". He drifts about between subjects quite a bit and uses players and coaches first names which is fine if you have followed his career or the NBA but casual views might struggle. I'd have liked to hear more about his time in Memphis but he skims over it pretty quickly. He doesn't talk a lot about any particular game other than the 50 pointer for the Timberwolves

Not great, not terribe

I have never been a fan of Derrick Rose but been following the NBA for ages. I have now listened to majority of audio-books related to the NBA. This one doesn't stand out. Lots of personal frustration, excuses and explaining. Not that much of NBA stories and insights. I can understand Rose better now but by no means have become a fan of him.
