Porter (history, William Penn University) traces basketball star Jordan's career, starting with his formative years and education, then detailing his accomplishments during his years with the Chicago Bulls, his transition into and out of the Birmingham Barons, and his disappointing years with the Washington Wizards. The book highlights his on-court accomplishments, but also examines his disagreements with coaches and management, and his role as an advertising figure. B&w photos, a timeline, and an annotated bibliography of print and nonprint sources are included. The length, format, and subject areas of the bibliographies in the series are designed to meet educators requirements for secondary school assignments.
