Publisher's Summary

When Sports Illustrated put him on their cover, they sold more issues than any other in a decade (except the swimsuit edition). Why? Because Dennis Rodman is not just the NBA's greatest rebounder - he's America's most outrageous, outspoken, and provocative athlete. With his body-covering tattoos and ever-changing fluorescent hair, Rodman's off-the-court antics have captivated sports fans as much as his record-breaking performances. In Bad as I Wanna Be, Rodman shares his candid opinions on everything from fame, money, and race relations to sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll. He discusses his NBA championships with the Pistons and Bulls, his relationships with teammate Michael Jordan and old flame Madonna, his troubled adolescence, and all the controversies that have enthralled the public. Shocking yet sensitive, Rodman tells it like it is in this compelling, no-holds-barred memoir.

Audio CliffNotes version of Dennis Rodman's life.

This audio book is a little over one hour long and more like a highlights reel of limited information Dennis wants you to know about his life. I am not sure why this book was put out, probably for the money only, but it was not published to give Rodman fans any clue as to what his life or accomplishments in the NBA were. I am sure an hour of research on the Internet would be a great deal more informative. Don't waste your time even if it is only an hour.

good book

better then I thought it would be. it was just too short. I guess he hadn't lived long enough. he should revisit his life again, since he is older.

an interesting monologue, nothing more.

i wish Rodman had gone into more detail. I was totally into the story the entire time but it just ends with more questions raised than answered.

Strength and Character

I enjoyed this book because it showed that when you have a goal and you have power, will and determination all things are possible if you believe. He is a beautiful soul with a loving heart.

A must read or listen!

Only thing that would've made this better is if Dennis himself narrated! Although it was still good I couldn't help but thinking if I could hear Dennis it would've been great!
