Bad as I Wanna Be book.

Bad as I Wanna Be book. It's evident very early in the book that these are Dennis Rodman's words, Dennis Rodman's thoughts; on every other page he contradicts something he'd previously said, actually doing it multiple times even within the same paragraph! Even still, I was surprised at the amount of coherent thoughts and opinions in the book.

A wild ride inside the glowing head of Dennis Rodman-the NBA's greatest rebounder and America's most outspoken and outrageous athlete. When Sports Illustrated put the man they call "America's most provocative athlete" on their cover, they sold more copies than any other issue they had sold in a decade (except the swimsuit issue). Why? Because Dennis Rodman, superstar basketball player who joined the Chicago Bulls for the 1996 season, has more in common with Mick Jagger than with his new teammate Michael Jordan.

If Bad As I Wanna Be tells us virtually nothing new about the unwound hound of rebound, it’s well-acted and surprisingly involving, considering the zealous overmarketing of its oddball subject. Rodman himself will no doubt exult over his treatment here as a complex, misunderstood free spirit who just wants to be loved on his own terms, dammit. As a bonus, he gets to be played by an actor who looks rather like Will Smith.

Why? Because Dennis Rodman, superstar basketball player who joined the Chicago Bulls for the 1996 season, has more in common with Mick Jagger than with his new teammate Michael Jordan. With his body-covering tattoos and ever-changing fluorescent hair, Rodman's sideline antics and celebrated benchings have captivated sports fans as much as his record-breaking on-court performances and earned him a reputation as a rebel with the same penchant for shocking behavior as his on-again off-again squeeze, Madonna. In Bad as I Wanna Be he shares his surprising and candid opinions on everything from fame, money, and race relations, to sex, drugs, and rock-n-roll--and he'll talk about his life, from going to prison for stealing watches to his daughter, the light of his life.At a time when most celebrities and professional athletes try to control their public personas like politicians and refrain from expressing their true beliefs, Dennis Rodman is a refreshingly unique, uncompromising individual who both transcends his world and refuses to conform to it. Bad as I Wanna Be is as candid, intriguing, and unforgettable as he is.

Bad As I Wanna Be is a great biographical book that presents Dennis Rodman,the most outspoken,outrageous and controversial athlete of his generation. Upon joining as a member of the three-peat winning Chicago Bulls from 1996 to 1998,Dennis became well-known for his body-covering tattoos,ever-changing fluorescent hair,sideline antics and romance Madonna that has captivated many fans as much as his record-breaking on-court performances in terms of rebounding and defense and his contribution to the Bulls' championships. He shares his opinion on practically any issue under the sun from his fame,money,race,controversies that he has been involved with,drugs,sex and the shocking behavior that he exhibits on and off the court.Added to that,we also get to see him how he deals with fatherhood particularly to his young daughter who provides him the light of his light.

I bought this book expecting that I will learn the reason behind the outrageousness of Rodman.But it brought more than that as the insights he provided everything about life provided great lessons that one could apply in one's life. I was amazed by the fact that this athlete that people are amused with is basically a sensible person with a lot of great insights on how to live life.And most of all,it was also one raw and honest biography that readers rarely expect from a celebrity.

You can read this book from several points of view.

- If you love basketball (as I do) you can learn and enjoy at the same time just reading it.

- If you want to understand how the life works,
Rodman can teach you.

In many ways the things that happened to him, are the same stuff that everybody gets in life.
Individual Success, Team success, love, frustration, crazy stuff, etc.

The only thing that I don't like about the book, is that SOMETIMES Rodman believes that he is the focus on everything. But that only shows the fact : Rodman is a human being.
I like how Rodman plays and the respect that he has about himself.
By the way, I don't have the american way of live, because I don't live in USA. So this can give you a different perspective for my understanding about the book.
So, let the man live his own life

First off, after looking at the cover of this book, you'll find out that "Bad as I wanna be" doesn't appeal to everyone. Why? Quite simply because the cover features Dennis Rodman nude on a motorcycle. I'd also like to include that, as if the cover weren't enough, the back of the book features a picture of Rodman's bare @$$ - uncensored.
After trying to get those disturbing images out of my head, I decided to take the time and read the full book. This book was published in 1997, so it doesn't include his final days (the latest it goes is his 1996 run with the Bulls), but it does greatly detail his entire life and all the troubles he's had growing up. I just have a few comments on some of the stuff he says:
- This guy is an egomaniac. There's actually a quote in here where he says something like "Jordan is number 1 in the NBA, Shaq is #2, and everyone knows I'm #3". Is he serious? He was a great player and everything, but I wouldn't even think of putting him in the top 10. He was #3 on the Bull's team (behind Jordan and Pippen of course), but he definitely wasn't #3 in the entire league.
- Dennis is extremely bitter. I thought it might be interesting to hear Dennis' thoughts on other players and coaches. Sadly, I was mistaken. Throughout the entire book, he just constantly complains about almost everyone he's come into contact to in the NBA. It gets rather boring after a while.
- The way Rodman describes the games, you'd think the team that gets the most Rebounds wins. He acts as if points don't mean anything in the NBA and the only thing that shows how well you play is the amount of rebounds you get. To me, it seemed like he was trying to cover his own @$$ here, since Rodman never was much of a scorer.
I haven't read very many NBA books, but if all of them are like this, I think I'll pass. If you're an NBA fan, I'd suggest to skip this one. If you're a Rodman fan, there's a small chance you might enjoy this.
I've been interested in Dennis Rodman ever since his "colored" hair hit the courts. After reading "Bad As I Wanna Be", I learned that Dennis Rodman is so much more than the average person is able to see. Many people critisize the man because of his "different" ways of living. I give him all the credit in the world for not believing that he needs to be just another Shaquiel O'Neal jock role model. His book proves that he is definitely not a stereotype to be reckoned with. Rodman sets his own rules and lives by them. He's living life the way he wants and to the fullest. That's something thåt most people can't say for themselves. I suggest this book to anyone who is interested in learning about one man's individuality towards life. It's a definite up close and personal look at no ordinary basketball star
