I liked the author's style of writing and also how she organized the different parts of the book.
I thought the book was great. I liked the story's that were in the book about the crazy things Shaq would do off the court. I also liked how you feel like Shaq is talking to you in some parts of the book. When you are reading the book you feel like you are in the game or with Shaq off the court.
