Publisher Description

Superman. Diesel. The Big Aristotle. Shaq Fu. The Big Daddy. The Big Shaqtus. Wilt Chamberneezy. The Real Deal. The Big Shamrock. Shaq.

You know him by any number of names, and chances are you know all about his legendary basketball career: Shaquille "Shaq" O'Neal is a four-time NBA champion and a three-time NBA Finals MVP. After being an All-American at Louisiana State University, he was the overall number one draft pick in the NBA in 1992. In his 19-year career, Shaq racked up 28,596 career points (including 5,935 free throws!), 13,099 rebounds, 3,026 assists, 2,732 blocks, and 15 All-Star appearances.

These are statistics that are almost as massive as the man himself. His presence-both physically and psychologically-made him a dominant force in the game for two decades.

But if you follow the game, you also know that there's a lot more to Shaquille O'Neal than just basketball.

Shaq is famous for his playful, and at times, provocative personality. He is, literally, outsize in both scale and persona. Whether rapping on any of his five albums, challenging celebrities on his hit television show "Shaq Vs.," studying for his PhD or serving as a reserve police officer, there's no question that Shaq has led a unique and multi-dimensional life. And in this rollicking new autobiography, Shaq discusses his remarkable journey, including his candid thoughts on teammates and coaches like Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, Phil Jackson, and Pat Riley.

From growing up in difficult circumstances and getting cut from his high school basketball team to his larger-than-life basketball career, Shaq lays it all out in Shaq Uncut: My Story.

Shaquille uncut

A good quick read. Revealing at times, at times not. He deserves credit for trying to live the most interesting life he can. Did not like the abuse he took from his father.

Must read biography

Nonfiction novels are usually not my thing. But this biography of Shaquille O'Neal is a perfect way to find out what made one of the greatest basketball players of all time tick. I read it in one day. It is easy to read and flows smoothly.

Fun read

This is a pretty good book, interesting and funny at the same time. The first chapter or so is a little boring. It's the normal "celebrity tells us how he grew up", a lot of stuff already known. However, it gets going after that. It's fun to hear about different players shaq played with. If you can get past shaq's self absorbing manner and slightly racist comments you will find that it's very entertaining book.
