This book seamlessly weaves together the rise of both the NBA and Michael Jordan, the author's point being that the two had a symbiotic relationship. MJ aficionados should beware; this is not a biography--Halberstam also discusses other teams and players at length. Narrator Richard M. Davidson has the requisite reportorial voice: strong, authoritative, clear and reassuring. It's a pleasure to hear him read about Jordan's exploits, but also about the rise of pro basketball in the 1980's. He's not flashy, nor does he use any character voices, but his words give us the author's words with more clarity. And that's exactly what a good audio.
