Críticas:

"Riveting, myth-shattering."

-- Dan McGrath, "Chicago Tribune"



Michael Sokolove author of "The Ticket Out: Darryl Strawberry and the Boys of Crenshaw" Leahy is that most unwelcome of characters around a pro sports team: a truth-teller. Where others were intimidated by Michael Jordan or just plain blinded by his star power, Leahy stood his ground and assembled a tough-minded, fair, and gripping account that reveals something far more interesting than Michael Jordan the icon -- he gives us Jordan, the man.

Glenn Stout series editor of "The Best American Sports Writing" Michael Leahy may be the first author to overcome his awe of Michael Jordan and let us see another Jordan, the legend in the autumn of his career. In this book we don't just meet a myth streaking across the sky -- we meet a very human being finally returning to earth. "When Nothing Else Matters" transcends its subject, for as we watch Jordan descend, we also somehow see ourselves.

Stephanie Davis, "GQ, " November '04 No one's covered Michael Jordan like Michael Leahy. In 2001, Leahy a staff writer for The Washington Post, was assigned to write about the legend's return to basketball with the Washington Wizards and nearly everything he did off court as well. (At one point, Wizard coach Doug Collins refers to Leahy as a "stalker.") This obsessive reportage resulted in an acclaimed series for the "Post" and is now a book, "When Nothing Else Matters: Michael Jordan's Last Comeback" (Simon & Schuster) -- easily the most fully formed portrait of Jordan ever written and one of the best sports books in recent memory.

If you know Jordan from those "Be Like Mike" Gatorade commercials, you are unlikely to recognize the petulant protagonist of "When Nothing Else Matters." Leahy discovers an ailing star on the downward arc of his career -- "moving like a sea captain with a wooden peg for a right leg," he writes at one point. As he declines, Jordan claws at everyone around -- teammates (he calls one teammate a "faggot"), the competition (he lusts to destroy challengers like Kobe Bryant), and most of all, his employer (Wizards owner Abe Pollin). But this Jordan seldom makes the papers, because the sports media are so beholden to Earth's Most Beloved Star they dare not risk alienating him. "Around Jordan power flowed one way," Leahy writes. "Reporters were sharecroppers: They tilled him only at his pleasure."

There's plenty of gossip in "When Nothing Matters" -- Leahy doesn't hold back on the tales of Jordan's gambling and infidelities, and David Stern will enjoy the story of the NBA referee who allegedly set Jordan up with a girl -- but in the end, this is a far more melancholy than tawdry tale. Michael Jordan was undoubtedly the greatest basketball player of his time. It's just a shame it took us so long to find out he was a human being too.

"Riveting, myth-shattering."
-- Dan McGrath, "Chicago Tribune"

""When Nothing Else Matters" gives us the best look we are likely to have of Jordan in decline...The result is a richly detailed, anecdote-driven account of one of the most famous men in the world approaching the end of his rope."
-- Ron Rapoport, "Chicago Sun-Times"

"The best sports book of the year...easily the most fully formed portrait of Jordan ever written."
-- GQ

"Riveting, myth-shattering."
-- Dan McGrath, Chicago Tribune

"Michael Leahy has written a heck of a book....Mr. Leahy combines an unrelenting eye for detail with extraordinary big-picture analysis."
-- Jon Ward, The Washington Times

"A gripping behind-the-scenes book...an important corrective to our current celebrity culture."
-- John Marshall, Seattle Post-Intelligencer

Reseña del editor:

As one of the greatest, most celebrated athletes in history, Michael Jordan conquered professional basketball as no one had before.

As one of the greatest, most celebrated athletes in history, Michael Jordan conquered professional basketball as no one had before. Powered by a potent mix of charisma, nearly superhuman abilities, and a ferocious need to dominate the game, he won six NBA championships with the Chicago Bulls and captured every basketball award and accolade conceivable before retiring and taking a top executive post with the Washington Wizards. But retirement didn't suit the man who was once king, and at the advanced age of thirty-eight Michael Jordan set out to reclaim the court that had been his dominion. When Nothing Else Matters is the definitive account of Jordan's equally spectacular and disastrous return to basketball.Washington Post writer Michael Leahy reveals the striking contrast between the public Jordan and the man whose personal style alienated teammates and the Washington owner who ousted him.
