Publisher's Summary

The incredible and inspiring story of Stephen Curry, the greatest shooter basketball has ever seen, and the ascension of the Golden State Warriors, a team on the verge of being an NBA dynasty, by longtime Warriors beat reporter and Bay Area News Group sports columnist Marcus Thompson.

When it comes to Stephen Curry - point guard for the Golden State Warriors and reigning MVP of the NBA - journalists, fans, and sports analysts are running out of ways to say "wow". Deemed too small and too short at 6'3" and 180 pounds by NBA coaches around the league, Curry has taken the game back from the bigger men who usually dominate the court. With his incredible shooting ability that started a "three-point revolution", he led the Warriors to 73 wins in the 2015-2016 season, beating out Michael Jordan and the 1996 Chicago Bulls' longtime record.

Eh...

Any additional comments?

Very, very corny at times. Almost to the point that it's like a children's book. The narrator is perfect for this kind of book, but it didn't really live up to my expectations. I was thinking there would be more in depth stories on who Steph is as a person and whatnot. It was more of a breakdown of his games and what was going on in more detail. It also skipped all over the place. It goes from a playoff game to his childhood, to another playoff game, to meeting his wife. Could've been better, but it definitely wasn't terrible and I did learn a lot about Steph in general, but I didn't know an insane amount about him to begin with. So use that information as you please.

Amazing!!!

This was my first time listening to a book being read instead of reading it myself (which I still might do) I really enjoyed listening to this book learning about the upbringing of Steph. Learning about his relationship with the church and his mother really shows you why Curry is the man he appears to be.

My one minor knock on the book was it seemed at times repetitive. As if Marcus wrote each chapter to be its own stand alone article for ESPN or some other sports news outlet. Each time needing to reintroduces to Currys amazing exploits. I did not mind this at all, just something I noticed.

I would give 10 stars if I could though fantastic!!!

Great Story, Great Narration

For every #DubNation fan out there, this book won't teach you many new things about Curry, but it will make you appreciate his greatness even more. Marcus Thompson is a legend, and his book did not disappoint.

It makes you appreciate the hard work of Steph

It was fun to hear the back story of Steph's life and how he is trying to live life and play basketball the right way. If you hate him for whatever reason it will be good to get to know what he's all about.

A must read by Marcus Thompson

Written in 2017 but just finished reading after the Warriors won their ;4th championship. The author has captured why Steph is the glue that has helped this franchise to its success with his unselfish style, dedication to improve and willingness to take a back seat during the Durant years. Steph and the Warriors are where they are now in 2022 because of Steph. More to come from Steph and the Warriors. Can’t wait for the next edition by Marcus Thompson.
Steph is the face of the NBA now and a role model that all children should know about as to how his has shared his success off the court ad as well as on. Great Father, husband , mentor and leader. No other NBA legend can live up to what Steph is still writing as a complete person at all levels of life.

An Audiobook Narrator Who Can Pronounce Athlete’s Names!

The book is fantastic and gives a beautiful window into Curry’s character and brilliance, but I gotta give a big shout out to Caz the narrator because after listening to multiple sports audiobooks where the narrator butchers just about every athlete’s name, it was so refreshing to hear him smoothly read every player’s name correctly AND deliver the book in a pleasing, professional manner. Big ups!

Boring, only for Warriors fans

I am an NBA fan but not specifically a warriors fan and I got bored very fast. 95% of the book is just a recap of the Warriors seasons from 2014-2017 and you learn hardly anything about Steph Curry’s life. I was hoping this would be more of a behind the scenes look but it is strictly a recap of the Warriors games. Also the story does not follow any chronological order which is frustrating.
