The first memoir for young readers by sports legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
At one time, Lew Alcindor was just another kid from New York City with all the usual problems: He struggled with fitting in, with pleasing a strict father, and with overcoming shyness that made him feel socially awkward. But with a talent for basketball, and an unmatched team of supporters, Lew Alcindor was able to transform and to become Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

During his twenty seasons in the NBA, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar scored 38,387 points. It's no wonder he's the league's top scorer of all time. While playing for the Bucks and Lakers, he also snagged six NBA championships, made nineteen All-Star appearances, and was named the league's MVP six times. Needless to say, he's one of the greatest players to ever step on the hardwood.
