Presents a definitive biography of one of the greatest athletes of all time that chronicles not only LeBron James' meteoric rise to fame but also his solid family, political activism, and business empire.
The reigning king of the game and the first active NBA player to become a billionaire, LeBron James's ascent has been anything but effortless and predetermined. He won his destiny despite overwhelmingly long odds; his mother placed him with a family that gave him stability and put a basketball in his hands. Benedict shows the gradual rise of a star who, surrounded by a tight-knit group of teenage friends and adult mentors, accelerated into a speeding comet during high school. He went from a lost boy in Akron to a hero who uses his fortune to educate underprivileged children and lift up needy families-- and brought home Cleveland's first NBA championship. Benedict delves into LeBron's relationship with fame and power: how he has cultivated it, harnessed it, suffered from it, and leveraged it. -- adapted from jacket
